Alien Technology explores the consequences of technological alienation on individuals and communities in the modern times. The world is already witnessing situations in which those who are alienated from technologies are at the mercy of those who are "in the know". This may even lead to the creation of a new kind of class system based on technology literacy.

This book explores complex technologies, presents ways of identifying the levels of alienation, and suggests remedies for overcoming the alienation and becoming better and empowered users of technology. Replete with examples and written in lucid language, its humorous, tongue-in-cheek style will engage the reader.
