The Glass Cage
Filed under The Glass Cage
Congrats, Nick! Looking forward to it.
Any teasers as to subject matter?
“Nicholas Carr’s THE GLASS CAGE, the follow-up to The Big Switch and The Shallows, lively, lucid, and unsettling examination of what it means to be human …”
And where is the rest?
On the one hand, ‘The Glass Cage’ reminds me of how we live our lives more publicly now, through the internet. On the other hand, there’s this quote from an interview: “…it’s another examination of technology and its human effects. It will be a bit more about business, I think, than my last book, ‘The Shallows,’ was. Not the IT side of things, but more about talent and people and how they do their jobs.”
Nick – Will your Epipheo friends produce a cartoon edition soon? For those of us who, err, may no longer have the attention span needed to finish a book. You know it makes sense. :-)
Or How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Net.
Cool. Looking forward. Will purchase on first day.
Really looking forward to it Nick.
You’re one of the best writers out there.
What would Max Weber say?
“To-day the spirit of religious asceticism—whether ﬁnally, who knows?—has escaped from the cage. But victorious capitalism, since it rests on mechanical
foundations, needs its support no longer.”
