A collection of columns. Not bad, not great. ( )

Not so much brain candy as brain popcorn - Doctorow, as a blogger/columnist, writes very short-form essays and while they contain great ideas, they can only have so much substance. However, still totally enjoyable and what I assume is a pretty good introduction to his non-fiction work (I wonder if his first collection of essays wouldn't be better, but the library has just bought this one so far).

I'm glad that such cool people are thinking hard about the intersection of culture and technology (and moreover, acting on their beliefs as artists - Doctorow releases all his novel under Creative Commons licenses). I will definitely be adding him to my collection of information science-y blogs and checking out his novels. ( )
