The rapid growth of our digital world has brought huge advantages - access to information anywhere, at any time, and the ability to communicate with colleagues, family and friends around the globe in real-time. But in other ways, the same techlogy has also disconnected us. Computers risk becoming less of a productivity tool and more like information firehoses, drowning us in a deluge of data that can keep us from doing meaningful, real work. The devices in our hands connect us like never before, but they vie for our attention to the point where they are beginning to disconnect us from the real world. In this book, Dave Coplin, Chief Envisioning Officer at Microsoft UK, argues that right w it feels like the machines are taking over but if we stop thinking about the digital deluge as a problem and instead see it as an incredible opportunity we will be able to redress the balance. Techlogy offers our society so much but it is up to us, the humans, to rise to that potential.
Dave Coplin is the Chief Envisioning Officer for Microsoft UK and an established thought leader in the UK. He has worked across a wide range of industries and customers, providing strategic advice and guidance around the intersection of a modern society and technology both inside and outside of the world of work. Dave is passionate about turning the base metal of technology into valuable assets that affect the way we live, work and play and, in so doing, move the focus from the technology itself to the outcome it enables. His previous book, Business Reimagined, provided individuals and organisations with a view of a new working environment based on collaborative and flexible working and on technology that, used correctly, liberates rather than constrains. Dave has contributed to a range of media articles, conferences and forums all relating to the goal of making technology less visible and more valuable in our daily lives.
