It’s plausible to believe that in an age in which we now communicate through adorable emoticons that technology is only hampering our intellect. But nay says writer Clive Thompson, whose new book examines our history of technological advances from the written word to the printing press and the fears and doubts spawned by each invention. In Smarter Than You Think: How Technology Is Changing Our Minds for the Better, Thompson looks on the bright side of technology.
