Thought provoking but much too long
on 15 October 2009
The revolutionary wealth comes from the knowledge economy that is the third wave of man's economic development, following the agricultural and industrial waves. Being based on knowledge rather than consumable resources the knowledge wealth is available to all and almost inexhaustible. At least that is the authors' thesis. There is an interesting discussion of prosumerism - a sophisticated term for DIY - where a product is produced by the consumer. There are many, indeed too many, examples. Why do such books have to be four times longer than necessary. The length smothers the importance of its message.
