A NETWORK ORANGE
Logic and Responsibility in the Age of Computing
R. Crandall and M. Levich, Foreword by H. Rheingold, 1998
In a remarkably clear-eyed look at some of the major unexamined assumptions of our times, computer scientist Richard Crandall and philosopher Martin Levich look at the ideas underlying the Information Revolution. The six essays making up A Network Orange provide new views of such subjects as: Why market forces make your computer clumsy and inefficient. Why we must differentiate between machine intelligence and machine consciousness. Why the educational value of bulletin boards, chat rooms and other network forums is essentially nil. Why the concept of virtual reality is fraught with logical absurdities.
