this review of the book republic.com is great, and includes an email from bill gates about how he never claimed 640K was enough. it sounds like an interesting book, at least as far as its hypotheses about the requirements for both unexpected and shared experiences in a “well-functioning system of free expression.” obviously i don't think much of the notion that the internet generally acts against these requirements, although you can easily see little eddies where it does.
