Who Owns the Future?
The “splendid” and “daringly unique” (The New York Times) scrutinize of advanced systems from the “David Foster Wallace of tech” (London Evening Standard)— declaring that to settle our economy, we should settle our data economy.
Jaron Lanier is the father of virtual reality and one of the world’s most splendid masterminds. Who Owns the Future? is his visionary retribution with the most earnest financial and social pattern of our age: the toxic convergence of cash and power in our advanced systems.
Lanier has anticipated how innovation will change our humankind for a considerable length of time, and his understanding has never been all the more earnestly required. He indicates how Siren Servers, which misuse enormous information and the free sharing of data, drove our economy into retreat, endangered individual protection, and dug out the white collar class. The systems that characterize our reality—including web-based social networking, monetary foundations, and insight organizations—now debilitate to demolish it.
Be that as it may, there is an option. In this provocative, idyllic, and profoundly sympathetic book, Lanier graphs a way toward a brighter future: a data economy that prizes common individuals for what they do and share on the web.
