I am “almost” finished reading Rushkoff’s book “Program or Be Programmed: Ten Commands for a Digital Age” (one more chapter to go). Douglas Rushkoff is an interesting writer and thinker. He often explores how we use technology, and how we can sometimes be “used” by technology.
I am of a similar age of Mr. Rushkoff and learned BASIC programming around the time he started to learn programming. Having traveled a similar journey, from the “command line” to the GUI (Graphical User Interface), I can often relate to Mr. Rushkoff’s insights. I am looking forward to viewing this FRONTLINE documentary, and hope you are able to view it on cable TV or via streaming video.
Feel free to comment here if you have viewed the documentary.
