Social Media Revolution

There's a movement going on, and these people are tracking it.
Army of Davids by Glenn Reynolds  (instapundit)
(conservative)
Little Brother by Cory Doctorow (BoingBoing)
(liberal)
Transparent Society by David Brin (DavidBrin)
(pessimistic)
The Singularity is Near by Ray Kurzweil  (Kurzweilai)
(optimistic)

People may agree or disagree with the social labels I put on these four, but if you read those four books, and check in on the websites once in a while, (using the labels as filters) you will have a fairly solid foundation on at least four ways to see the near future, and a lot of the revolutions and social upheaval in the world will make a lot more sense.

and then there's this.
