With the computer out of the crisis

VDI technology in Bavaria
Obviously someone has read a lot. Tim Cole has worked himself into the topic of AI in a crazy hard job. Cole has been delivering books on the Internet for decades and likes to act as a mixture of hiking preacher and mountain guide. Cole always wants to show what others tend to overlook. The important thing is to achieve the goal.


Despite the not necessarily technical approach, Cole sticks to facts without falling into alarmism or moral panic.


Cole presents a convincing plea against the GAFA culture, which is addictive and leads to digital isolation. Help can only be promised by a cultural breakout from digital paternalism and exploitation such as control. He recommends digital fasting and a competent use of the new technologies that enable a corresponding digital culture. Cole is right: we have to fight to cope with the new technologies culturally and work to tame, domesticate and decriminalize them, to cultivate them for a short time as with the other technological revolutions before. The parallels with the wild west and the gold leaf robber culture cannot be denied. A stimulating book for those who don't have to follow every technological hype, but are ready to think about what techniques and as people really promote it.

New rules through digital education

Due to the digital change and the possibilities that are available to every employer and employee, offices as we know them may take a back seat in the future. From the point of view of journalist, book author and new media trainer Tim Cole, offices are out of date and "still function as a meeting place and marketplace". However, there is still compulsory attendance at the workplace throughout Germany. A loosening could be beneficial for the employees, because this way they can work according to their daily rhythm. HR managers can also support digital education by advocating the dismantling of hierarchies. In this way, productivity could also be increased.
