Instead of asking no matter if the net is making us silly, Howard Rheingold turns that question round and asks how designing and utilizing electronic media mindfully can make us smarter. What if people might construct instruments that leverage our skill to imagine, speak, and cooperate? people invented social studying, speech, writing, alphabets, printing, desktops, and the net, this means that we should always be systematically directing the evolution of highbrow augmentation.
Mind Amplifier: Can Our electronic instruments Make Us Smarter? examines the origins of electronic mind-extending instruments, after which lays out the principles for his or her destiny. Rheingold proposes an utilized, interdisciplinary technological know-how of brain amplification. He additionally unveils a brand new protocol for constructing techno-cognitive-social applied sciences that include empathy, mindfulness, and compassion — parts missing from current electronic mind-tools.
