For the fun of it, in October 2010, I worked to re-release a Kindle and iPhone edition of one of my old books from the 1990s, Surviving the Information Age. This was easily done with the conversion assistance of Reality Info Systems located in Maharashtra, Pune, India — a company I found through eLance Online.
Here’s the blurb from the “jacket cover”:
Originally published in 1997, Surviving the Information Age offers a unique look into the experiences that Baby Boomers had when confronted by massive doses of technology throughout their lives.
The result, as described throughout the book, was a generation that was generally terrorized by the arrival of technology into various aspects of their everyday life.
The book also offered, at the time, a remarkably prescient series of predictions about the impact of the Internet on the global economy, the workforce, the nature of the career, and other key trends. In that way, it was a groundbreaking book, far ahead of its time.
Surviving the Information Age is a historical artifact — a document that describes, in unique detail, the experience of a generation with technology, long before that technology had a chance to mature and cause massive global change.
You might find the book to be an interesting read if you find history to be fascinating; if you want to know what it was like in the ‘early days of the Internet age (if we can call the mid-90’s early; by that point, I’d be on the Internet and its precursors for some 15 years!); and if you want some insight into what helped to bring us to where we are today!
