As many of you know, my book Data Dictatorships has just come out. I talked with some of you in this forum via private messages. And I’m grateful for the help… Special thanks to @aschrijver and @micheleminno
For the last year I’ve been banging my head against the wall trying to understand the complexity of our current situation with the technological disruption. And this book contains all the answers I have found along the way.
Forget about fake news, election interferences or being watched on the Internet. The reality is much more chaotic, complex and dreadful than that.
The truth is that data has become the raw materialization of power, and this is making dictatorships more efficient than ever before. Few dare to say it, but liberal democracy is likely going to die. (At least as we know it.)
But I believe if we start global conversations about this, maybe we can change things. And these conversations could start as small as a thread in this forum.
I hope you can find the time to check out the content of this book. And it would be great if we could start a threat talking about these threats we’re facing.
If you just want to grab a free copy, here’s the electronic version for free. I believe that the ideas discussed in this book are so important that I’m willing to give it away for free. So here’s the link–download it, share it, but please let’s start a conversation about this:
And of course, if you’d like the paperback version here it is. But again, you don’t have to buy it.
I hope you enjoy my small contribution to the world.
