The New Machine Age

And it just so happens that the authors were on WBUR's OnPoint with Tom Ashbrook, which originates out of Boston (The BU stands for Boston University. In Seattle the NPR station was KUOW for U of Washington). The authors are also from MIT, which is in Cambridge, just across the river from Boston.

But enough geography!

It was a good show for those who are interested in these kinds of things:

I am enjoying the book, too.

BTW Chris, I found one of those little libraries not a block from my house! I took a picture of it too.

He's the man.
