Abstract:

"The debate over whether the Internet is good or bad for us fills the airwaves and the blogosphere. But for all the heat of claim and counter-claim, the argument is essentially beside the point: It's here; it's everywhere. The real question is, do we direct technology, or do we let ourselves be directed by it and those who have mastered it? 'Choose the former, ' writes Rushkoff, 'and you gain access to the control panel of civilization. Choose the latter, and it could be the last real choice you get to make.'"--Back cover.
