About this product
- DescriptionDele Atanda's ground-breaking book examines the new cultural and social evolution that is driven by the power, opportunity and thirst for information afforded by the internet. Could techlogy be changing the fundamentals of human existence? Since the birth of the internet, humans have been empowered by their ability to connect with every corner of the globe, retrieve information in a heartbeat and expand their kwledge beyond all of their horizons. Causing drastic social-political changes, many experts believe the internet could be changing the very fundamentals of human existence. One such expert is Dele Atanda, author of 'The Digitterian Tsunami: Web 3.0 and the Rise of the NEO Citizen (Volume 1: The 21 Principles Driving The Evolution of The Internet)', a ground-breaking new book that shines a vital spotlight on how the internet is driving global change. Sypsis: The Arab Spring uprising, the electoral victories of President Obama, the emergence of new currencies such as Bitcoin and the rise of WikiLeaks and online activist groups like Anymous were all inevitable events driven by predictable social-cultural trends enabled by the Internet. Though originally written in 2009, the twenty-one key principles driving the evolution of the Internet identified in The Digitterian Tsunami have already proved themselves with social-political changes we have seen over the past few years. Atanda suggests that we are on the cusp of a new era of cultural revolution and social evolution driven by an unprecedented expansion of opportunity, kwledge, and empowered citizens. He suggests that the Internet is changing the ways in which we interact with each other and shape our societies, our selves and our environment as a whole and projects likely outcomes from these changes. The first volume in the series defines the 21 key principles driving the next wave of the Internet's evolution and describes the emergence of a new citizenry, New Earth Order or NEO Citizens, enabled by this phemen and how they will use the Digitterian Tsunami to further their objectives in the digital age. The Digitterian Tsunami is less a book on techlogy than a look at how techlogy is changing the fundamentals of our existence. It represents a new citizen-centric perspective on the digital revolution and differs significantly from the corporatochratic view of other writers on the subject. As the author explains, the book is applicable to an eclectic and far-reaching audience. It is a must-read for digital practitioners, strategists, policy makers, business managers, marketers, social activists, techlogists, academics, students, and citizens seeking to understand the currents underlying the Internet-driven changes in our world today, says Atanda, a rewned thought-leader on emerging digital culture. Continuing, The gradual onset of the internet's influence means many haven't consciously registered its effects on the fabrics of society, politics and the ecomy. Huge strides have been made, both forwards and backwards; this book examines each one in authoritative detail. Critics praise the author for releasing such a thought-provoking analysis; with many urging interested readers to purchase their copies as soon as possible.
