Tom vs. The Digital-Optimist-Libertarians

March 26, 2007

Tom Slee has another post on chapter 11 of Chris Anderson’s book The Long Tail.

The Long Tail worldview is digital-optimist-libertarian, is characteristic of Silicon Valley – a culture called Cyberselfish in the book of the same name by Wired contributor Pauline Borsook.

Hey wait a sec…. I resemble that comment. Humph. Well not the Silicon Valley part but digital-optimist-libertarian, yup, yup, and yup. Cyberselfish huh… the subtitle of the book is “a Critical Romp Through the Terribly Libertarian Culture of High-Tech”. Looks like I have some reading to do.
