Life After Google: The Fall of Big Data and the Rise of the Blockchain Economy by George Gilder

Life After Google (2018), shows how the future may instead lie in the “cryptocosm” and its blockchain architecture, which allows everyone to exert individual control of data and security online. Since the dawn of the internet, there have been tremendous progress in technology and the way people live their lives. And at the heart of it all is Google, a company that has managed to build a global way of thinking around their business model and vision. But it’s also falling rapidly out of favor with users for its lack of security precautions. Google may once have dominated, but we should prepare for a world that is no longer defined by it.

  • Business buffs who want to know where the future is headed
  • Technology enthusiasts who want to understand the latest developments
  • Anyone with an interest in their online data security
