From one of the most controversial personalities in the high-tech world comes this rare critique of the narcissism, ignorance and anti-communitarianism of the digital elite and their culture. Until now, the lofty pronouncements of the high-tech gurus and society's obsession with them have seldom been questioned. Sub-titled 'A Critical Romp Through the Terribly Libertarian World of High-Tech', CYBERSELFISH sets the record straight, examining such issues as the glaring lack of philanthropy among high-tech companies; the anti-liberal arts bias, which dismisses most art and literature created before the computer revolution; and the culture's misogyny. Forthright, informed and thought-provoking, CYBERSELFISH is a fascinating look at the byways and sliproads of the information superhighway.
