The practical applications of this new medium—not least among them the ability to borrow money, invest in the stock market, or buy a new home—have made it a force unequaled in scope or impact in our daily lives. But the luxuries of the connected age have taken on a momentum all of their own, ultimately becoming the root cause of the recent financial meltdown from which the world is now still struggling to recover.
Davidow meticulously and counter-intuitively anatomizes how being overconnected tends to create systems of positive feedback that have largely negative consequences.
Original, commonsensical and historically informed, Overconnected identifies problems we live with that are now so large, omnipresent and part of our daily lives that few people have noticed them.
