Against Cyber Utopia
Evgeny Morozov maintains his tech-pessimism:
Internet enthusiasts argue that the Web has made organizing easier. But this is only partially true; taking full advantage of online organizing requires a well-disciplined movement with clearly defined goals, hierarchies, and operational procedures (think of Barack Obama's presidential campaign). But if a political movement is disorganized and unfocused, the Internet might only expose and publicize its vulnerabilities and ratchet up the rancor of internecine conflicts. This, alas, sounds much like Iran's disorganized green movement.
