From the Back Cover:

Digital Universe traces the evolution of digital information and communication tools used worldwide, from Morse’s telegraph to the emergence of mobile phones as personal computers, and their seismic effects on society. Critical perspectives of the diffusion of these technologies are explored, including the “dark side” of the Internet; privacy, piracy, censorship and the digital divide, as well as the advent of online games, and virtual and augmented realities.

This illuminating text introduces readers to important inventors, scientists, artists, and critics, offering a unique blend of technology, its socio-cultural effects, its history, and the human face of invention and criticism. This is more than a how-to book, it is an empowering  tour of the digital universe offering critical observations and new perspectives on human communication and intelligence.

Seel is a professor in the Department of Journalism and Technical Communication at Colorado State University, where he teaches new communication technologies, video production, digital photography, and documentary film.
