The Web — This Time with People Power

Bill McKibben’s predictably left-leaning, lengthy piece in the current New York Review of Book is nominally about DailyKos and the rise of people-powered politics online, but it could be about social networks in general. It’s worth reading, whatever your politics, especially if you can do a mental search-replace for the political stuff and think more broadly about community and technology instead.
