The year’s best writing on tech: a collection as imaginative and compelling as its dynamic subject

“This book is not just an illuminating and instructive guide to our high-tech frontier. It’s also a great testimony to the power of that most ancient of technologies, the written word.”

—Steven Johnson, author of Everything Bad is Good for You

Together the essays in The Best of Technology Writing 2007 capture the versatility and verve of technology writing today.

The Best of Technology Writing 2007 will appeal to anyone who enjoys stellar writing.
