After digging my car out of the snow last night, I began reading Jaron Lanier’s You Are Not a Gadget. I’m only halfway through the first chapter, but it has already shifted how I view the internet and the risks and possibilities inherent in collective computing and digital information exchange. Once I’m done the book, I’m sure I’ll have some thoughts to share on the implications for photography. As is, the book has already clarified my distaste for Facebook–though I’m not sure I can quit it entirely.
