Year 6, Book 22

22. You are Not a Gadget: A Manifesto by Jaron Lanier
I’ve had this book on my to-read list for awhile and finally decided to read it since the author is going to be speaking at the Association of College and Research Libraries conference that I will be attending in a few weeks. In the book Lanier examines the rise of the internet and how the way it has become easier to contribute to the web is harming humanity. That’s not his only point, but I felt like it was his main one. I have say that I didn’t agree with most of what he had to say. It’s definitely thought-provoking even if I didn’t agree with it. I look forward to hearing what he has to say at ACRL.
I give it 5 out of 10
