Infostorms: how to roll with “information punches”

“The dawn of the information age is heralded as a turning point for humanity. New tools like the internet, email and instant messaging made information and communications available at the push of a button, and ushered in an era of seemingly instant answers and context. But in our current state of “any information, anywhere,” there are a number of dangers lurking just beyond the mouse click. In a new book from Springer – Infostorms: How to Take Information Punches and Save Democracy – authors Vincent F. Hendricks and Pelle G. Hansen help clarify how information is and should be used, and just how we as citizens can navigate the opportunities and pitfalls that await us in the information society.” (via Springer)
