High Tech High Touch: Technology and Our Accelerated Search for Meaning
Nicholas Brealey Publishing, 2001 - Social Science - 274 pages
The one great megatrend of the new millennium. In this important and timely book encompassing the key trends of our time, John Naisbitt, the world's foremost social forecaster and bestselling author, takes us on a compelling and kaleidoscopic tour of our contemporary 'technology immersion' and our accelerated search for meaning. High Tech/High Touch shows how we need to understand technology through a human lens - to comprehend life-science technologies through theology, consumer technology through high-touch time, science of the body through art. Exploring everything from the effect of consumer and genetic technologies (the most influential of all technologies to come) to the problems that parents face contending with violent electronic games, the authors' insights span science, religion, commerce, communications, art, leisure and many other areas of our daily lives.
