Hacking Happiness

(Häftad)
Beskrivning:

The answer to "The ""Dumbest Generation--Hacking H(app)iness" shows us how to utilize our technology to improve the human experience and drive social change. "Hacking H(app)iness" was featured at TEDx and in "USA Today," "Fast Company," "BBC News," "Mashable."com, "The Guardian," "The Huffington Post," "Forbes," "Inc.," "PRWeek," and "Advertising Age."
In "Hacking H(app)iness," futurist and contributing "Mashable.""com "writer John C. Havens introduces you to your "quantified self"--your digital identity represented by gigabytes of data produced from tracking your activities on your smartphone and computer. Harvested by mega-corporations such as Google, Facebook, and Amazon, this data is gathered, Havens argues, because of its immense economic value, by companies that encourage a culture of "sharing" as they hoard the information for monetary gain.
But there's an alternative to this digital dystopia. Emerging technologies will help us reclaim this valuable data for ourselves. At the same time, sensors in smartphones and wearable devices will help us track our emotions and thereby improve our well-being.
An issues book highlighting the benefits of an examined life in the digital world, this timely work takes the trepidation out of the technological renaissance and illustrates how the fruits of the Information Age can improve our lives for a happier humanity.
