I think this book, Program or be Programmed: Ten Commands for a Digital Age by digital critic and thinker Douglas Rushkoff, should be required reading for anyone interested in modern culture, politics or economics. It’s a short book, densely argued, that requires careful reading and attention to its ideas. Which probably makes it daunting to many in this era of fragmented ideas and short subjects. But it’s divided into ten clear sections (note “commands” as in programming inputs, rather than “commandments” as in biblical instructions) and is well worth the effort a reader must put into reading it.
