The New York Times has published an article that was adapted from the book I Live in the Future & Hereâ€™s How It Works by Nick Bilton, the lead writer for The New York Times technology blog Bits. The book, to be published on Tuesday by Crown Business, examines the impact of technology on our lives.
“Now, we are always in the center of the map, and itâ€™s a very powerful place to be.
When people want to know how the media business will deal with the Internet, the best way to begin to understand the sweeping changes is to recognize that the consumer of entertainment and information is now in the center. That center changes everything. It changes your concept of space, time and location. It changes your sense of community. It changes the way you view the information, news and data coming directly to you.
Now you are the starting point. Now the digital world follows you, not the other way around.”
