    If you suffer from digital anxiety here is a book that lays it all out for you."–Newsday. About Being Digital In lively, mordantly witty prose, Negroponte decodes the mysteries–and debunks the hype–surrounding bandwidth, multimedia, virtual reality, and the Internet, and explains why such touted innovations as the fax and the CD-ROM. Also, being digital leaves little to the imagination. CHAPTER THE DNA OF INFORMATION Most forms of media are now being digitized. Atoms are starting to lose their value while the bits are starting to become priceless. Even a company's future is determined by the ability of its products and services to be converted into digital form.

    Negroponte grasped that it would also shake up the book industry and Being Digital has been published in a number of e-book reader formats, but at the moment the experience of digital books leaves something to be desired compared to traditional books. Negroponte labours a surprising amount of copy on tablet devices/5(66).

    In Being Digital, Negroponte presents his vision for the future of mediating technologies, how they could and should evolve and how they will impact on our lives. Written in an anecdotal style with more than 20 essays grouped under the three themes of bits, interface and digital life, the book presents its author's personal and first-hand. The "Being Digital" Cyberdock is meant to provide a structure from which the book can evolve digitally as the ideas it advances are explored, realized, altered, or discarded. To spur readers' thinking processes, we have included links to some resources not on the Internet before this publication, to current books whose authors advance.
