Plugged: How Hyperconnectivity and The Beam Changed How We Think
Are We Who We Were?
Throughout the 21st Century, our world (at least for those of us inside the NAU) has become increasingly connected. So much so that we really are now thinking as a single fluid organism, changing not just how we live our daily lives, but who we are as a species. In Sterling Gibson's newest thoughtful exploration, one of the NAU's most renowned thinkers explores and illuminates how hyperconnectivity and The Beam have changed us forever.
Readers who love Plugged will also love The Beam:
In 2097, the world is as perfect as you want it to be.
Choose Enterprise and the government stays out of your way, leaving you free to sink or swim ”" no help for the drowning.
Choose Directorate and all are equal, fed, sheltered and entertained by the government, every need provided for, and every man another cog in society's machine.
Every six years during Shift, citizens decide who they are. Enterprise or Directorate, lives are lived inside the North American Union, walled off from the rest of the world and the Wild East beyond the shell, enhanced by incredible A.I., nanobots that monitor and support daily living, and The Beam: the network connecting every human in the NAU.
New powers are rising as emergent technology blooms from an unknown source, and threatens to shatter peace and throw the nation into chaos.
What does the future mean when our present is stretched and reality blurred?
