Notes: The Future Does Not Compute takes readers on a wide-ranging tour of the dark side of the Internet and computer technology. The author challenges the assertions made by technology enthusiasts that computers expand creativity and community. Talbott contends that the computers are an outward expression of "the hidden and increasingly powerful machine within us." As computers become further enmeshed in our daily lives, we are pulled toward the habits of mind they support. How do we maintain that which is uniquely human in the face of computer technology that is taking over more and more human functions?
