By M. Morris on June 1, 2013
Format: Kindle Edition
Until I read this book, I hadn't seen this series of important issues covered *anywhere* in such a simple and straightforward way. While the book did leave me with a couple of unanswered questions, it's friendly, accessible, and contains information that is essential to understanding what is usually a pretty complex set of issues. Now, it's a lot easier to see how they all fit together. Thank goodness, because dude, I've been looking for something like this.

Embracing Disruption explains how disruptive technology and the Cloud have landed us in a new world where we must understand what's going on and protect our freedoms in order to live in a better, stronger, more expressive society. If you've had trouble following the news items about tech and privacy and Internet freedom, this is a really good place to start!

The book is a very pleasant read with very engaging ideas. The artwork is quite fun to look at as well! This is a fast read that paints a clear picture of how future technology will look like. It predicts what works by describing what has failed. The book engages the reader to think about how to design technologies for the progress of humanity as a whole. Concepts presented in the book apply in the design of technology, laws, and even business.

This book presents ideas that may be remembered, centuries from now, as the basis for public good as technology moves forward. I highly recommend this book.

Format: Paperback
As someone that works in the tech industry and is painfully familiar with terms like cloud, disrupt, and innovate, I found the book a delightful and fun summary of complex and technical ideas. The illustrations, layman terminology, and short chapters make the information easy for quick consumption.

Highly recommended that needs a quick debrief on current tech subjects. Points for the authors freedom of information and stance on intellectual property.

Format: Paperback
Covering technological, governmental and philosophical issues of changing technology, this book is a great introduction to and lauchpad for thoughts about how the internet, web services, and ubiquitous communication has changed our lives, both positively and negatively.

I'd recommend it to both technologists who want to open up their horizons, and normal people who want both retrospective and prospective views of our changing digital lives.
