Book Description

 That the Internet is no longer a free and independent space is stating the obvious. But the repercussions, on the individual as well as society, are more serious than one can imagine. Instead of becoming an alternate space for those who have been unheard and marginalized, it has fast become a platform to spread hatred, fake news, intrude on our privacy and mostly, reinforce the social fissures unique to Indian society. In what is a close and upfront examination of man’s behaviour online, this book shows how the dark side of the Internet has not only got us all in its web, it has also fanned our dark side. From trolling, to body shaming to its destructive effects on our cognitive skills and relationships, the Internet has taken on our lives, making it a new age Frankenstein, beyond the control of existing laws and rules. Slave Technology is a must-read in the times of post-truth.
