    The title and back cover realy don't do a good job describing this book it's not any sort of action sci fi and there's really no characters at allInstead it's a retelling of human history from the far distant future perhaps by a computer about the rise of computers and how they interact with humans through the agesThe author who is apparently a nobel prize winning Physicist has some really interesting idea on how computers and data culture would effect the world He gets the internet pretty much spot on in theory if not in delivery yet envisions a society that doesn't even resemble ours a bit but perhaps it could some dayNot the most exciting book but it's just long enough to have present some excellent thought provoking concepts before it drags on and becomes boring

    For those who enjoy Stanislaw Lem I would recommend this short and Interesting sci fi novella Similar to Lem’s One Human Minute the book is especially profound because the author’s view ahead from the 1960s matches actual technology developments with prescience And it lacks sensationalism by sticking with a plain prose appropriate for its form a fictional historical survey looking backwards from a very future post computing disaster visage point This tome would’ve earned 4 stars with length and 5 stars with a better ending

    It's been said that this was dry Considering the fact that the author was a Nobel prize winning chemist writing in another language I suspect it was partly because of the intellectual presentation of the original author combined with the preferences of the translatorIf you're hoping for a Matrix type tale of humans fighting the great computer you will be disappointed uite the opposite In this tale humans become dependent on computers largely give up control of most of their day to day lives to the great computer nearly become extinct when some bureaucrats use their limited control to try to seize power and ultimately develop the great computer to the point of being able to replicate and repair itself such that the great computer which has long since become a network of machines can care for humanity without being controlled by itWritten in 1968 it is remarkably prescient The mobile device on which I'm writing this may be larger than the wristwatch sized teletotal it describes but the ability to contact others with it access knowledge on demand etc makes it worthy of the title The author describes how people no longer need to live in a city to buy things They shop online then press the purchase button and laser guided drones deliver it to your door anyone? We'll have to wait for Jeff Bezos to buy some politicians before the FAA will approve the delivery drones but I suspect that's just a matter of timeMuch of manufacturing is automated Sound familiar? And with 3D printers able to make custom products to order it's a bit like he predicts where two people need not have an identical item unless they so choose We're well on our way thereThe great computers are able to think deeply testing millions of possibilities in a second much faster than human thinkers Conseuently they discover patterns and relationships that we've missed solve problems which are beyond our thoughts process piles of data which we can't discovering surprising answers to puzzles we couldn't solve Big data anyone?Some of the predictions are a little off People largely stop interacting directly with other people using their teletotals as intermediaries In which case the languages spoken cease to matter I can speak any kind of gibberish I like so long as my teletotal can convert it into an intermediate format that the other person's teletotal can convert into their preferred language Language translation is still a hard problemHe describes evolution where humans came to be dominant because of combination of favorable conditions and our ability to adapt We provide the favorable environment for the great computer to evolve And as we surpassed the Neanderthals the computers ultimately surpass usThere are cautionary tales for those who become too dependent on technology There is ultimately a uestion mark over our future


  4. Derek Derek says:

    A satire in the form of a history paper or thesis from the future with the general message that eventually the computers we love so much will no longer need usGenerally a very dry read with no characters and no real story to speak of The cover copy promised rebellion from the Big Computer and a postapocalyptic world after the computers fail but this was entirely misleading no rebellion at all and the computers and society is rebuilt after the crashAn incisive description of telecommuting cellphones and what could be interpreted as internet shopping
