Picnic Comma Lightning

By Laurence Scott

“A stylish, playful exploration of what digital life is doing to the way we find meaning in the world.”

Picnic Comma Lightning brings us further meditations on what digital life is doing to the way we find meaning in the world. Lawrence Scott ponders his world with a mix of delighted avidity, candour and melancholy. But this second book goes deeper, ranges even wider, and takes many different forms in the mind. It is a philosophical meditation on perceptions of reality, achieved by means of beguilingly playful moves from confession to anthropology to social analysis. It is also an elegy for two lost parents, who died in quick succession when the author was in his early 30s.

Pete was used as a subject matter expert and is interviewed in the book. Contributing commentary on the changing role of technology in people’s everyday lives, and how we give away our data so freely.
