Andrew Keen has been described as 'the Christopher Hitchens of the internet'. His provocative new book describes his urgent worldwide search for ways in which humanity can protect itself from the dark side of the digital future.
In How to Fix the Future, Andrew Keen combines his experiences in Silicon Valley with extensive interviews and analysis to identify the strategies we need in order to tackle the huge challenges of this digital century.
This ground-breaking book is the result of extensive travels around the world, from India to Estonia, Germany to Singapore. He examines the best (and worst) practices in five key areas - competition, innovation, oversight, self-regulation and social responsibility - and concludes by examining whether we are seeing the beginning of the end of the America-centric digital world. Throughout he shows that the stakes could not be higher: how can we remain human in an age of digital machines?
Andrew Keen is an author, broadcaster, speaker and entrepreneur and one of the world's best-known and controversial commentators on the digital revolution. He is the executive director of the Silicon Valley salon FutureCast, a columnist for GQ magazine and the author of three acclaimed and prescient books: The Internet Is Not the Answer, Digital Vertigo and The Cult of the Amateur.
