Adina recently finished Interface by Stephen Bury (a pen name for Neal Stephenson), and wonders whether the outcome would be any different with weblogs:
Will peer communication yield more information to move the boulders of distortion, or simply be turned into rivulets of spin and counterspin? Some of both, I think.
I tend to think Adina’s right. I don’t disagree with her assessment of the book as a bit formulaic, but that doesn’t diminish its enjoyment factor. As I wrote a couple years ago, I really enjoyed it. Give it a look.
