9781931836227: Islands in the Clickstream: Reflections on Life in a Virtual World

CNN called Richard Thieme "a member of the cyber avant-garde". Digital Delirium named him "one of the most creative minds of the digital generation". Now Richard Thieme's wisdom on the social and cultural dimensions of technology is available in a single volume. "Islands in the Clickstream" ranges beyond the impact of technology to spirituality, psychological insight, and social commentary. Now that people are used to living in virtual worlds and move easily between online and offline worlds, they want to connect that experience to the deeper issues of our lives, including spiritual issues. Some examples include "Dreams Engineers Have", "The Crazy Lady on the Treadmill", and "Whistleblowers and Team Players". These essays raise serious questions for thoughtful readers. They have attracted favorable commentary from around the world and a fanatic, almost rabid fan base.

* This author has become an extremely popular and highly visible talking head. He is a rare "personality" in the otherwise bland world of technology commentators.

* The book leverages the loyalty of his audience in the same way Bill O'Reilly's "The O'Reilly Factor" and Al Franken's "Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them" do.

* The book is an easy read intended to provoke thought, discussion and disagreement.

About the Author:

Richard Thieme is one of the most visible commentators on technology and society, appearing often on CNN radio, TechTV, and various other national media outlets. He is also in great demand as a professional speaker, delivering his Human Dimension of Technology talk to over 50,000 live audience members each year. Islands in the Clickstream is a single volume "best of Richard Thieme." Richard is a business consultant, writer, and professional speaker focused on the impact of computer technology on organizations, societies, and one’s own self. Richard’s columns convey simple wisdoms in an otherwise complicated industry, exploring topics from innovation to evolution, modernization to love. Islands in the Clickstream portrays the intricate relationship between man and machine, drawing on Thieme’s experiences as an Episcopalian priest, a father, a professional speaker, a traveler, and a man to convey his message of "living on the edge."
