Dmitry Orlov - 'Shrinking the Technosphere'

Do you feel sometimes like you're a character in Brave New World? Learn how to assess your relationship with technology and establish a new one when Dmitry Orlov presents Shrinking the Technosphere:  Getting a Grip on the Technologies that Limit our Autonomy, Self-Sufficiency and Freedom on Thursday, January 26, at 7 pm. "Dmitry Orlov tells us how to return human values, pleasures, and freedoms to the driver’s seat. Shrinking the Technosphere is part self-help book, part philosophical tour de force. It is both entertaining and shockingly eye-opening; it is a book that liberates the mind." ---Richard Heinberg (Post Carbon Institute).
