Negroponte, Being Digital
In lively, mordantly witty prose, Negroponte decodes the mysteries–and debunks the hype–surrounding bandwidth, multimedia, virtual reality, and the Internet, and explains why such touted innovations as the fax and the CD-ROM are likely to go the way of the BetaMax. “Succinct and readable. . . . If you suffer from digital anxiety . . . here is a book that lays it all out for you.”–Newsday.
