We the Media
I was asked to read this earlier for a blurb, and was completely taken with it - it's the sort of book that I will be encouraging others to read for years to come, the sort of book that underpins both my work at EFF (because so much of Dan's thesis about democratized reportage hinges on the importance of a free and open network) and my work as an sf writer (because Dan's vision of the future is so compelling.
Here's the blurb he wrote for the book:
Clear-eyed, hype-free and for all that prescient and inspiring. We the Media is Gillmor's heroic effort to bridge the tech-obsessed polyannas like me and the skeptical grownups whose hardened attitutudes won't admit of this stuff. He's done us all a service by writing it for us.
