    A visionary and optimistic thinker examines the tension between privacy and publicness that is transforming how we form communities, create identities, do business, and live our lives. The Internet, he argues, will change business, society, and life as profoundly as Gutenberg’s invention, shifting power from old institutions to us all.

    Howard says: "Very thought provoking-worth a 2nd or 3rd listen."
    "Useful for teachers and students alike"

    Story

    As an English teacher who spends a lot of time looking at changes in information flows and changing social and/or cultural values as a result of new media, this was a particularly interesting and sometimes thought-provoking read.

    What I enjoy the most is the way Jeff Jarvis challenges readers to think twice about assumptions they make with regard to old-world concepts such as privacy. Forcing you to consider just one side of the discussion. The one usually put forward by a generation whose basic truths are to some extent being turned on their head.

    Jarvis' openness in discussing his own mistaken insights in the past is refreshing, and allows us to get used what it is he's talking about. And for anyone who enjoys this book, the next logical step might be start following his blog.
