The False Promises of the Digital Revolution: How Computers transform Education, Work, and International Development in Ways tha
Bowers warns that the growing dominance of digital culture is eroding the many human cultures that over thousands of years have evolved to live sustainably in particular habitats. When these have all been homogenized away, he says, the environment will no longer support humans, and computer scientists will be clueless. He discusses the cultural non-neutrality of the digital revolution and the deepening ecological crisis, the digital differences between community-centered and corporate capitalism, why cultures cannot be reduced to information and data, how the digital revolution contributes to the colonization of other cultures and increased the threat of terrorism, and making connections between education reforms and democratizing uses of digital technologies.
