In this sharp and witty book, long-time Silicon Valley observer and author Andrew Keen argues that, on balance, the Internet has had a disastrous impact on all our lives. By tracing the history of the Internet, from its founding in the 1960s to the creation of the World Wide Web in 1989, through the waves of start-ups and the rise of the big data companies to the increasing attempts to monetize almost every human activity, Keen shows how the Web has had a deeply negative effect on our culture, economy and society. Informed by Keen's own research and interviews, as well as the work of other writers, reporters and academics, The Internet is Not the Answer is an urgent investigation into the tech world - from the threat to privacy posed by social media and online surveillance by government agencies, to the impact of the Internet on unemployment and economic inequality. Keen concludes by outlining the changes that he believes must be made, before it's too late. If we do nothing, he warns, this new technology and the companies that control it will continue to impoverish us all.

Hasta nuestros días, no hemos encontrado una síntesis completa y exhaustiva que abarque elconjunto de factores que conducen a la red tal y como se encuentra en el momento actual aunando todas lasperspectivas sobre la materia. Tal es el objetivo del presente trabajo, que saca partido de la propia experienciadel que escribe aunando los terrenos propios de la explicación informática de fenómenos recientes, elperiodismo actual en la red y el análisis histórico de los procesos que confluyen en la consecución de laconfiguración actual de internet y su influencia en el mundo actual.?Tomando como propio el término acuñado por el físico Glen Mann, para el estudio de sistemas complejos,realizamos nuestra aproximación en una obra dividida en cuatro grandes bloques; desde la necesaria puesta encontexto del bloque primero, en el que se detallan los principales hitos en la gestación de la red, pasando por unsegundo bloque dedicado a la creciente influencia económica de internet y su paralelo con los cambioseconómicos del último tercio del siglo XX y comienzos del XXI; un tercer bloque dedicado a la crecienteinfluencia de movimientos, empresas y escenarios surgidos directamente en la red, hasta un final en el queanalizamos los elementos de conflicto que han ido superficiando. Así, a lo largo de la obra, trataremos delSoftware Libre, de los nuevos conceptos de acceso a la cultura, la piratería y las patentes, de las grandesfiltraciones de Wikileaks o Edvard Snowden respecto al espionaje, de la delincuencia en la red, la monedavirtual y el terrorismo, la censura y las nuevas formas de organizarse, con la red como elemento vertebral, delBig Data y la “nueva economía”.Sobre Internet y la sociedad de la Información se han creado muchos falsos mitos. Una de las tareas principalesque nos hemos fijado en el presente trabajo es el de contrastar a la luz de datos objetivos los fenómenos mássignificativos que han surgido en torno a la red. La realidad de la creación y evolución de internet ha sidosuficientemente compleja y coral como para que ninguno de sus elementos más destacados pueda arrogarsesu creación. Precisamente el contraste y disputa entre una variedad de elementos, entre los que desatacan,gobiernos, empresas, centros de investigación y hackers en diverso grado es uno de los principales rasgos quedefinen a una red creada mediante el agregado de diversas capas en las que las constante tensión entreelementos es uno de sus principales rasgos definitorios.La historia de Internet es la historia de un conflicto entre intereses contrapuestos, entre propuestas enfrentadassin resolución. En este conflicto, derechos y libertades, junto con modelos de negocio, la cultura y su acceso yel propio concepto democrático son la avanzada del conjunto de nuestra propia sociedad enfrentada a uncambio de paradigma en el que la red se conforma como uno de los ejes principales.

In this ground-breaking and compelling book, Nicholas Carr argues that not since Gutenberg invented printing has humanity been exposed to such a mind-altering technology. The Shallows draws on the latest research to show that the Net is literally re-wiring our brains inducing only superficial understanding. As a consequence there are profound changes in the way we live and communicate, remember and socialise - even in our very conception of ourselves. By moving from the depths of thought to the shallows of distraction, the web, it seems, is actually fostering ignorance. The Shallows is not a manifesto for luddites, nor does it seek to turn back the clock. Rather it is a revelatory reminder of how far the Internet has become enmeshed in our daily existence and is affecting the way we think. This landmark book compels us all to look anew at our dependence on this all-pervasive technology.
