Our Spring 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.
Not sure? Check out the author’s TED Talk, which provides an excellent introduction to his work. From the TED Talk you tube 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
