Netizenship & Information, Part 2

A very interesting book I once read related to the subject of my last post was ‘Republic.com’ by Cass Sunstein. Here is the link to the amazon.com page about the follow-up called Republic 2.0. In the book, Sunstein, whose authored so many incredibly interesting titles that I want to read more by him, makes a very good point that rather than information overkill the trend of subscriber news/information services that shelters us from information we don’t want and provides us with the kind we like, threatens the proper functioning of society. Sunstein is a legal mind and argues very clearly, making a somewhat dramatic point. I highly recommend the book.
