Going Offline: Menemukan Jati Diri di Dunia Penuh Distraksi book cover

Melalui media sosial dan realitas virtual, kehidupan online membuat kita terus terhubung dan selalu aktif. Ponsel cerdas kita adalah benda pertama yang kita raih saat bangun tidur dan yang terakhir kita letakkan sebelum tidur. Layar kecil di tangan kita itu memberikan kenyamanan, persahabatan, dan rangsangan yang membuat kita terus-menerus tertarik dan bersemangat serta mengalihkan perhatian kita dari dunia nyata. Bersamanya, kita jarang merasa bosan atau punya waktu untuk hanya duduk diam dan melamun.

Meskipun memberi kita banyak manfaat, tidak seharusnya kehidupan online menghilangkan kita dari kesenangan hidup di sini saat ini dan berinteraksi dengan dunia fisik. Seharusnya, kehidupan online tidak membuat kita lupa bagaimana berkomunikasi dengan orang-orang nyata dan menghargai keindahan lingkungan kita, serta tidak membuat kita tersesat dalam gangguan terus-menerus.

Buku ini mengundang kita untuk meletakkan gadget sesekali dan menemukan kembali kesenangan sederhana menghabiskan waktu secara offline. Waktu di mana kita dapat terhubung dengan hal-hal indah di sekitar kita—bukan dengan teks, video, emoji, tetapi dengan mata, telinga, sentuhan, perasaan, imajinasi, dan semua indra kita.

Going Offline adalah undangan untuk melakukan perjalanan yang membawa kita ke jantung kehidupan nyata itu sendiri—untuk menemukan dunia di luar dan bahkan untuk menemukan dunia di dalam, ke jantung tempat jati diri kita berada.

Overcomplicated: Technology at the Limits of Comprehension book cover

On July 8th, 2015, something weird happened. The NYSE computers went down and trading was suspended for several hours. The culprit wasn't hackers or a rogue algorithm. It was just... a glitch. And it's just the beginning.

Technological complexity is no trivial matter. While a few hours of suspended trading may not have had lasting impact on the markets, imagine the damage that could result from a breakdown of our air traffic control systems, or earthquake warning systems. We need a new way to think about technology, and we need it fast.

In Overcomplicated, complexity scientist Samuel Arbesman argues that we've reached a new era: a time when our technological systems have become too complex and interconnected for us to fully understand or predict.

From our machines and software to our legal frameworks and urban infrastructure, Arbesman explores the forces that lead us to continue to make systems more complicated and more incomprehensible, despite our best efforts to make them simpler. He goes on to identify a new framework for thinking about (and planning within) complex systems.

We must abandon the idea that we will understand the rules, and instead become field biologists for technology--relying on description and observation to uncover facts about how a system might work.

Whether you work in business, finance, science, or IT, or you simply own a smart phone, Overcomplicated offers valuable insight on how to adapt to the complex age we are living in.
