About the Author
Ivo Quartiroli was a software programmer, a book publisher and book author in Italy. Involved both in information processing and consciousness processing through a spiritual path toward the truth, he writes about the intersection of technology, psychology, spirituality and society on his blog, at www.indranet.org and writes for Italian magazines about technology and society. Ivo Quartiroli is also the author of The Digitally Divided Self: Relinquishing our Awareness to the Internet. “It isn't easy to find an informed and critical look at the impact of digital media practices on human lives and minds. Ivo Quartiroli offers an informed critique based in both an understanding of technology and of human consciousness.” —Howard Rheingold “Aware of the profound and rapid psychological and social metamorphosis we are going through as we ‘go digital’ without paying attention, Ivo Quartiroli is telling us very precisely what we are gaining and what we are losing of the qualities and privileges that, glued as we are to one screen or another, we take for granted in our emotional, cognitive and spiritual life. This book is a wake-up call. Steve Jobs and Bill Gates should read it.” —Derrick de Kerckhove Intersecting media studies, psychology and spirituality, The Digitally Divided Self exposes the nature of the malleable mind and explores the religious and philosophical influences which leave it obsessed with the incessant flow of information. The Table of Contents, the introduction and the first chapter of The Digitally Divided Self are available at http://www.indranet.org/the-digitally-divided-self-table-of-contents-introduction-and-chapter-1/

Very powerful, everyone sharing why they are quitting/quitted facebook but lack of actual research about facebook being able to know all about you without an account and a few other things.
I surpised for this book because i feel some lost about my feelings and toughts for the things happens in facebook with this text i understand it we need to be more social in real life don forget the real problems also.
I thought the book was a very long pursuasive essay. I had little research and had a few instances of cursing and inapropriate content. I feel that there is definately a reason it was free.
