Finally finished this one! Usually I LOVE books about the net, but this has to be the worst one I read, so far. Although Cliff Stoll's book is probably a close second, at least he was able to hold my attention.
If you HAVE to read this one for a college class, good luck to ya! Otherwise, it's best left alone. The first 100 or so pages seemed to go on and on about "generativity", saying the same thing over and over and over.... Aaarrgghhh!
