What Turned Jaron Lanier Against the Web?

The digital pioneer and visionary behind virtual reality
has turned against the very culture he helped create 

Smithsonian excerpt

The connection Lanier makes between 
techno-utopianism, 
the rise of the machines 
and the Great Recession 
is an audacious one. 
Lanier is suggesting 
we are outsourcing ourselves 
into insignificant advertising-fodder. 
Nanobytes of Big Data that diminish 
our personhood, 
our dignity. 
He may be the first 
Silicon populist.
