I just finished Nick Carr's The Big Switch last night. This is definitely essential reading for 2008! I have to admit that Nick Carr was one of the names in the Gillmor Gang 3 years ago I had never heard of before.

Waiting for a copy of Does IT matter? to arrive.

Excerpt from the official book site: "A hundred years ago, companies stopped generating their own power with steam engines and dynamos and plugged into the newly built electric grid. The cheap power pumped out by electric utilities didn't just change how businesses operate. It set off a chain reaction of economic and social transformations that brought the modern world into existence. Today, a similar revolution is under way. Hooked up to the Internet's global computing grid, massive information-processing plants have begun pumping data and software code into our homes and businesses. This time, it's computing that's turning into a utility."
