I enjoyed the digital electronics history lessons in this book, but I didn't always appreciate the author's encouragement to look at the critical question in our current culture, "Do I own & manage my media OR does it own and manage me?" That question kept hitting me too close to home. I really have a clearer understanding that every new form of technology comes with benefits (front end) and costs (often hidden, relational, & on the back end). Being one who is easily attracted to every new gadget that comes along, I am much more aware of the important questions I need to ask myself before I even consider checking out a new gadget. It is a healthy exercise to be challenged about what we dedicate our time & resources to and openly accept into our lives . . .
