Like it or not, knowing how to make use of online tools without being overloaded with too much information is an essential ingredient to personal success in the twenty-first century. But how can we use digital media so that they make us empowered participants rather than passive receivers, grounded, well-rounded people rather than multitasking basket cases? In Net Smart, cyberculture expert Howard Rheingold shows us how to use social media intelligently, humanely, and, above all, mindfully.

The book promises to help folks find their way through the plethora of information and messaging on the web. Somewhat ironically, the writing is very verbose with a few useful hints scattered throughout the text, if you notice them....

I became wary as soon as I was faced with a 33 page "introduction".....

I skimmed most of it and it's on its way back today!
