La tecnologia è in grado di cambiare il nostro modo di vivere, di pensare, e di essere. Siamo pronti ad accettarlo?
Tech is more important than ever, deeply affecting culture, politics and society. Given all the time we spend with our gadgets and apps, it’s essential to understand the principles that determine how tech affects our lives.
Understanding technology today
Technology isn’t an industry, it’s a method of transforming the culture and economics of existing systems and institutions.
