A partial review of ‘The Hyperlinked Society'

I actually like books a lot, and find it an endless frustration that they are not online. It's not so much a cost thing - though it is, a bit, because i can't afford nearly what I want at bookstore prices - but it's also availability - our local Chapters has basically given up on its science and philosophy sections (giving us stuff like 'The God Gene' and 'The Tao of Pooh' as poor pop-sci substitutes) and it's the only bookstore in town. So I'll not see a potentially good read like The Hyperlinked Society for a long time, if ever. There's a lot of good stuff on the web (thank goodness) but it's really really hard to do proper work when key pieces are just missing from the scene.
