Douglas Rushkoff is a media analyst, author, and documentarian. [from What We Believe But Cannot Prove (2006)]



I really wanted to like this book. I'm all for being on "team human" and being the master of our digital world (not the other way around). But ... this book felt more like an angry old man groaning about how terrible those computer-machines are.

Don't get me wrong, there are some good points in here and several concepts and ideas I highlighted to remember. But the weight of "here's why everything is terrible" to "here's what we can do about it" was so off-balance it made it unenjoyable to read.… (mais)

I like Douglas Rushkoff's ideas around civilization and human-ness. I agree with him in general about the isolating effects of the way we "connect" today. What I didn't love about the book is that so many of his 100 "statements" just say things as if they're obviously true. I wasn't always so sure. I also think I could have gotten as much out of watching a few more of his videos on YouTube.

La élite tecnológica tiene un plan para sobrevivir al apocalipsis: dejarnos a todos atrás. Cinco misteriosos multimillonarios convocaron al teórico Douglas Rushkoff a un resort desértico para una charla privada. ¿El tema? Cómo sobrevivir al «evento»: la catástrofe social que saben que se avecina. Rushkoff llegó a la conclusión de que estos hombres estaban bajo la influencia de «la Mentalidad» («The Mindset»), una certeza al estilo de Silicon Valley de que ellos y su cohorte pueden romper las leyes de la física, la economía y la moral para escapar de un desastre de su propia creación, siempre y cuando tengan suficiente dinero y la tecnología adecuada. Rushkoff rastrea los orígenes de la Mentalidad en la ciencia y la tecnología hasta su expresión actual en las misiones a Marte, los búnkeres insulares, el futurismo de la inteligencia artificial y el metaverso. A través de personajes fascinantes, explica por qué quienes tienen más poder para cambiar nuestra trayectoria actual no tienen interés en hacerlo, y nos muestra cómo trascender el paisaje creado por la Mentalidad —un mundo vivo con algoritmos e inteligencias que recompensan activamente nuestras tendencias más egoístas— y redescubrir la comunidad, la ayuda mutua y la interdependencia humana.… (mais)
