‘Who Owns the Future?’ Why Jaron Lanier Remains a Digital Optimist
August 24, 2013 Editor 0
If the technology industry can boast a true renaissance man, it is Jaron Lanier. A polymathic computer scientist, composer, visual artist and author, Lanier first found fame by popularizing the term “virtual reality” (VR) in the early 1980s and founding VPL Research to develop VR products. Today, Lanier is best known as the author of two influential books on the future of the digital world in which we live: the recently released Who Owns the Future? and 2010’s best-selling You Are Not a Gadget. These books have earned Lanier a reputation as the technology industry’s conscience — a role that has won him friends and foes in equal measure among the digerati. Knowledge@Wharton recently spoke with Lanier about who he believes will own the future.
