Description

Jaron Lanier (You Are Not a Gadget) is one of the most influential thinkers of our time. Known as the father of virtual reality, he draws on his expertise and experience as a computer scientist, musician and digital media pioneer to predict the revolutionary ways in which technology has transformed our culture. Lanier’s new book Who Owns the Future? is a visionary reckoning with the effects network technologies have had on our economy and charts the path toward a new information economy.

“At the bottom of Lanier’s cyber-tinkering is a fundamentally humanist faith in technology, a belief that wisely designed machines can bring us closer together by expanding the possibilities of creative self-expression…His mind is a fascinating place to hang out.”
– Los Angeles Times
