Geek Heresy: Rescuing Social Change from the Cult of Technology

By Kentaro Toyama

After a decade designing applied sciences intended to handle schooling, wellbeing and fitness, and worldwide poverty, award-winning computing device scientist Kentaro Toyama got here to a tough end: Even in an age of fantastic expertise, social development depends upon human alterations that devices can’t deliver.

Computers in Bangalore are locked away in dusty cupboards simply because academics don’t comprehend what to do with them. cellphone apps intended to unfold hygiene practices in Africa fail to enhance wellbeing and fitness. Executives in Silicon Valley evangelize novel applied sciences at paintings at the same time they ship their youngsters to Waldorf colleges that ban electronics. and 4 a long time of amazing innovation in the United States have performed not anything to show the tide of emerging poverty and inequality. Why then will we preserve hoping that expertise will remedy our best social ills?

In this incisive e-book, Toyama treatments us of the manic rhetoric of electronic utopians and reinvigorates us with a deeply people-centric view of social swap. Contrasting the outlandish claims of tech zealots with tales of individuals like Patrick Awuah, a Microsoft millionaire who left his engineering task to open Ghana’s first liberal arts college, and Tara Sreenivasa, a graduate of a extraordinary South Indian institution that takes impoverished teenagers into the high-tech places of work of Goldman Sachs and Mercedes-Benz, Geek Heresy is a heartwarming reminder that it’s human knowledge, now not machines, that flow our global forward.
