Overview

In Killer Tech and the Drive to Save Humanity, Mark Stross presents a gripping exploration of our entanglement with technology in a world where digital platforms increasingly dictate our lives. With thought-provoking insights and real-life anecdotes, Mark unveils the hidden costs of our digital addiction and challenges readers to reconsider their relationship with technology.

The message is clear: "If you're not paying for the product, you are the product." Mark sheds light on how tech giants, corporations, and algorithms categorize and manipulate us, turning us into "users" and stripping away our humanity. But he doesn't just point out the problems; he provides a road map for taking back control.

As the pace of technological change accelerates, Mark offers guardrails to help us navigate this uncertain new world. Killer Tech goes beyond the obvious and delves into the fascinating rise of virtual worlds, NFTs, deepfakes, UFOs, and the blurry line between the real and the virtual. He challenges us to consider a digital bill of rights and the need to take charge of our data and online personas.

Killer Tech is a wake-up call, a call to action, and a promise of empowerment. It is your guide to making informed choices, reshaping your digital destiny, and reclaiming your humanity.
