Brodner, The revolution will be Twittered declared journalist Andrew Sullivan after protests erupted in Iran in June Yet for all the talk about the democratizing power of the Internet regimes in Iran and China are as stable and repressive as ever In fact authoritarian governments are effectively using the Internet to suppress free speech hone their surveillance techniques disseminate cutting edge propaganda and pacify their populations with digital entertainment Could the recent Western obsession with promoting democracy by digital means backfire In this spirited book journalist and social commentator Evgeny Morozov shows that by falling for the supposedly democratizing nature of the Internet Western do gooders may have missed how it also entrenches dictators threatens dissidents and makes it harder not easier to promote democracy Buzzwords like st century statecraft sound good in PowerPoint presentations but the reality is that digital diplomacy requires just as much oversight and consideration as any other kind of diplomacy Marshaling compelling evidence Morozov shows why we must stop thinking of the Internet and social media as inherently liberating and why ambitious and seemingly noble initiatives like the promotion of Internet freedom might have disastrous implications for the future of democracy as a whole, Sono dieci anni che la Apple colleziona un successo dopo l altro La societ di Cupertino ha portato nelle case di milioni di persone non solo una tecnologia ma anche uno stile di vita Chi compra un MacBook un iPad un iPhone non sta solo comprando un computer un tablet o uno smartphone sta dichiarando un appartenenza Sta dicendo qualcosa di s Ma cosa c dietro questo successo Cosa riuscito a fare Steve Jobs che non sono riusciti a fare gli altri imprenditori Evgeny Morozov l enfant terrible del web ha affilato la sua penna ha preso un bel respiro e si buttato a testa bassa contro i ritratti agiografici dedicati a Jobs che in questi ultimi mesi hanno popolato le librerie e internet Un analisi caustica e illuminante sul miracolo Apple br br La domanda a questo punto sorge spontanea Steve Jobs stato un filosofo che ha cercato di cambiare il mondo oppure stato un genio del marketing capace di trasformare una normale azienda produttrice di computer nell oggetto di una vera e propria venerazione mentre era indaffarato a regolare i conti con il passato e a nutrire il suo gigantesco ego br br Evgeny Morozov
