Editorial Reviews

Review

"The Best Technology Writing 2010 is a thought-provoking smorgasbord of technological delights."--PopMatters

(PopMatters)

The impact of digital technology dominates this excellent collection of essays. As Dibbell points out, we now rely so much on digital devices, from BlackBerrys to iPads, that "we're all cyborgs now".
(P.D. Smith The Guardian 2010-11-30)

"The Best Technology Writing 2010 is full of good stories. . . . Julian Dibbell has chosen well."—Alan Jacobs, Books & Culture
(Alan Jacobs Books & Culture)

“Julian Dibbell has taken the widest possible view of what technology is, which is a wise move indeed. Mixed in with writing about Facebook and erasure of an online identity are articles about the design of a stove that might be economical, efficient and sustainable, and an attempt to overcome the fear of flying."—Kel Munger, Colorado Springs Independent
(Kel Munger Colorado Springs Independent 2010-10-21)

First of all, the book *is* on Kindle. Second of all, it's a fantastic read and I'm not a necessarily a techie. See more about it on the LA Times Roundup of Best of books. Not sure what my favorite article is but the tweet from space was a really nice touch.

The book is ok. I only ordered this because I need it for my English class for college. I have liked the stories I have read so far, but never would have ordered it if I didn't need it for school
