From Stone Age to Internet
by Lutz Jäncke
Is modern digital technology changing our social behavior, communication, and the way we see ourselves? How do we cope with the increasing flood of information pouring over us? Does this flood have an effect on our work and personal life?
Based on the premise that in the course of evolution humans have developed into social beings for whom communication with group members is of paramount importance, the author demonstrates how not only our communication but also our entire social behavior is suffering as a result of modern digital technology. In the truest sense of the word, we are being inundated with information that we are no longer able to manage. The volume and constant availability of interesting and attention- sapping news and information overload our brains. Are our brains capable of adapting to the modern internet world? Are we already overloaded? How will the future pan out?
