Digital media pioneer Jeff Einstein has emerged in recent years as one of the 21st century’s most sober critics. His observations and writings about media as addiction stand alone as the only organic explanation for why the quality of American life is in such obvious decline in what he calls the Great Age of Mediation, an age when a default super-addiction to all things media and all things digital sits as imperious moderator over all our most important personal and social debates, and steals our time and money and freedom -- like any other addiction to any other narcotic.
Mr. Einstein’s digital chops date all the way back to 1984, when he authored the first major how-to book series on personal computers and co-founded the nation’s first digital advertising agency. His latest thoughts on media as addiction take wing in his new book, The Media Addict’s Handbook.
Mr. Einstein lives and works in NYC, where he sells real estate and lectures at group events about how to protect and promote the quality of life in the Great Age of Mediation.
