Books That Make You Enter The Internet—And Submit to It with Edgar Scott

 

We’re talking about Books That Make You Enter The Immersive Internet—And Become Its Slave

Technology is so cool. We can spend hours playing video games with entire storylines, such as  Animal Crossing or Second Life, or just hanging out on social media, Zooming with friends, Clubhouse. And what about making passive income by allowing someone to use our computers to mine bitcoins (whatever that is), and integrating VR and AR into the mix just makes it so we never have to leave our homes! It’s all such an amazing, immersive experience, isn’t it?

We don’t lose anything because of it, right? Not our freewill, our autonomy, our souls. Nope. Enter Edgar Scott,  author of the dystopian novel 418: I Am a Teapot.

Edgar Scott is an economist-turned computer scientist. For over 20 years, Edgar served as a Senior Database Administrator and Development Operations Team Manager in financial, crypto-currency, and medical industries, as well as with start-ups. His experience has taught him that people’s limited beliefs often keep them prisoners in a life they don’t want to live. This theme resonates in his forthcoming dystopian novel, 418. Born in Houston, he grew up in Canada, and Scott now resides in South Florida with his wife where he explores the real cost of technology on humanity in the future.
