Remember how I said I was starting to write a book? Well anyway – I said I was going to write a book. Even did a bit of research and mapped out a structure for that book. It’s about how human beings have changed in response to shifts in the media environment.
Interesting stuff – and there’s even a pop video to go with it:
There is a point to all this. However… I’m not going to talk about it much here, because it seems such a separate thing at the moment from what I’ve been talking about on this, my personal blog… and I kind of think it’s a big enough project to warrant its own blog.
So I gave it a working title: Now We Are Different… and if you click on that title, it’ll take you to the blog of the book.
Very early days now, and it will probably end up getting its own hosting and everything, but for the moment, that’s where my thinking about that stuff will go. So if you’re not interested in the evolution of the human species under the effects of digitalisation, then you’re probably pretty safe here. At least – as safe as you ever were before I had this book notion.
