Transcending Books: What's Next For Law and Society?
Benjamin Alarie • TEDxBeaconStreetSalon
The modern book, made possible by the innovation of the printing press and moveable type, revolutionized law and modern civilization. We are living through a period similar in many ways to the social, political and economic upheavals brought on by mass printing and the concomitant widespread gains in literacy. The digital computer will ultimately be no less revolutionary, ushering in the elimination of legal uncertainty, the advent of legal singularity, and with it a reinvented social order.
