The Social Life of Information

★★★★☆

Review:

A dated (1999) but insightful and entertaining warning about the dangers of technological utopianism; a reminder that information has a life in the world that can surprise and outwit its developers. Most of this book holds up well today; search engines for example have exceeded Duguid & Brown’s expectations but many things have not.

★★★★☆
