Vincent F. Hendricks & Pelle G. Hansen
The information society is upon us. New technologies have given us back-pocket libraries, online discussion forums, blogs, crowd-based opinion aggregators, social media and breaking news wherever, whenever. But are we more enlightened and rational because of it?
With points of departure in philosophy, logic, social psychology, economics and choice and game theory, Infostorms shows how information may be used to improve the quality of personal decision and group thinking but also warns against the informational pitfalls which modern information technology may amplify, from science to reality culture and from cyberbullying to what it really is, that makes you buy a book like this.
