Very thought provoking,
This review is from: The Net Delusion: The Dark Side of Internet Freedom (Hardcover)
Not a lot of clear solutions offered, but Morozov's examination of the many ways in which internet connectivity, transparency and assumed privacy can wretchedly backfire--and how governments like ours have often encourage activity that has harmed progressive social movements--is often counterintuitive but almost always revelatory. The chapter on why YouTube is a dictator's best friend is worth the price alone.
