Serendicritique is a polemic with dystopic tendencies, the rants and the artifacts from a year’s worth of monitoring various issues that seem to be important but were simplified beyond recognition or relatively ignored in the broader discussion. Reading between the lines — understanding media, technology, and related policy beyond the buzzwords. No conspiracy theories. · Social networks, walled gardens and the new gatekeepers · The perils of technocracy · The effects of groupthinking and bias in a social graph "filter bubble" · The surprising (re-)appearance of eugenics · The pretext of the UN's and the ITU's attempt to take over the Internet · The FUD campaign around Flame and Stuxnet, and the buzz around "cyberwar" · Mass shootings and mental health · The ethics of a "Project Glass" world · Isn't it time to drop the doping hypocrisy in sports? · Your perfect, absolute, "Singularity Utopia" is here, but different than you wished for · Aliens or God? The book may serve as a time capsule, preserving a snapshot of the state of the current society with conclusions that seem consequent today and consistent with past experiences.
