Item Description...
A provocative and visionary look at our new digital society, from "the most powerful woman in the Net-erati" ("The New York Times Magazine").
Welcome to "Release 2.1, " Esther Dyson's fascinating exploration of life in our new digital society. In this provocative and timely book, Dyson--an entrepreneur, high-tech industry analyst, government adviser, and Net expert--examines the impact and implications of cyberspace, challenging us to think intelligently about its effect on every aspect of our private and public lives, from businesses to government to education. Written with an insider's knowledge and ready wit, and filled with anecdotes about the movers and shakers behind the products and politics of the computer industry, "Release 2.1" presents us with a hard-hitting message: With the advent of the Internet, we all have both the opportunity and the obligation to shape the new rules we want to live by.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
You'll pay to hear what you already know!  Aug 21, 2002
An old Subgenius adage goes "You'll pay to hear what you already know!" So Dyson apparently decided she could write the /best/ book ever by writing things /everyone/ knows. "Email will change business communication'? Oh my God, Esther, thanks for the news flash! What's next for Release 4.0? A timely pensée on how one day we will all own VCRs (that stands for "video-cassette recorder"!), and how this will change everything, /everything/?

How about this wild futuristic scenario: in the future, you (YOU!) will be able to make a book by just buying a microcassette recorder and some blank tape, taking it home and taping your unorganized frappucino-addled ramblings. You'll mail the tapes to a typing service, and have them send the MSWord documents /right/ to the printers. What about editors? In the future, everything is fast, no time for editing! Have the publisher bankroll the printing of a few hundred thousand, and wham! "Just-in-time" publishing! The question is, just in time for what?

Boring...  Jul 23, 2001
Coming from a technical background and working in the exciting medium which the Internet continues to be, I tend to love most books on the topic. I have to say that I haven't had such a hard time (because of how boring it is) going through a book in quite a while. In fact, I'm selling it... Anyone?
Interesting, informing, easy to read  Jan 7, 2000
Esther Dyson is called the "First Lady of the Internet". She is a specialist in her topic, and no matter what page you're reading: You feel that she's a really competent and skilful writer. I've learned some important aspects about Online-Communities what is my special interest. Unfortunately she doesn't give a survey about the social psychological research about these communities, and it's not really a scientific book. But what I enjoy most, are the permanent "mind-links" between real life and virtual life. It's more similar than we thought before.
Great Book  Aug 28, 1999
Release 2.1 is a great book for how the internet is changing todays world. Many issues are brought up about the proper use and application of the internet and its rescources. A must read for all those interested in the evolution of the internet.
Gas Bag of a Book  Jun 30, 1999
This book leaves a very important question unanswered: why have I even heard of Esther Dyson, and why does anyone care what she thinks? She is the Zsa-Zsa Gabor of the internet: everyone has heard of her, but noone knows why. Sure, she's got the buz, and she rubs elbows with all the right people, but when you sit down to take an extended look at what's inside that head of hers, you find a muddled stew of banal, unimpressive thoughts.
