Adam Thierer on Evgeny Morozov


Evgeny Morozov's To Save Everything, Click Here effectively pricks the bubble of irrational exuberance that has always accompanied new digital technologies, Adam Thierer reports. But Morozov refuses to quit while he's ahead. Instead, he unsuccessfully labors to convince us that the very concept of "the Internet" holds no inherent meaning and that we have all been suffering from a sort of mass delusion about its existence. Worse yet, he offers only a limited and sometimes contradictory roadmap for building a better world and integrating new information technologies into it.
