Writing about Silicon Valley in the rise and fall of the dot-com era would have been an interesting time.
Wired Magazine, The Industry Standard, Federated Media: These are only three of the things that John Battelle has done with the Web in the past ten years. And there’s more to come.
In this interview with Andrew Keen, Battelle casts a keen eye on what is past, and passing and to come in the Brave New Internet. Google, the subject of his latest book, The Search: How Google and Its Rivals Rewrote the Rules of Business and Transformed Our Culture is only one of these.
