I just finished reading an article by Yuval Noah Harari at TheAtlantic.com. It was adapted from his book, 21 Lessons for the 21st Century, and it raises fascinating questions about where we are headed as technology becomes more and more powerful. While some of what he has to say sounds alarmist, he also raises a number of very timely questions and offers insightful analysis not only of the growth of technology, but of political trends that many have found disturbing.
I would like to thank my friend, Mary Fran Drake, for recommending the article and heartily pass on her recommendation to you.
If you would like to read the book (rather than just the article linked above), you can get it here: 21 Lessons for the 21st Century. It is also available in Spanish as 21 lecciones para el siglo XXI.
