I've just finished reading the excellent book 'The People Vs Tech: How the internet is killing democracy (and how we save it)' by Jamie Bartlett. It makes some excellent reading, and many of his points are well researched and should make us all think about where technology is taking us. Are we sleepwalking into a future where Facebook, Twitter et al will dictate what news we see, what we should think etc.

I've written a couple of articles over on my blog covering similar ground.

The People Vs Tech by Jamie Bartlett | PenguinRandomHouse.com: Books[^]
"There are two ways of constructing a software design: One way is to make it so simple that there are obviously no deficiencies, and the other way is to make it so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies. The first method is far more difficult." - C.A.R. Hoare
