Scary and illuminating

Boy am I glad I am living this day and age rather than 50-100 years from now! Just a coincidence that I happened to watch the first season of Black Mirror on Netflix and I was chilled to think that it may end up that way given how articulately Prof Harari puts it. Humans becoming data points and then dissolving like clumps of mud in the river flow of data. But Homo Sapiens do seem to have a deathwish and this accelerating data driven world may indeed mean the end of Homo Sapiens. Both these books are right up there with the most thought provoking books I have ever read. Prof Harari take a bow - just blows the mid away with the breadth of his knowledge and the expanse of his canvas.
