Online PR News – 03-October-2012 – Washington – LOS ALAMITOS, Calif., October 2012 – The Company We Keep is available in paperback for US $19.95 on Amazon.com and through CreateSpace.
Grier is associate professor of International Science and Technology Policy at George Washington University and the author of When Computers Were Human and Too Soon to Tell.
His latest book, an outgrowth of columns he wrote for Computer magazine, examines how digital technology affects communities, connecting individuals more closely to the centers of political, economic, social, and cultural power.
"With The Company We Keep, I am looking at the generation of my students and trying to understand their world," Grier said. "They live in a world that provides information at a fast pace and connects them to people thousands of miles away. They are trying to build an identity, make a place for themselves, and participate in some kind of stable community. Those are the themes of the stories found in this book."
