This ambitious, entertaining and sophisticated discussion improves upon author Evgeny Morozov’s earlier book, The Net Delusion, and features his astute take on history and an interdisciplinary embrace of human complexity. Morozov shows how those who worship technology and the “Internet” oversimplify the problems they think they are solving and, in the process, fail to honor the richness of an embodied, contextualized world. getAbstract recommends Morozov’s insights to futurists, technology enthusiasts and readers seeking a nuanced understanding of how the Internet is and is not changing the world.
In this summary, you will learn
- What technological “solutionism” is,
- How solutionism interweaves with “Internet” worship and
- Why this worldview is simplistic and dangerous.

Comment on this summary
2 years agoBooks like this are essential to provide balance and perspective and mitigate the inevitable cheerleading that is endemic in technology these days.
5 years agoVery interesting points to think about and comprehend but the content is more devil's advocate then problem resolution.
