The Four Dimensional Human Ways of Being in the Digital World

A constellation of everyday digital phenomena is rewiring our inner lives argues Laurence Scott We are increasingly coaxed from the third dimensional containment of our pre digital selves into a wonderful and eerie fourth dimension a world of ceaseless communication instant information and global connectionOur portals to this new world have been wedged open and. The Four Dimensional Human invites us to think about how digitization has changed our lives It s not a book about dooms day warnings of how technology will ruin us but rather gently nudges us to think about what it means to be connected to the cloud at all times What does it mean for our sense of a body when we are constantly bodiless on the net What meanings do space and place have when I can be where you are with the click of a button or a swipe on a screenScott s writing style combines a strong background in literature with metaphorical language and anecdotes into a narrative that is engaging witty and recognizable It s not an academic work nor is it in my opinion truly a work of popular non fiction It s straddled somewhere in between in a comfortable and confident way

    This is a difficult book to write about and very hard to describe It's basically a study of how 'networked life' ie 247 connection to the internet and social media and the ability to constantly communicate across almost all physical borders has transformed the human experience and what that means for us But it's a sprawlin
