Franklin Foer reveals the existential threat posed by big tech, and in his brilliant polemic gives us the toolkit to fight their pervasive influence.

Over the past few decades there has been a revolution in terms of who controls knowledge and information. This rapid change has imperiled the way we think. Without pausing to consider the cost, the world has rushed to embrace the products and services of four titanic corporations. We shop with Amazon; socialize on Facebook; turn to Apple for entertainment; and rely on Google for information. These firms sell their efficiency and purport to make the world a better place, but what they have done instead is to enable an intoxicating level of daily convenience. As these companies have expanded, marketing themselves as champions of individuality and pluralism, their algorithms have pressed us into conformity and laid waste to privacy. They have produced an unstable and narrow culture of misinformation, and put us on a path to a world without private contemplation, autonomous thought, or solitary introspection–a world without mind. In order to restore our inner lives, we must avoid being coopted by these gigantic companies, and understand the ideas that underpin their success.

Elegantly tracing the intellectual history of computer science–from Descartes and the enlightenment to Alan Turing to Stuart Brand and the hippie origins of today’s Silicon Valley–Foer exposes the dark underpinnings of our most idealistic dreams for technology. The corporate ambitions of Google, Facebook, Apple, and Amazon, he argues, are trampling longstanding liberal values, especially intellectual property and privacy. This is a nascent stage in the total automation and homogenization of social, political, and intellectual life. By reclaiming our private authority over how we intellectually engage with the world, we have the power to stem the tide.

At stake is nothing less than who we are, and what we will become. There have been monopolists in the past but today’s corporate giants have far more nefarious aims. They’re monopolists who want access to every facet of our identities and influence over every corner of our decision-making. Until now few have grasped the sheer scale of the threat. Foer explains not just the looming existential crisis but the imperative of resistance.

书籍中文名:无意识世界:大技术的生存威胁——Franklin Foer

由Franklin Foer阅读Marc Cashman格式:MP3比特率:64 kbps未删节

富兰克林·福尔揭示了大科技带来的生存威胁,在他的精彩论战中,他向我们提供了对抗其普遍影响的工具。

在过去的几十年里,控制知识和信息的人发生了一场革命。这种迅速的变化危及了我们的思维方式。在不考虑成本的情况下,全世界都争先恐后地接受了四家泰坦尼克公司的产品和服务。我们和亚马逊一起购物,在脸谱网上社交,转向苹果娱乐,并依靠谷歌获取信息。这些公司为了让世界变得更美好而卖出自己的效率和口号,但他们所做的却只是为了达到令人陶醉的日常便利程度。随着这些公司不断扩大,他们把自己推销为个性和多元化的拥护者,他们的算法迫使我们遵从,并浪费了隐私。他们产生了一种不稳定和狭隘的误解文化,使我们走上了一条通往一个没有私人沉思、自主思想或独自反思的世界的道路——一个没有思想的世界。为了恢复我们的内心生活,我们必须避免被这些大公司牵连,并且理解那些支撑他们成功的想法。

从笛卡尔到艾伦·图灵到斯图尔特·布兰德,再到今天的硅谷嬉皮士的起源,优雅地追溯计算机科学的思想史,福尔揭示了我们最理想化的技术梦想的黑暗基础。他认为,谷歌、Facebook、苹果和亚马逊的企业野心正在践踏长期存在的自由价值观,尤其是知识产权和隐私。这是社会、政治和精神生活的全面自动化和均质化的萌芽阶段。通过收回我们的私人权威,来了解我们如何与世界进行智力交流,我们有能力阻止潮流。

危在旦夕的是我们是谁,我们将成为什么样的人。过去有垄断企业,但今天的企业巨头有着更为邪恶的目标。他们是想进入我们身份的各个方面的垄断者,影响我们决策的每一个角落。到现在为止,很少有人掌握威胁的绝对规模。Foer不仅解释了迫在眉睫的存在主义危机,还有抗争的必要性。
