Summary
"Only one generation in history (ours) will experience life both with and without the Internet. For everyone who follows us, online life will simply be the air they breathe. Today, we revel in ubiquitous information and constant connection, rarely stopping to consider the implications for our logged-on lives. Michael Harris chronicles this massive shift, exploring what we've gained--and lost--in the bargain. In [his] book, Harris argues that our greatest loss has been that of absence itself--of silence, wonder, and solitude"--
Summary
Citing the current generation's unique experience of life on and without the Internet, a chronicle of the modern world's massive shift to an information-driven, online existence evaluates the connected world's potentially costly absence of silence, contemplation and solitude.
