Der Ausfall des Internets und seine Folgen für die Welt

It’s just a matter of time before the internet collapses. It’ll go down, and we’ll be hit with successive waves of panic. Sounds apocalyptic? It’s not. This book is about the imminent internet blackout that experts have been warning us of for years. It describes how a total collapse could happen, considers the potential fallout and addresses urgent topics stemming from one critical question: how did the internet transform from a source of liberation to what it is today (a den of addiction, disinformation, surveillance and manipulation)?
