Computing is mere decades young, a set of technologies we have scarcely begun to develop. It's already been quite a ride. Now, imagine every gadget around you becoming ever faster, cheaper, tinier, more interconnected, more intelligent...especially more intelligent. The stories in Creative Destruction explore what we could face in the next half century or so: artificial intelligence, malicious software to makes us nostalgic for mere viruses, ever-more-perfect virtual reality, direct neural interfaces to computers, ubiquitous networks, and more. The internet: that was nothing.
Any additional comments?
not the book I thought it was. There's an economics book by the same title, and this books description is vague enough it sounds like it could be it. Only now that I see Audible lists it under 'scifi and fantasy' , which is the only tip-off that this book is not the very popular economics book of the same name, and almost same description. That said, I enjoy sci fi, so decided to give it a chance. The writing in this is on par with young adult stuff like the 'Goosebumps' series. It can be entertaining to adolescents, but if you are looking for something more substantial for adult level reading I'd skip this one. I couldn't get through it. Logic was too juvenile.
