The great irony of the high-tech age is that we've become enslaved to devices that were supposed to give us freedom. That's why in HighTech/High Touch, John Naisbitt decided to revisit a chapter from Megatrends, his 1982 bestseller, in which he discussed the split between high tech and what he dubbed "high touch."

We all know what high tech is--these are the technologies that "make us available 24 hours a day, like a convenience store," Naisbitt writes. He says we live in a "technologically intoxicated zone", the symptoms of which include a continual search for quick fixes and lives that are "distanced and distracted." High touch, on the other hand, is the stuff we give up when we're tuned into the technological world: hope and fear and longing, love and forgiveness, nature and spirituality. To discover where the twain shall meet, Naisbitt takes us on a journey that includes Celebration, Florida, the Disney-created community that was fully wired from the get-go; Martha Stewart, who shows people with complicated lives how to enjoy simple tasks like gardening; extreme sports and adventure travel, in which ordinary people expose themselves to the full fury of nature and gravity. And that's all just the first quarter of the book; Naisbitt goes on to look at how video games desensitise children to violence; the challenges the human genome project presents to religion and spirituality; and, finally, "specimen art", in which artists create disturbing images of life, death and human sexuality.

There's no conclusion, in the traditional sense, only a look at what's happening in our world. But the reader will probably take some sort of action after finishing High Tech / High Touch: switching off the cellphone for a few hours a day; permanently locking away the children's violent Nintendo games; maybe even booking a vacation at the most remote location possible. Anything to get away from the constant buzz of a wired world. --Lou Schuler, Amazon.com --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.


Praise for High Tech/High Touch:

"High Tech/High Touch is an 'a-ha' book of the first order. John Naisbitt, Nana Naisbitt, and Douglas Philips provide valuable insight into important technological, social, cultural, and artistic developments, which, while happening right under our noses, are blurred by an ever-accelerating world of our own creation."
--Carl Goodman, Curator of Digital Media at the American Museum of the Moving Image

"John Naisbitt, Nana Naisbitt, and Douglas Philips's take on artists' responses to technology is insightful and precise. Not only have they pinpointed some of the most innovative artists working today, but their understanding of their work is completely original. A refreshing change of pace from most discussions about art."
--Dan Cameron, Senior Curator, New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York City

"This is an important and troubling book.  Naisbitt and his co-authors have described in powerful detail the dark side of technology and its impact on our lives in the twenty-first century."
--Stephen Rhinesmith, author of A Manager's Guide to Globalization


"In such turbulent times, we prize those among us who see clearly.  John Naisbitt offers a dramatic, convincing view on the changes already under way.  This is a book for everyone who wants a sense of the near future."
--Marilyn Ferguson, author of The Aquarian Conspiracy

Megatrends 2000:

"Thought-provoking . . . most persuasive . . . will carry us into the twenty-first century."
--Business Week

"A magnificent journey into the future for America and mankind."
--Jack Kemp --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

In High Tech - High Touch, a new book by John Naisbitt and coauthors Nana Naisbitt and Doug Philips, the questions of the next millennium are raised. The authors do not answer these questions, but they urge us to begin discussing them. Where are we taking technology or is it taking us? Has technology fulfilled its promise of giving us more leisure time or has it made our lives busier and more complex? Is the line between real and virtual blurring and if it is what does that mean to our children and our society? Are we on the verge of a leap in evolution through genetic engineering or will we tinker with life and create monsters like Dr. Frankenstein? Will religion and science find ways to understand and appreciate each other or will they continue their bitter battle over the turf of truth? And what does the Specimen Art movement say about who we are and where we're going? High Tech - High Touch is a fascinating exploration of these and other significant questions of our time. I highly recommend it to everyone living on our little island in space.

Recently I always keep asking myself a question: " Are we addicted to the Internet world too much?" This book raises some good questions for us to begin to think about: 1. Do we favor the quick fix, from religion to nutrition? 2. Do we fear and worship technology? 3. Do we blur the distinction between real and fake? 4. Do we accept violence as normal? 5. Do we love technology as a toy? 6. Do we live our lives distanced and distracted?
Reading this book is a very good beginning to look for signs of these symptoms in the world we live as well as in our culture. "Technology always originates from human nature."

My congratulations go to the author who was able to compile a book about the "new" economy and information age. The only downfall of the book is in the extreme examples that Naisbat used to explain why mass media is hurting our lives as humans. Overall, an enjoyable and entertainable read.
