World Without Mind

The Existential Threat of Big Tech
By: Franklin Foer

Book Reivew

I read this over a year and a half ago, but it recently came to mind. It presents some worthwhile considerations in our new world of big Computer Tech Companies. I remember as a child many...many...many years ago hearing adults discussing the onset of Walmart and what that meant for the small, local stores. Today, Walmart is a part of yesterday's news and discussions, and Amazon, Facebook, Apple, etc. are a the big players that dominate the conversations today. Not as many years ago, I remember the anti-trust lawsuit against Microsoft. And, if you want to go way back, we can talk about AT&T.

But what about today's big tech companies?

Franklin Foer in "World without Mind" steps us through these considerations. He looks at why we don't read about anti-trust lawsuits with these companies. He also shares his own personal experience with what he calls "The Existential Threat of Big Tech Companies."

You don't have to be a tech nerd to appreciate what Franklin has to say. This is not a technincal book. You will need to be the type of person that likes to think about business, business practice, privacy, and capitalism and its counterparts.

Book Reviews

I am nuts about books. I read on all kinds of topics. I attempt to review each book I read for the sake of my own enrichment as well as conversation starters with others.

Pastoral Ministry

God has called me to be a pastor, and occasionally I have some pastoral thoughts I like to share.

You never know what you will find in an attic! Usually there is a hodgepodge of things buried under dust.
