Description

Are you tired of being spied on, manipulated and mistreated by technology that was supposed to make your life better? Do you feel dependent on devices and apps you wish you could live without? Social media and smartphone surveillance make us sick and unhappy, but what can we do? This book will help you find remedies for digital disorders, and reduce dependency and anxiety by making better technology choices. Just as the food we eat affects our bodily health, technology affects mental health and society. For the sake of yourself, your community and our planet, you can learn to avoid toxic hardware, software and media in your digital life, Can we build equitable, sustainable systems that serve the people? Or are we sliding inevitably into a dystopia? Is a dehumanising dependency on gadgets and technological monopolies necessary? Or can we reclaim a distributed Internet and information age like the one we were promised? Why are privacy, dignity and personal cyber-security in such an awful state today? Digital Vegan cites the writings of tech minimalists and social media sceptics including Cal Newport, Zeynep Tufekci, Nicholas Carr, Jaron Lanier and Nir Eyal; academic writers like Neil Postman, Jacques Ellul and Lewis Mumford, and thinkers from Aristotle to Freud, Nietzsche and Heidegger whose commentary on technology is scintillating, vital, and completely forgotten today.
