I was thrilled to see Barefoot into Cyberspace reviewed by Steven Poole in the Guardian last Saturday. He writes:
“Flash published” in paperback and electronically, and bravely self-described as a “zeitgest book”, this is a brisk travelogue (with some awkward local colour) of interviews with modern techno-dissidents. There are leather-coated Germans breaking the security of the GSM network; hippy-hacker pioneer Stewart Brand (the 1960s acid testers, as Hogge puts it, “got tired of tripping and uploaded themselves to a new electronic frontier”); campaigners for “electronic freedom” and citizen privacy; and hacker-intellectuals, such as the particularly interesting Ethan Zuckerman.
Read the review in full here. One day I want to be as cool as Steven Poole.
