Sue Halpern on People and Machines

Sue Halpern has a review essay in the new issue of the New York Review of Books titled “Mind Control & the Internet, in which she reviews You Are Not a Gadget, by Jaron Lanier, The Filter Bubble, by Eli Parser, and World Wide Mind: The Coming Integration of Humanity, Machines, and the Internet, by Michael Chorost. These books on somewhat disparate aspects of our use of computers are linked in Halpern’s focus on the way that humanity is integrating itself with its digital machines.
