ITT Book Club Fall Selection Net Smart: How To Thrive Online

November 2012 selection:

Rheingold, Howard (2012). Net Smart: How to thrive online. Cambridge, MA: MIT Press.

The future of digital culture—yours, mine, and ours—depends on how well we learn to use the media that have infiltrated, amplified, distracted, enriched, and complicated our lives. I’ve been asking myself and others how to use social media intelligently, humanely, and above all mindfully. This book is about what I’ve learned.
