About the Book
This book contains some new material, and some old. The foundation is a set of blog posts published on Lost in Transit and ‘net Work, edited and extended, so some of these essays will seem familiar if you read either these two blogs. Beyond these, however, there is new material that hasn’t been published before in the same area. Some of this material has been developed from presentations, and some from completely new areas of thought.
