Understanding digitalisation to avoid being vaporized
Robert Tercek invites us on a journey of discovery into the depths of our reality: a magic world defined by software in which we are used to having all the information, all the time, instantly and anywhere. The birth of the internet has facilitated the liberation of information from the physical prison in which it was being held, into the form of ethereal files. The advent and diffusion of smartphones ensures that all the knowledge in the world is available to anyone, anywhere at any time. The vaporization of our society is forcing us to take on a difficult challenge: to do more and to do better, by using software to help reduce wasteful use of natural resources and to minimise our harmful impact on the planet.
