Those who probably should read this book probably won't, and I'd love to get some of my workmates to read it to learn that I don't make some of the terms I use up. Sorely needs an index for the paper version.

It's basically a series of essays on various internet terms and their roots, made me smile, sometimes wryly, at it and I enjoyed dipping in. Not something to read in a lump but one or two chapters at a time. ( )
