Re: <nettime> No Soap! Radio?

Stahlman's is a pretty good critique of Eric Schmidt's and Jared Cohen's
"The New Digital Age," which features exemplar Internet successes,
Google, Amazon, Facebook and Apple. And blurbed enthusiastically in
advance by Bill Clinton, Tony Blair, Henry Kissinger, General Michael Hayden,
Madeleine Albright, Walter Isaacson, Robert B. Zoellick, Michael Bloomberg,
Brent Scowcroft, Richard Branson, et al.


It envisions the entire earth hynptized by cellphones and personal
media, overturning tyrants, advancing democracy, swarming public
discourse, and caring not at all about tech-wealth accumulation and
bountiful cooperation with global spy agencies. "If you have nothing
to hide, forget about privacy." Enjoy the toys.
