NYU Prof: Digital Info Changing People’s Behavior

WestportNow.com Image
NYU journalism professor and author Charles Seife tonight talked about his book “Virtual Unreality: Just Because the Internet Told You, How Do You Know It’s True?” at a Westport Library appearance. The book describes how digital information has become extremely vulnerable to tampering and is changing people’s behavior. The lines of fantasy and reality are being blurred by the Internet, he said. But society has chosen to give up some power for convenience and getting things for free. “People don’t think twice,” he writes in his book, “about reflexively transmitting their whereabouts to a company that’s trying to bend your mind and make you a frequent visitor to your local Pizza Hut, Hess gas station, or RadioShack.” (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Marcia Logan for WestportNow.com
