  • "In this book the author, father of virtual reality, and one of the world's most brilliant thinkers evaluates the negative impact of digital network technologies on the economy and particularly the middle class, citing challenges to employment and personal wealth while exploring the potential of a new information economy. This is his visionary reckoning with the most urgent economic and social trend of our age: the poisonous concentration of money and power in our digital networks. He has predicted how technology will transform our humanity for decades. He shows how Siren Servers, which exploit big data and the free sharing of information, led our economy into recession, imperiled personal privacy, and hollowed out the middle class. The networks that define our world, including social media, financial institutions, and intelligence agencies, now threaten to destroy it. But there is an alternative. In this book he charts a path toward a brighter future: an information economy that rewards ordinary people for what they do and share on the web."

  • ""Pionnier du Web et inventeur de la réalité virtuelle, Jaron Lanier a collaboré avec les plus grandes firmes du Net : l'envolée d'Internet, il l'a vécue de l'intérieur, la philosophie de la Silicon Valley, il connaît par cœur - les dérives du monde numérique, aussi... Car, pour le moment, Internet n'est pas l'Eldorado qu'on voudrait bien nous faire croire. Certes, il est en train de transformer notre économie de fond en comble, mais le 'tout gratuit', la transparence ou le partage des informations - pour certaines, très personnelles - que nous mettons sur le Net sont de vastes supercheries. Et pendant que ceux qui possèdent les ordinateurs les plus gros et les mieux connectés s'enrichissent, les autres - la majorité - s'appauvrissent. Les autres, c'est nous... Il s'agit d'un rapt général : notre société est en train de se faire déposséder de ses données - de sa richesse... Allons-nous laisser les gros serveurs maîtrisant les algorithmes les plus efficaces confisquer notre avenir ? Dans cet ouvrage animé par le souffle de la révolte, Lanier nous offre une réflexion décoiffante sur la façon dont chaque citoyen pourrait vivre sa vie - et la gagner ! - sur le Net. Visionnaire, il nous projette dans le futur d'Internet - notre futur. Car l'humain-naute n'a pas dit son dernier mot..." [Source : 4e de couv.]."
  • "La rivoluzione digitale distrugge più posti di lavoro di quanti ne crei. Ci rallegriamo di scoprire che sul Web tutto è "gratis" e "open", o sta per diventarlo, ma nel frattempo l'economia dell'informazione concentra sempre più potere e ricchezza nelle mani di pochi. Mentre celebriamo le virtù democratiche di Internet, consegniamo il futuro ai colossi che controllano i server centrali e traggono immensi profitti dai dati che ricavano osservando le nostre vite. Sono i Server Sirena che, ammaliandoci con il richiamo del "free", ci imprigionano in una stagnazione economica perenne, con ricorrenti crisi finanziarie e disuguaglianze sempre più gravi. Com'è possibile che le straordinarie innovazioni degli ultimi decenni abbiano generato un sistema così oligarchico e disumanizzante? Unendo lo sguardo del tecnologo a un'acuta sensibilità sociale, Jaron Lanier illustra come e perché le tecnologie di rete cambiano le dinamiche del potere economico. E con esempi di folgorante potenza evocativa ci avverte: quando prenderanno piede stampanti 3D, infermieri robotici e veicoli autoguidati, la disoccupazione dilagherà anche nell'industria, nella sanità e nei trasporti! Eppure, una via d'uscita realistica esiste. Se è vero che sono le informazioni a creare valore e arricchire i Server Sirena, bisogna concepire un sistema in cui gli individui siano retribuiti per le informazioni che producono e condividono ogni giorno."
  • "Jaron Lanier is the bestselling author of You Are Not a Gadget, the father of virtual reality, and one of the most influential thinkers of our time. For decades, Lanier has drawn on his expertise and experience as a computer scientist, musician, and digital media pioneer to predict the revolutionary ways in which technology is transforming our culture. Who Owns the Future? is a visionary reckoning with the effects network technologies have had on our economy. Lanier asserts that the rise of digital networks led our economy into recession and decimated the middle class. Now, as technology flattens more and more industries - from media to medicine to manufacturing - we are facing even greater challenges to employment and personal wealth. But there is an alternative to allowing technology to own our future. In this ambitious and deeply humane book, Lanier charts the path toward a new information economy that will stabilize the middle class and allow it to grow. It is time for ordinary people to be rewarded for what they do and share on the web."
