William Mitchell - Me++ - ***

Read about this ages ago, but only recently saw a copy (although I could of course have just bought it from Amazon). From early reading looks good - one of the better books on the Internet, society and the future thing.

... not too bad in the end, some nice ways of looking at things (particularly migrating functions through different shells (clothing to buildings to domes), and plugging in/out of infrastructures (from WiFi to going to the toilet), and the notion of shedding bits and calling services to you rather than going to the point of distribution. He's on less sure ground when describing technology per se though.

Buy from Amazon (as I should have done!)
