Emma Gannon was born in 1989, the year the World Wide Web was conceived, so she's literally grown up alongside the Internet. There've been late night chat room experiments, sexting from a Nokia and dubious webcam exchanges. And let's not forget catfishing, MSN, digital friendships and #feminism. She was basically social networking way before it was a thing - and she's even made a successful career from it.
Ctrl Alt Delete is Emma's painfully funny and timely memoir, in which she aims to bring a little hope to anybody who has played out a significant part of their life online. Her confessions, revelations and honesty may even make you log off social media (at least for an hour).
Thanks Emma for being the metaphorical hug of "Its ok to fear feeling vulnerable on the Internet, eagerly embracing its many good things". I never thought I would finish the book feeling so good about me and will slowly venture into the social media the Internet offers. Thanks for sharing with me such a fun journey.
I bought this for the Mrs to listen to but ended up having a sneak preview and listening to it all. Funny in parts, though provoking and interesting for the remainder.
