Description - Save the Humans: Manifesto for Creative Thinking in the Digital A by Mieke Gerritzen

Smart Phones, Healthcare Robots, Wearable Computers and Self-Driving Cars. They are arriving or already exists. We are becoming increasingly intimate with the machines that constantly count, control and watch the way we live. How can the growing world population of more than 7 billion people create a humane life for everyone? Let's find the errors and the holes in the technosphere that will give us space for free and creative thinking. What's at stake here is the remains of human agency. Let's use the brain pixels that are not taken yet. And Save the Humans! The contributors to curate the strongest quotes they can find on the subject. It made no difference whether they were written yesterday or a thousand years ago. From Plato to Marshall McLuhan to Mark Zuckerberg. The aim was to make a selection of quotes that currently question the autonomy of mankind in the digital computer era, and study the future of the independent creative spirit. The main questions are: - What is the significance of independent thinking in the networked society where everything and everyone is connected? - What is the influence of technology on humanity? - Do software standards, templates and algorithms stimulate creativity? - Does the digital domain make our world larger? Or is every space pixel a danger for the free spirit? Is there any communication without control?
