Sue Halpern’s book review/essay on mind and the internet

It’s here. May be behind a firewall for some of our readers. The three books reviewed are:

World Wide Mind: The Coming Integration of Humanity, Machines, and the Internet
by Michael Chorost                                                  
Free Press, 242 pp., $26.00
The Filter Bubble: What the Internet Is Hiding from You
by Eli Pariser                                                  
Penguin, 294 pp., $25.95
You Are Not a Gadget: A Manifesto
by Jaron Lanier                                                  
Vintage, 240 pp., $15.00 (paper)

I haven’t read any of these yet, but probably will. In any case, Halpern’s review is really excellent, both for its neuroscientific sophistication and for its healthy skepticism about the future of the brain-machine interface.
