The subtitle of this book is "Will Technology Force Us to Choose Between Privacy and Freedom"? This is a brilliant technopolitical analysis by a science fiction writer and media critic. I don't agree with everything Brin says, but this upbeat volume is probably one of the ten books that have affected me most in the past ten years.

And, as far as I can tell, everything Brin predicted in 1998 is coming true.
