About this book
The worldwide IT future scholar Nicco Mele considered the properties of the power of the digital generation through a social criticism on politics, economics, society, and culture. His solid analysis and abundant case presentation of the ‘paradox of chance and risk’ brought by the frightfully rapid technological advances.
He passionately discusses how the radical connectivity of the digital generation, or the incredible power to send an enormous amount of data endlessly to anywhere in the world, is rapidly shaking the structure of the traditionally large powers, and how it completely changes society by giving a new generation that has broken free of the basic system power in all areas such as politics, industries, army, entertainment, media, and education. This book plants a groundbreaking, absolute but level-headed understanding about the groundbreaking technology that has taken us over as a double-edged sword.
He also put forth that in no matter what kind of groundbreaking technology it is, the process of destroying an enormous power should not include the damage of the value of democracy (limited government, constitution, justified law processes, free market, freedom of religion, speech, press, and assembly, etc). He suggests the building of a new organ and mechanism that fits the ‘Generation of the new Goliath’.
