Talking Human No More

I found this in a way funny but very fitting - There is a book named after you, Human no More - and it is about humans becoming increasingly digitalized. I guess you would actually like it, havent read it by now though:

BARNES & NOBLE | Human No More: Digital Subjectivities, Unhuman Subjects, and the End of Anthropology by Neil L. Whitehead | NOOK Book (eBook), Paperback, Hardcover
