Very nice reading. What Lanier says on technology, lock-in, social networks, web 2.0, human behaviors on the internet, designs, etc, is very interesting and meets my point of view; well, it actually made my point of view sounder, giving me very nice
inputs. However, since he rejects Marx I reckon he is stuck in some fetishism: that a relevant part of Silicon Valley is driven by some crazy ideology may be true, but imho there is a clear lack of a materialistic (Marxist :P) foundation of Silicon Valley, technology, social networks, and so on. Anyway, a must-read.
