Required reading for the would-be digerati


The list above was a sidebar to Michiko Kakutani's magisterial March 21, 2010 New York Times Arts & Leisure section front page essay titled "Texts Without Context."

Full disclosure: I've read only two of the books listed above, those by Manjoo and Keen.

On the other hand, a 2002 book authored by me (below)


is very similar in concept to that of David Shields' controversial new manifesto, only mine was published by iUniverse to the sound of one hand clapping and didn't get any ink, and so disappeared down the Amazon memory hole where it's currently โ€” hold on a sec while I get my scanning tunneling microscope warmed up, the number's so far down โ€” 1,434,514.

With a bullet.


No matter, there's plenty of upside from where I'm standing.

Even if there isn't a whole lot of daylight.

No Kindle version :-( I'll buy one when the ebook is published.

Hey, I have had my copy for six years. I was under the impression it was a required purchase for employment. :)
Also, Ana, Dr. Stirt has written two books.

Just ordered me one. "Looked inside" and liked it. Even got me a signed copy and expect it'll be worth a fortune someday. Cool.
