Dave Egger’s new novel, The Circle, is fantastic.
It’s also an important warning for anyone who is touched by social media (which is all of us).
In 1948, George Orwell wrote 1984 as a warning about what could go wrong with a totalitarian society.
The Circle is a damn close, and damn scary prediction of what will happen if we continue to hand control of our private lives to companies with few privacy controls on themselves. The one difference: This is something that is happening today, not in some far distant future.
Please read it and think deep.
