'As bold and provocative look at the future of storytelling. It's about the virtues of video games, the science of cocktail parties, and the new business model of journalism.

Read this book if you want to get your message right.'---Jonah Lehrer, author of the New York Times bestseller How we Decide' 'Nick Bilton has written a rollicking, upbeat guide to the digital world---a peek into our near future, where news, storytelling, and even human identity are transformed. It's a fascinating book from a man who has helped pilot the New York Times into a new age of online journalism. If you're wondering---or worried---about the future of media, this is your road map.'---Clive Thompson, Wired magazine columnist and contributing editor' 'Bilton doesn't just live in the future, he also understands the past.
