Our lives, homes, and work are, whether we
realize it or not, being designed in California.
Our day-to-day experiences are increasingly
filtered through social media interfaces, and
the Internet of Things is nearly a reality. This
important book assesses California's potent
influence on today's design culture and traces
its evolution, from the influence of The Whole
Earth Catalog in the 1960s to the emergence
of the Silicon Valley tech giants that are now
having a massive influence on contemporary
life around the world.
