Lets continue to discuss this book and I will also post another discussion for everyone to propose a new book to read while we talk about Entangled: Technology and the Transformation of Performance.
If you don't already have the book, Check at your local library or order online. Lets take two weeks to read the book (if you haven't already) and then we'll spend two weeks discussing the book and voting on the next book to read.
