Some months ago, someone here on Clayart mentioned (and recommended) the
book "Amusing Ourselves to Death" by author/philosopher Neil Postman. I
bought it on that recommendation alone, and frankly it was some of the best
reading I've had in years.

His more recent work "Technopoly" (1993, Vintage/Random House, ISBN
0-679-74540-8) is even better -- I would even suggest it as "required
reading" for anyone who takes this very medium (computers) seriously.

In any case, MANY THANKS to whomever it was who first suggested Mr.
Postman's work! 'Twas like Christmas in advance!
