Simply Living Book Club Discussion: TEAM Human by Douglas Rushkoff

June 9 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

Free

 

Our Spring book selection is Team Human, by Douglas Rushkoff.
“A provocative, exciting, and important rallying cry to reassert our human spirit of community and teamwork.”
―Walter Isaacson.
For background, check out the author’s TED Talk, which provides an excellent introduction to his work.
The text below if from the TED Talk Youtube site:

Humans are no longer valued for our creativity, says media theorist Douglas Rushkoff — in a world dominated by digital technology, we’re now just valued for our data. In a passionate talk, Rushkoff urges us to stop using technology to optimize people for the market and start using it to build a future centered on our pre-digital values of connection, creativity and respect. “Join ‘Team Human.’ Find the others,” he says. “Together let’s make the future that we always wanted.” Watch the talk here:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Is1YUQVYkvY

Optional vegan buffet from 5 – 6 pm. The discussion is free but donations are welcome if you stay for the buffet.
