This is a thorough compilation of many vignettes that illustrate the spread of technology in our world and the potential to use technology, mostly computer-based technology. The author's encyclopedic knowledge is revealed as if you had met him at a never ending cocktail party. The anecdotes are interesting, many are not well known. Some companies, such as Apple, Google and for some reason, Cognizant, an IT outsourcer, receive many (admiring) mentions. The book is a fast read and will supply you with a year's worth of anecdotes- but not with an organizing framework, or a roadmap for how to leverage the content to address whatever challenges you may be facing. There are no diagrams or charts; many chapters are organized according to the type of anecdote.
However, the fundamental message is valid - technology will continue to have a big, likely increasing impact on our lives. We need to educate ourselves on its potential and risks. We have way too few people who are more interested in mastering how to use and control technology than in how to use Apple's latest products.
