THE NEW GLOBAL WE.

The Big Switch – I am not a fan

Posted in Big Thought, People, Reviews by Harsha on March 14, 2008

The underlying point of this book (which was a very quick read) is that the Internet is just like electricity. I agree and disagree with the author on various points he makes in the book because while he is right, he is also dead wrong. That is all I have to offer at this point.

The average reader like me will love connecting the dots between the Internet and electricity but that is pretty much it – I was pretty surprised that Wired chose to glorify the book.
