This book is well worth the read, especially if you are interested in how online communities can shape us and curious about how we might all interact better online. I strongly recommend this book and look forward to referencing it in my further writings.

In the spirit of the book, anyone up for online affinity groups here in Goodreads? Especially around books like this?
