Sydney
in the 1970s and 1980s was a world of limited choice, one where we all watched
the same television programs and the household phone was at the heart of all
networks people belonged to: family, school, church and the neighbourhood. The
arrival of the internet promised a utopian, creative and democratic future that
would break down traditional institutions and replace them with exciting
collaborative networks. So how did we end up here?


In Webtopia, Peter Lewis draws from his own
pre- and post-tech experience and conversations with entrepreneurs,
politicians, pastors, parents, teachers and journalists to show us that technology
is not the problem. We are. If we fix our relationship with technology, it will
be easier to fix our relationships with each other in a fragmenting world.


Riveting, engaging and wise, Webtopia traces our digital journey to
this point and, fearlessly, marks out the best route from here.
