Will Technology Change Everything
from the probably-not dept
Salon is reviewing The Social Life of Information, the new book by John Seely Brown and Paul Duguid. The premise is to look at all the outrageous predictions about what technology would do to the world and see if they came true. The answer, apparently, is not often. Technology changes the way people do things, but in a more evolutionary than revolutionary way. Salon feels that the book is interesting, but could have been written in a more accessible manner.
