Summary
Elegantly tracing the intellectual history of computer science, Foer puts the DNA of the very idea of "tech" under the microscope. Google, Facebook, Apple, and Amazon, he argues, are breaking laws intended protect intellectual property and privacy. This is not the path towards freedom and prosperity, but the total automation and homogenization of our social, political, and intellectual lives. Today's corporate giants want access to every facet of our identities and influence over every corner of our lives. Foer both indicts these companies, and shapes a path towards reining them in
Summary
A blistering and personal polemic against today's monolithic tech companies argues that in spite of the conveniences of their products, today's ambitious corporations are triggering consequences in the form of privacy compromises, intellectual property loss and the negative homogenization of social, political and intellectual arenas
