This is an older book now, and I read it many many years ago but re-read it this last couple of weeks. I enjoyed this book. Its believable (if a little dated now), and interesting. It certainly made me think more about the first amendment and how it affects dangerous products like cigarettes than I would have otherwise.
Kynan is an Australian I work with. He has an Australian flag in his cube, and it seems to me that he’s skirting on the edge of crazy US laws if he happens to move to one of those jurisdictions. I can’t imagine such laws passing in Mountain View, but I figure he deserves the warning anyways.
