The World is Flat

Tonight, I  read the first few chapters of  The World is Flat: A Brief History of the Twenty-First Century by Thomas L. Friedman.  So far, it’s extremely interesting.   In it, Friedman explains how the world has been "flattened" by new technology.  Workers in India and China can compete with our workers.  Companies have truly become international   New software makes it easier to communicate across borders. 

I say it’s great that we in the United States can communicate with others around the world! 

Thank you, sanjay at bangalore.it_guy dot com, for the pirated Friedman e-book and hooking me up with the NY Times’ bestsellers’ torrent site.

    Neil could you send me a link to The New York Times Bestsellers torrent site? I’m trying to get hold of a copy of “The world is flat”

    Sorry, Rahul. It was a joke — I guess not a very clear one. But I would be curious if you actually did find one.

    But I’m still old-fashioned with my books, anyway. I’ve tried reading an e-book, and it just wasn’t the same…
