Hey, this is a very cool book, except for my own minor part. Here's Allison Fine who does great work.
I'm very excited to announce the publication of Rebooting America, an anthology I worked on with my colleagues at the Personal Democracy Forum. Rebooting includes forty-four essays by political and digital luminaries including Craig Newmark (of craigslist), Esther Dyson, Joe Trippi, Newt Gingrich and many others — including me! Each essay has a unique central idea but all are infused with the hopes of reenergizing, reorganizing, and reorienting our government for the Internet Age.
Rebooting America is more than a book, it is an “open source” experiment in new media publishing underwritten by the Schumann Center for Media and Democracy. Copies of the book are available as .pdfs for download for free at Rebooting.PersonalDemocracy.com. Every essay has been posted online with an invitation for readers to comment. Over the coming months, the book’s editors and authors will engage in dialogue with readers on the website, with the goal of improving and expanding on the ideas in the book.
