Geeky Books for Everyone!
- Six Degrees of Separation--a good introduction to network theory. We actually used this book in a freshman writing class.
- Linked--another network theory book, but specific to the Internet. I liked this so much I've read it twice and am using it in my dissertation.
- Emergence--I'm in the middle of this one and I like it so far.
- Everything Bad is Good for You--Another Steven Johnson book. I like the message of this book. It makes me feel better about my Internet habits.
- The Search--a book all about search. There were parts of this that I didn't like, but it's still fascinating.
- The Cluetrain Manifesto--one of my favorite geeky books. There are a couple of other books that are similar to this that I'd love to read--maybe over the break.
- The Tipping Point--I have read this one twice two.
In case you're wondering, I did this after I'd worked on my dissertation for two hours.
