Nicholas Carr - The Glass Cage (Colfax Avenue)

Nicholas Carr is the author of The Shallows, a Pulitzer Prize finalist, as well as The Big Switch and Does IT Matter? Carr will discuss and sign his important new book The Glass Cage: Automation and Us ($26.95 W.W. Norton), a celebration of technology and a warning about its misuse that will change the way you think about the tools you use every day. In The Glass Cage, Carr digs behind the headlines about factory robots and self-driving cars, wearable computers and digitized medicine, as he explores the hidden costs of granting software dominion over our work and our leisure.
