Team Human

ebook

Porchlight's Management and Workplace Culture Book of The Year

"[A] thoroughly fascinating exploration of the long interplay between power and the technologies of communication." —Adam Frank, NPR

Team Human is a fiery distillation of preeminent digital theorist Douglas Rushkoff's most urgent thoughts on civilization, technology, and human nature. In one hundred concise statements, he argues that we are essentially social creatures who achieve our greatest aspirations when we work together?not as individuals. Yet today, an antihuman ethos has overtaken our society, undermining our ability to connect. Technologies that were meant to foster cooperation?from currency to computers?too often are used to exploit and divide us. If we are to adapt and survive these destructive forces, we must recognize that being human is a team sport. Rushkoff inspires us to find the others who understand this fundamental truth and reassert our humanity?together.
