Summary
A technological revolution is unfolding that promises, in the words of its creators, to redefine what it means to be human. Face-to-face communication is quickly becoming obsolete; already we turn to computers for information, entertainment, companionship- even love. Science fiction? Hardly. This is the brave new vision of the digital avant-garde, computer crusaders leading a high-tech assault on what was once known as reality. Sophisticated, well-funded, unabashedly messianic, they have the power, the technological know-how, and the marketplace savvy to make good on many of their wildest prophecies. With War of the Worlds, Mark Slouka gives us a funny, but eerily disturbing, humanist's look at the culture of cyber-space
