it was amazing
bookshelves: tech-and-society, favorites

My initial impression of this book, especially the first third or so, was that it was a good overview and intro to the landscape but that I wished it had a little bit more depth to its analysis. The further along I got, though, and the more I thought about it, the more I’m convinced that this is essential reading for anyone who works with and appreciates the power of information, be they activists, technologists, or journalists. Tufekci is characteristically sharp while remaining totally accessible, and this book opens a Pandora’s box of thorny questions whose answers I am both dreading and eagerly looking forward to discovering, along with the rest of the world.
