    1. ในยุคที่อินเทอร์เน็ตและโซเชียลมีเดียผ่านยุคที่คนจำนวนมาก "เห่อ" ว่าลำพังเทคโนโลยีจะสร้างโลกพระศรีอาริย์ให้เราได้ The Big Disconnect ก็เป็นหนังสืออีกเล่มในแนว skeptic ที่เตือนให้เห็นอันตราย [...]

    2. In The Big Disconnect, Micah Sifry provides a clear, concise, and important perspective on how the internet and related technologies have yet to transform the practice of politics in the Unite States. As the editor of techpresident and co-founder/curator of Personal Democracy Forum, he has closely tracked the role of the internet as both a technology and cultural movement through several presidential election cycles and complicated legislative battles in the past 10-15 years. Sifry takes a stand [...]

    3. Much more about functional politics — specifically political organizing and activist groups — than I thought. Though I did learn some valuable lessons about how the current organizers operate online, and the criticisms therewith. The fourth chapter brushes on political theory, but only slightly. If you would like to get a broad introduction to political action on the web, this would be a good introductory text.

    4. A very smart discussion of the past present and future of the web's influence on politics and change. Micah Sifry includes interviews and perspectives from an incredible array of the digital world's leading thinkers, no surprise, since he curates one of the smartest conferences on application of the internet and smart phones to politics, government, transparency and civics.

    5. Started a second read (listen this time) when became PAL for a new teammate and this is the book he chose.

    6. Very readable look at how the internal mechanisms of different kinds of communication shape interactions. A look at political campaign website/email organization, data lists, and how various campaigns have controlled and/or inspired their grassroots level members; a look at how many progressive cause groups organize people and communication and how they make decisions (and who has what kind of input); and the fourth chapter contains brief looks at various experiments at communication/organizatio [...]

    7. A great catalogue of internet tools used by politicians and their effects on the democracy process. In Europe this is still in infancy - but we can see our future now.

    8. Very happy with the book. Inspired me to read 10 more. If you are new to this topic, it's best to start with.
