    Jeff Jarvis provides an educated and enlightening depiction of modern economics. A shift in business thought where Google has become a leading players. It will be interesting to review the book in 5 years time and see whether some his ideas have gained traction.

  • The Accidental Billionaires: The Founding of Facebook

    The high-energy tale of how two socially awkward Ivy Leaguers, trying to increase their chances with the opposite sex, ended up creating Facebook. The Accidental Billionaires is a compulsively readable story of innocence lost, and of the unusual creation of a company that has revolutionized the way hundreds of millions of people relate to one another.

    Charles E. Grant says: "Infotainment, poorly written"
    "what would the critics know?"
    Overall

    The events that unfolded in the evolution of Facebook are fascinating. It has probably been dramatised somewhat...who cares, it was a good listen. I listend to it in 3 hours on double speed as the narator is a bit slow.

    This engrossing book explores the profound implications of personal information on the Internet, preserved forever even if it is false, biased, or humiliating. Brimming with examples of online gossip, slander, and rumor, the book discusses the tensions between privacy and free speech and proposes how to balance the two. What information about you is on the Internet?

    Andrew says: "topical but failed to convert"

    Got the book because i believe the issue of internet reputation is gaining relevance... but the book struggled to grab me.
