Read in December, 2010

A fascinating book on the brief history of the technology that drives the internet and the inevitable move to the cloud. the book is setup by paralleling the evolution of electricity as a utility and the potential for computing power to do the same. Nicholas Carr pulls this potentially dry subject all together with fast-paced and entertaining writing.
