The Erotic Engine: How Pornography has Powered Mass Communication, from Gutenberg to Google

The Erotic Engine: How Pornography has Powered Mass Communication, from Gutenberg to Google - Patchen Barss Interesting read! A little of it was kind of disturbing!

The first third of the book was pre-Gutenberg, but once the computer stuff started happening, it was hard to put down. Porn has driven technology, so I guess we have to give it some credit in the respect that most of us can benefit from broadband, 500 cable channels, etc! He covers all the topics like the vcr format battle (but not the dvd battle), cable, pay channels, PayPal and the like, etc.

The future seems really strange though, the stuff that is coming down the pike! I won't give any spoilers, you are going to have to read this one yourself! :-)
