Image of Smart Mobs Este es otro libro del ese enorme montón que me prestaron a finales de verano y que os llevo mostrando a cuenta gotas desde hace más de un mes… Realmente con este libro tengo la sensación de que la revolución de la que está hablando tal vez ya ha comenzado y esta madurando en estos momentos. La tecnología móvil ha evolucionado mucho desde el principio de la década, y aunque aquí vayamos con algo de retraso con respecto a otras zonas del planeta, la verdad es que cada día se convierte en algo imprescindible en nuestras relaciones sociales. Y no solamente para hablar con otras personas, sino para acceder a internet y comunicarse a través de redes sociales con una gran cantidad de gente desde cualquier punto del planeta…

Smart Mobs

De la contraportada

“Rheingold put a label to the social revolution that will define this decade. Smart Mobs describes how we will intereact with each other, and with the new electronic companions invading our lives. This is an extraordinarily important book, rich in implications for everyone from teens and CEOs, to parents and Pentagon generals.”

Paul Saffo, Director, Institute for the Future.

“To track where technology bends society, I’ve learned to follow Howard Rheingold. He always leads a grand tour, and this time is no different. In this book, he takes you to the edge of the global brain as made ral by thumb tribes and mobile networks. You don’t wat to leave.”

Kevin Kelly, Editor-at-Large, Wired

“Rheingold has thought deeply about the way our technologies enhance and even create new bonds between human beings. From techno-animism and hyper-coordination, to smartifacts and social networks, this insightful and engaging guided tour through the next communications renaissance is at turns inspiring, frightening, but always fascinating. Smart Mobs is Rheingold’s greatest achievement.

Douglas Rushkoff author of Coercion, Media Virus, and Nothing Sacred, Professor, New York University’ Interactive Telecommunications Program.

“Howard Rheingold has always been about ten years ahead of the rest of us, but Smart Mobs may be his most visionary book yet. Anyone interested in the future of technology and society will find this book fascinating reading.”

Steven Johnson, author of Emergence and Interface Culture

Smart Mobs is hot on the trail of technology tha is hot-wiring social networks around the world, with unexpected and fascinating implications for al of us.”

David Weinberger, author of Small Pieces Loosely Joined and co-author of The Cluetrain Manifesto

“I congratulate Howard Rheingold on his very thorough summary of one of the greatest transformations of human society – perhaps even more profound that the development of writing.”

Sir Arthur C. Clarke
