When I heard Jaron Lanier speak about his book I was interested in learning about his take our networked information economy So it was good to finally finish the book and understand his view that as things are currently progressing what he terms Siren Servers such as Google Facebook will own the future That is unless proposals such as his help us move to an alternative future where data ownership and costs are higher and yet there are of us who have a piece of the action as part of a middle class that can grow and prosperSegments that stood out or were most memorable for me included Lanier s description of Siren Server effects his map out and summaries of nine dismal humors of futurism and one hopeful one based on Ted Nelson s earlier work on two way links I also really appreciated the graph page 209 that visually represents the hypothesis of the book that the degree of democracyparticipation will rise as the cost of information increases Of particular interest to me were his comments on how we could earn and spend as well as barriers and leadership scenarios for transitioning to humanistic arrangementsAs others have indicated this book is dense covers much ground and it can be challenging for a reader to connect all the various pieces However there are nuggets at every turn and hanging in or returning to the text is worth it to get the insights and concerns from this tech insider While his alternative future may not be the one hopefully will heed his cautions and consider ways to promote middle class growth as the networked information economy continues to advance Perhaps like Odysseus we will be able to overcome the dangerous aspects of the Sirens to further progress in the human journey
