This is Part 1 of a book review of "Life After Google" by George Gilder.
No other book I've recently read has been so insightful about the current state of today's information technology and its potential future as envisioned by the author.
There is so much useful information in this book that I have felt the need to break up this book review in parts. It also makes sense to break up the book review in parts because it covers a wide range of topics.
As soon as I started reading this book, I immediately knew that I was holding a book that has a lot of significance to anyone involved with or interested in information technology.
Its message is too late for me since I am retired from my career in information technology. I highly recommend the book to the young generation building the systems and networks of the future, including and especially the Minds team.
Older generations like me can still learn a lot from reading the book. One can still train old dogs with new tricks.
On a deeper level, the World of Google -- its interfaces, its images, its videos, its icons, its philosophy -- is 2D. Google is not just a company but a system of the world. And the Internet is cracking under the weight of this ideology. Its devotees uphold the flat-universe theory of materialism: the sufficiency of deterministic chemistry and mathematics.
And that's just from the Prologue.
