Blown to Bits: Your Life, Liberty, and Happiness After the Digital Explosion

Ein spannender Buchtipp: Blown to Bits von Hal Abelson, Ken Ledeen und Harry Lewis. Man braucht eine ganze Weile, um sich allein durch die Vorschußlorbeeren zu arbeiten, deshalb hier nur zwei Empfehlungen, die deutlich machen, worum es in dem Buch geht…

“Can you control who sees all that personal information about you? Can email be truly confidential, when nothing seems to be private? Shouldn’t the Internet be censored the way radio and TV are? Is it really a federal crime to download music? When you use Google or Yahoo! to search for something, how do they decide which sites to show you? Do you still have free speech in the digital world? Do you have a voice in shaping government or corporate policies about any of this?”

…und wie es Experten bewerten:

“There is no simpler or clearer statement of the radical change that digital technologies will bring, nor any book that better prepares one for thinking about the next steps.”

Lawrence Lessig, Stanford Law School and Author of Code and Other Laws of Cyberspace

Fazit: sehr empfehlenswert.
