You can say goodbye to today's Internet, New York Times bestselling author George Gilder says.

Soon the current model of aggregated free content populated with 'value-subtracted' advertising will die a natural death, due, of course, to the simple fact that absolutely no one wants to see online advertising. What will tomorrow's Internet look like?

In Life After Google, Gilder takes listeners on a brilliant, rocketing journey into the very near-future, into an Internet with a new 'bitcoin-bitgold' transaction layer that will replace spam with seamless micro-payments and provide an all-new standard for global money.

Food for thought that NOTHING in life is for free. Without being too technical, this book delves into Google's empire, how data mining has a dark side for society, crypocosm, blockchains, non-Google ways to navigate the digital world, and the new global monetary system emerging. A worthy listen in learning about and seeing the other side of the coin. While this book doesn't contain how-to lists or workbook engagement-type sections involving listener's interaction/reflection, it is long (though listenable in one take) and meaty enough to require thought to follow & digest; so, audiobook can be while multi-tasking, but something mindless like a long road trip or laundry/dishes/pulling weeds.
