This book, with the subtitle "The Making of a New Tribe and the Remaking of the World" is an anthropological reckoning with the most powerful tribe in the world today, computer programmers. Author Clive Thompson asks who they are, how they think, what qualifies as greatness in their world, and what should give us pause. Thompson gets close to some of the great programmers of our time, including the creators of Facebook's News Feed, Instagram, and Google's cutting-edge AI.
