Internet Resources for Understanding This Brave New Digital World


The intent of this collection is to provide a large-enough, diverse enough, deep enough set of educational material on the nature of technology in society to at-least-minimally equip anyone to navigate the world we live in now – all for free, all online.

This collection is pretty disorganized at the moment. At some point it will leave the "collecting all the resources" phase and enter a "useful organization" phase. For now, all it supports is browsing throught the unsorted list(s).
