: New: Book Report: The Second Machine Age

It's a survey of high-tech stuff. That is, it's a high-level overview of things I've already learned about in detail. I guess. I mean, I sat still and read through a chapter about the idea of exponential growth, realized I was learning nothing, and put the book down. Maybe it's a fine book aimed at folks who don't spend all their time wallowing in this stuff. (Maybe it would have moved on to other topics if I'd given it a chance?)

OK, that was a short book report. So hey, San Francisco people: If you saw my book report about Black Against Empire and it didn't quite convince you to read the book, consider this: it's this year's One City One Book book. So it's trendy… uhm, trendy among people who listen to recommendations from librarians, anyhow…
