This extraordinary book explains the engine that has catapulted the Internet from backwater to ubiquity - and reveals that it is sputtering precisely because of its runaway success. With the unwitting help of its users, the generative Internet is on a path to a lockdown, ending its cycle of innovation - and facilitating unsettling new kinds of control.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Stephanie | 2/11/2014

    " It's a bit technical, but otherwise a good read. Makes you aware of issues with the net that otherwise pass by unnoticed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Lori Grant | 1/22/2014

    " A should-read book for knowledge workers and entrepreneurs on concepts and trends regarding visions of the future. "

    " This book offers an intriguing perspective on the internet and digital culture. Zittrain compares generative appliances (like PCs that accept code from any source) to tethered applicances (like iPods that are completely locked down by the company and cannot be reprogrammed without illegally hacking into them)and what an impact these two technological systems can have on our culture. It definitely made me think about the serious implications that seemingly simple digital choices can have on life. "

    " I read the first part of this book in e-book format, but really need to pick up a copy in paper. Zittrain's ideas about the direction of the internet and connected technology are very interesting and equally frightening. I look forward to reading this one and updating this review with more info.
