The Future of the Internet - And How to Stop It

We just watched a videotaped presentation by Jonathan Zittrain who is the Professor of Internet Governance and Regulation at Oxford Internet Institute. His book titled “The Future of the Internet — And How to Stop It” seems like something we all want to read. a few quotes:

Jimbo Wales:
“Jonathan Zittrain does what no one has before—he eloquently and subtly pinpoints the magic that makes Wikipedia, and the Internet as a whole, work. The best way to save the Internet is to turn off your laptop until you”ve read this book.”—Jimbo Wales, Founder, Wikipedia

Lawrence Lessig:
“This book is fundamental. It will define the debate about the future of the Internet, long after we haven”t stopped it. Absolutely required reading.”—Lawrence Lessig, Professor, Stanford Law School, and author of Free Culture and The Future of Ideas
