Description

You can say goodbye to today's Internet, New York Times best-selling author George Gilder says. Soon the current model of aggregated free content populated with "value-subtracted" advertising will die a natural death, due, of course, to the simple fact that absolutely no one wants to see online advertising. What will tomorrow's Internet look like?

In Life After Google, Gilder takes listeners on a brilliant, rocketing journey into the very near-future, into an Internet with a new "bitcoin-bitgold" transaction layer that will replace spam with seamless micro-payments and provide an all-new standard for global money.

Good, but a lot of inside baseball

A great look behind the curtain of the past and future of tech. A must read to know what's happening in the world.
But, the author likes writing in a literary form which can make it hard to follow in a non-fiction audio book.

I'm a highly educated researcher that knows 2 programming languages and has years of statistics and economics experience, and there were times that I was lost, because he assumes a deeper understanding of computer science than most people have. Even computer savvy people.
So, this book seems more for people in the tech community than for a general audience. It also helps to have read Mises and other libertarian economists to not get lost.

That said I recommend it. You'll learn a lot.

Insightful, compelling predictions for the future

This book lays out a perfect case for how the internet is fundamentally broken, how no amount of big data can compensate for bad data, and how security is not a feature to be added on top of software, but instead an architecture that must be built in from the beginning.

Gilder makes the case that #blockchain is the solution to what is wrong about virtually every economic and technological problem the world faces. If you think big data, automation, machine learning and AI are important, beware of #BigBadData. Unless we “fix” the ever growing problem of bad data, none of them can realize their potential.

Author missed the opportunity to write a truly outstanding book


The authors political bias got in the way when trying to make cogent arguments. Many times caims are not supported but instead left to be self evident. This is a pitty as it reduces the impact of other claims made in the book.
At times the book is shoddily researched and got some basic facts wrong, especially when talking about blockchain projects. For example the author talks about “Vitalik Buterin and his company Ethereum”. I would forgive such an inaccuracy in a book about another topic but this books sole purpose is to talk about how blockchain is the new paradigm that will dethrone today’s kings like corporate giant google. One of the main points in my opinion is that blockchain projects can not be classified in the traditional way. They are certainly not companies or corporations but create a “commons” of sorts which for the first time in history allows complete stranger to work together for the benefit of all.

All in all I’d say a missed opportunity to really make the case for life after google, which decentralized take certainly has the potential to displace. The arguments presented in this book are not convincing and barely scratch the surface of how this could come about.

Finally a GREAT BOOK on Blockchain

I was beginning to think I was doomed to read Neo-Marxist philosophy over and over like in "The Truth Machine" and "Blockchain Revolution".

This book brought the human spirit back into the discussion and peeled away much of the hype surrounding blockchain to reveal an even better vision.

I want to read George Gilder's previous books!

Wow what a book. Kinda blew my mind. I had to go back several times and re-listen. Very complex perspective. I gotta think about this.

Simply enlightening!

Confirmed my belief that our future is in the crypto chiasm. Democratized systems of truth, trust, and equitable distribution controlled by the people...the new system of the world. Highly recommend to those either in or pursuing a technology career.
