    Interesting take on soft impacts of technology, a bit hard to get through in some parts. Nicely put together book, well structured, good use of photos and diagrams. More fun to pick up and read random chapters.

    Wanna know more about quantum-physics? In an understandable language Hardison explains the basics.Especially his Mandelbrot equasion fits like all the math you ever saw, but couldn't get a grip on. Now you will!!And it is closeby, actually you, yourself is a part of it. It's blatant magic. To understand the importance how and why we are part of this universe, anyone interested should read this book!!

    Hardison meditates on the direction of both science and art as affected by advances in technology. This was a pretty interesting read given that it's twenty years old and awfully dated in spots (especially the 'computer art' section, hoo boy). The author doesn't give you a take-home message, so you're allowed to generate one yourself. As I chose this book from the Mage RPG bibliography, for me that message is "advances in technology are changing the way we perceive reality"
