Summary
Our lives, homes, and work are, whether we realize it or not, being designed in California. Our day-to-day experiences are increasingly filtered through social media interfaces, and the Internet of Things is nearly a reality. This important book accesses California's potent influence on today's design culture and traces its evolution, from the influence of 'The Whole Earth Catalog' in the 1960s to the emergence of the Silicon Valley tech giants that are now having a massive influence on contemporary life around the world
