The Past, Present and Future of Social Media – How We Fell to the Dark Side and Why the Force is with Us

It was 2017 when I failed to deliver what would have been my eighth book. At the time, I was approaching the two year anniversary of the release of my previous work, X: The Experience When Business Meets Design. I was feeling the pressure to deliver.
