I always like reading more about future predictions. This book provides a window from the past, in which a prediction of a future with internet dominated society is described. The book covers a great deal of conflicts and problems that are at the core of our technical methodologies used to make cyberspace happen. A good book to have lots and lots of insights about where such a network mechanism is heading. Almost all of the predictions are accurate enough to match what has happened so far. The bad side of reading such a book is as you know more about cyberspace you start to easily lose the trust and understand that it's a system built to change and manipulated, and in the meanwhile it will manipulate our futures for better or worse...

Quotes Kaan Liked

Vernor Vinge
“The freedom of expression and entrepreneurship that have characterized the Internet to date would be a thing of the past, and the Internet, which has until now resisted the forces of corporate clout, and has maintained open and equal access for individuals as well as for corporate entities, would become a failed dream”
Vernor Vinge, True Names and the Opening of the Cyberspace Frontier

Vernor Vinge
“It is notable that the response to each public tragedy or threat in modern America seems to involve a call for citizens to surrender more of their rights.”
