Impact of New Media and Technology on Individuals / Peace Prize

Jaron Lanier won the Book Trade Peace Prize in Frankfurt.  He has some interesting cautionary comments about the digital age without being reactionary.  I would like to take a look at him.

While saying that technology still gives him great joy, we need to be aware of the downsides.  There is a severe problem with important losses to security and independence of the individual.

Some of his books are "You are not a Gadget" and "Who owns the future?"
