Read in February, 2012

I like the idea of "infoveganism" he discusses in the later sections of the book - the idea that you should gather information at the lowest base of the pyramid (the data itself) rather than from the top (aggregating news feeds/blogs). He's got something to say not only about information and politics (though he has definitely been inspired by the Nicholas Carr he's cited) but also about education in the 21st century. He speaks of four critical skills - Search, Filter, Creation and Synthesis - being required for 21st century literacy. Persuasive.
