Book: Overselling the Web: Development and the Internet

By its presentation, you might think that Charles Kenny new book, Overselling the Web: Development and the Internet might be seen the product of a cyberskeptics. I’d rather call it the product of cyberbalance.

Just reading the preface and first chapter, the personal references (Juan Navas-Sabater, Richard Heeks or Michael Best, among others) and a cautious point of view the like of “yes, but…” clearly show that it is calm criticism — not destruction — what seems to lead the book.

Just as always, promise to review in deep if… if I can ;)
