I promised @frankreed I'd start a conversation about Harari because Harari is selling a ton of books which have ended up on the reading lists of Bill Gates, Barack Obama and Zuckerberg. Some people think he's genius, some say he should make any thinking person's skin crawl.
The reason The New York Times said he was tech's doomsayer, is he believes humans are hackable. You can use Facebook the way it's designed to hack what people believe, win elections and lead us to dystopian ruin.
Anyone have opinions on the guy?
