Present Shock


Former Media Studies Faculty Douglas Rushkoff has published a new book: Present Shock: When Everything Happens Now.

From the author:

Present Shock seeks to describe and explore life and work in a very new temporal landscape – one defined largely by always-on digital technologies. But it’s also about what it means to live in an era when the past and future seem to have collapsed into the present. How do we orient ourselves without the notions of progress, growth, or a future? How do we follow goals, convey values, build businesses, and even create movements in a world that only functions in real time?
