Who We are Reading:

Mary Eisenhart, the longtime editor of "MicroTimes: California's Computer Magazine," and a HarriOak resident, has published a review of Nicholas Carr's "The Big Switch," in the San Francisco Chronicle. Carr, the former editor of the Harvard Business Review turned technology pundit, lays out an argument, cogently summarized by Eisenhart, that technology can oppress as much as it can liberate. Check out Mary's review here and feel free to log into the HarriOak Yahoo group she helps moderate here. "The Big Switch," is destined to be one of the most influential technology books of the year.
