Praise

Harper guides us through an engaging narrative, captivating us with vignettes of studies in communication behaviour and concept technologies such as the Whereabouts Clocks that show the locations of your family members… This is a fascinating book: an easy, enjoyable read that is refreshingly backed by an academic rigour that is so often missing from sociology studies on this subject. It’s a must read for all those looking to the future of communications.—Focus

Throughout, the book throws up the kind of nuanced observations that seem at first surprising and then just right: text-messaging is, at some deep level, a form of ‘gift exchange,’ and ‘social networking’ is as much for keeping the world at large out as it is for inviting new people in. Post that on your Facebook.
