Everything Bad is Good...
10.25.00 - Mark
There's an upcoming book called Everything Bad is Good for You, and it really looks interesting. A number of sites are linking to a NYTimes excerpt from the book covering TV. I haven't had the time to do more than skim it, but based on what I saw, as well as a post at the author's blog which is a similar example with video games it looks good.
I'm not sure if its one I'm going to buy, but I'm certainly going to try and get my hands on it. The arguments are too intriguing unfortunately that probably means its going to float up and down the digital todo list I've got on my laptop until I forget why its on there.
