    Nice. A cool way to tease a book. Harry Braverman and Adam Smith and a few people I’ve never heard of. I can’t wait. No Lewis Mumford or Walter J. Ong? What can that mean?

    Looks very interesting. Can’t wait to hear more.

    While we’re on the subject, you did an interview a couple years ago in which you listed 5 books you’d read recently that introduced me to great books by Tim Wu, Martin Ford, James Gleick and others. I read and go back to these all the time. I keep hoping you’ll do something similar sometime soon. Got any late summer reading suggestions?
