"Radical Technologies: The Design of Everyday Life"
It is with the greatest pleasure that I share with you Radical Technologies, the book referred to here, and for so much of which I'm indebted to conversations that have happened here.

It's a broad overview of the smartphone, augmented reality, digital fabrication technologies like 3D printing, Bitcoin and the blockchain, and finally the sprawling complex of linked ideas around machine learning, automation and artificial intelligence, the political economy associated with them and all the ways in which they condition our experience of everyday life.

It's just received a very kind notice in the Guardian, and I hope you enjoy it, too.

If I could "love" that comment, I would, naturally. Thank you!

UPDATE: Okay I'm through the introduction and a big chunk of the first chapter. I can already tell I'm going to be yelling about this book for years.

ANOTHER UPDATE: Four chapters in. I'm fucked up in the best possible way.
