            Sydney in the 1970s and 1980s was a world of limited choice, one where we all watched the same television programs and the household phone was at the heart of all networks people belonged to: family, school, church and the neighbourhood. The arrival of the internet promised a uto...pian, creative and democratic future that would break down traditional institutions and replace them with exciting collaborative networks. So how did we end up here? In Webtopia, Peter Lewis draws from his own pre- and post-tech experience and conversations with entrepreneurs, politicians, pastors, parents, teachers and journalists to show us that technology is not the problem. We are. If we fix our relationship with technology, it will be easier to fix our relationships with each other in a fragmenting world. Riveting, engaging and wise, Webtopia traces our digital journey to this point and, fearlessly, marks out the best route from here.

            Are you a parent struggling to set healthy, effective rules around technology in your house? Or have you already set clear parameters but find yourself outsmarted by your tech-savvy kids?

Brad Marshall, The Unplugged Psychologist, is on the front line helping parents deal with the dominance of gaming and problematic technology use.

The Tech Diet for your Teenager contains: Ways to apply workable solutions for excessive internet use and gaming rather than fighting about it Advice on how to take control of the Wi-Fi and manage smartphones and data Practical tips to help survive the school holidays How to tackle kids telling you they are doing 'homework' while switching screens A holistic plan that puts your child's wellbeing first, screens second Special information for children with conditions such as ADHD, autism spectrum disorders, anxiety and depression

            Computers are the foundation of the information age, but communication technology is the foundation of the foundation. Without the theories and practical applications of theory brought to us by the pioneers of communication, the computer age would perhaps have remained in the bac...k office, hidden away as infrastructure like electricity or running water ~ critical to modern life, but not as transforming as the combination of communications and computing. The information age exploded, once machines were endowed with the ability to talk among themselves. The Signal connects everything to everything else, in both communication, and in the metaphorical sense as the link between and among people.
