(REAL NAME)

2.  Say Everything: How Blogging Began, What It's Becoming, and Why It Matters by Scott Rosenberg

Going to Extremes: How Like Minds Unite and Divide
3.  Going to Extremes: How Like Minds Unite and Divide by Cass R. Sunstein

The Search: How Google and Its Rivals Rewrote the Rules of Business and Transformed Our Culture
5.  The Search: How Google and Its Rivals Rewrote the Rules of Business and Transformed Our Culture by John Battelle
The list author says:
  "Batelle's book is a much better book on Google then Jarvis'. It's a history, not a 'how they think'. But without all the bias and the mystic aura, you end up having a lot more insights on how the Search business works. To understand search is to understand how the internet *really* works. If you must read only one book on Google, this is the one."

7.  Here Comes Everybody: The Power of Organizing Without Organizations by Clay Shirky
