While I agree that *Silicon Snake Oil* makes some good points (and some great quotes), I'd advise anyone who reads it to ALSO read (IMMEDIATELY, if not sooner) *Being Digital* by Nicholas Negroponte for balance...or maybe even Gates *The Road Ahead.* Then, kick back, relax (maybe take time out to read a good novel--or even Stoll's first book, *The Cuckoo's Egg* which I think reads like a great spy novel) and think about the role of technology in your own life and in your own profession--good and bad--and come to terms with your role in the digital revolution. Personally, I think there's more than enough room for technology AND books in my life and in my profession, and I love the challenge of figuring out what fits when and where. I also understand that may be different for different people.
