   You Are Not a Gadget – A Manifesto. From the visionary computer scientist, composer, and visual artist who coined the term “Virtual Reality,” comes an urgent manifesto about the present and future of the World Wide Web and how it is shaping our culture.
   In You Are Not a Gadget – A Manifesto Jaron Lanier, one of TIME magazine’s “100 most influential people of 2010,” discusses the technical and cultural problems that can grow out of poorly considered digital design and warns that our financial markets and sites like Wikipedia, Facebook and Twitter are elevating the “wisdom” of mobs and computer algorithms over the intelligence and judgment of individuals.
   “Lucid, powerful and persuasive. [You Are Not a Gadget ] is necessary reading for anyone interested in how the Web and the software we use every day are reshaping culture and the marketplace.” The New York Times
