oh, mate, such a sad ending. i enjoyed the deeper diving into the lore of this universe.

although, im a bit sad the "jump in time" between first and second book was so small. i would've love to see something more like an inter-generational saga lilith's brood's style. but, well, it is super good indeed anyway.

so excited to start the last book!

In Internet for the People, leading tech writer Ben Tarnoff offers an answer. The internet …

guess not what i was expecting

1 star

not saying the book is bad, more like pointless. despite the title, it just tells you about how the internet is NOT for the people (anymore?) has it ever been?). there's mentione on some good alternatives on different levels, but noting more. the seems vaguely radical, but the total lack of any mention of praxis or discussion around praxis make him sound just like any other reformist at the end of the day. so, yeah, disappointed.
