Focusing on the impact of computers on humans, Talking Back to the Machine features essays on how computers will affect the ways we live, learn, teach, communicate, and relate to each other in the coming decades. Outstanding contemporary thinkers describe the myriad ways, both good and bad, in which our lives will be altered by information technology, and what we can do to influence these changes. Talking Back to the Machine is a must-read for anyone who is interested in technology and society.
