Being Digital | [Nicholas Negroponte]

Being Digital

In lively, mordantly witty prose, Negroponte decodes the mysteries--and debunks the hype--surrounding bandwidth, multimedia, virtual reality, and the Internet, and explains why such touted innovations as the fax and the CD-ROM are likely to go the way of the BetaMax.

What the Critics Say

"Being Digital flows from the pen (or cursor) of a wizard who is himself helping to create the new cosmos into which we are hurtling....To read Being Digital is to enter the future it describes." (The New York Times Book Review)

    Story
    "Interesting topic but repeated too many times"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes, because it will help you understand were the current digital world comes from and towards where its heading. How our lives are impacted and affected with the evolution of the digital world


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I would have not repeated one concept or peace of information several times. I would have added more valuable content about how the digital world has impacted our daily lives and where are we heading towards.


    Have you listened to any of Penn Jilletteā€™s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No I haven't


    Was Being Digital worth the listening time?

    Yes, it was


    Any additional comments?

    Listening to the audio was very easy, because of the clarity of the speaker, its voice and tone. It was very easy to follow.
