Jak opravit budoucnost


Ve svých předchozích knihách autor krotil přehnaný optimismus ohledně toho, co přinese vývoj internetu. Po všeobecném vystřízlivění z optimismu Keen ve své nejnovější knize Jak opravit budoucnost naopak přichází s návodem, jak z této situace ven. Inspiraci nachází na jedné straně v historické zkušenosti s první industriální revolucí, na druhé straně sleduje podnětné případy ze současnosti, třeba estonský vládní program e-government umožňující společně spravovat věci veřejné.Kombinace digitální revoluce, celosvětového propojení a ekonomické stagnace vedla k vzestupu populismu a narušení občanského diskurzu. Andrew Keen ve své osvěžující knize nabízí nástroje, které by mohly pomoci s uzdravením našich společností a dovést nás k nadějnější budoucnosti. Walter Isaacson, autor bestsellerů Steve Jobs a Leonardo Da VinciVe své angažované a provokativní knize autor načrtává pět strategií - regulace, konkurenční inovace, informovaný zákaznický výběr, občanská odpovědnost a vzdělání -, které by společně mohly vést k otevřené decentralizované digitální budoucnosti Kirkus Reviews Jak opravit budoucnost je ambiciózní a důležitá kniha, která vyčnívá v nepřeberné řadě publikací, v nichž nejznamenitější technologičtí inovátoři bijí na poplach nad stavem internetu a pokoušejí se položit základy pro to, jak dát věci zase do pořádku.

The Internet is Not the Answer: Why the Internet Has Been an Economic, Political and Cultural Disaster - and How it Can be Transformed


"The worldwide web is now a quarter of a century old. Invented in 1989, there can be no doubt that the web, and the new businesses it has enabled, has transformed the world. But, according to Andrew Keen, this disruption has been a terrible failure. In The Internet is not the Answer, Keen has written a sharp, witty polemic proving that, so far, the web has been mostly a disaster for everyone except a tiny group of young privileged white male Silicon Valley multi-millionaires. Rather than making us wealthier, the unregulated digital market is making us all poorer. Rather than generating jobs, it is causing unemployment. Rather than holding our rulers to account, it is creating a brightly lit, radically transparent prison in which everything we do is recorded. Rather than promoting democracy, it is empowering mob rule. And rather than fostering a new renaissance, it is encouraging a culture of distraction, vulgarity and narcissism. So what is to be done? The next twenty-five years are key, Keen explains, because, by 2040, everyone alive will be online. In The Internet is not the Answer, he disrupts the disrupters by laying out a five-part solution to the crisis. He says we need to rethink the web, revive government authority, rebuild the value of content, resurrect privacy and, above all, reconceive humanity. The stakes couldn't be higher, he warns. If we do nothing at all, this new technology and the companies that control it will continue to impoverish us all."

The Internet is Not the Answer


"In this sharp and witty book, long-time Silicon Valley observer and author Andrew Keen argues that, on balance, the Internet has had a disastrous impact on all our lives. By tracing the history of the Internet, from its founding in the 1960s to the creation of the World Wide Web in 1989, through the waves of start-ups and the rise of the big data companies to the increasing attempts to monetize almost every human activity, Keen shows how the Web has had a deeply negative effect on our culture, economy and society. Informed by Keen's own research and interviews, as well as the work of other writers, reporters and academics, The Internet is Not the Answer is an urgent investigation into the tech world - from the threat to privacy posed by social media and online surveillance by government agencies, to the impact of the Internet on unemployment and economic inequality. Keen concludes by outlining the changes that he believes must be made, before it's too late. If we do nothing, he warns, this new technology and the companies that control it will continue to impoverish us all."

How to Fix the Future


In How to Fix the Future, Andrew Keen combines his experiences in Silicon Valley with extensive interviews and analysis to identify the strategies we need in order to tackle the huge challenges of this digital century, and shows how we have dealt with radical technological change in the past, especially after the Industrial Revolution.Travelling around the world, from India to Estonia, Germany to Singapore, he investigates the best (and worst) practices in five key areas - regulation, innovation, social responsibility, consumer choice and education - and concludes by examining whether we are seeing the beginning of the end of the America-centric digital world.Powerfully argued and deeply engaging, How to Fix the Future provides hope that the economic inequality, unemployment, erosion of privacy and individual alienation that the digital upheaval is causing may still be solvable, and that the future may yet become something that we can look forward to.
