Book Review: The World is Flat By Thomas Friedman

I recently read the non-fictional book titled The World is Flat: A Brief History of the Twenty-first Century by Thomas Friedman. As an extremely avid reader, this book quickly became one of my favorites. Friedman's expansive knowledge on such current events and social evolution coupled with his style of writing makes this, some what daunting book, manageable I believe for almost any reader, at least by the high school level. Now, if you are the type that loves to expand their knowledge on almost random things like reading books such as Blink, Freakonomics or even random articles such as this one, then this book is for you.

The World is Flat, focuses on the growing idea of how seamlessly easier it has became to obtain knowledge, to come into contact with our neighbors, in the city and across the ocean, so on and so forth. By even being able to come across this article, it can be assumed that you have at least enough computer literacy to understand this growing trend. What Friedman does however, is take this somewhat blurry image of this internet, of the politics today, 9/11 and basically the entirety of our short Twenty-first Century and presents in a manner that is, mind the cliché, crystal-clear.

Their seems to be an ongoing theme of a call-to-arms, a call to action throughout the book, to what he believes is necessary for the growth of civilization in general and with all of his expansive examples and extremely focused details, throughout the book, it is almost impossible to disagree.

Let's think about the title of the book, The World is Flat. The title itself is a blatant farce. However Einstein once stated "Imagination is more important than knowledge." With a bit of imagination, and bit of reading of Friedman's thoughts, you just might come to agree that the World is indeed, Flat.This article was written by Jonel Cordero, owner ofGrocerteria Networks.

Making a Computer Club at school need name and suggestions and other things read on pls?

Hi I'm making a Computer club at school but it's sort of a sub-club of a Video Editing Club... Anyway we need a name for it I was thinking G80 cause it's the first nVidia Core to have Direct X10 and also this is the first computer (Hardware) club in my school... Also I need to know what I should start it off with, like what hardwares should I get since there is a probability of the items being damaged... This club is about fixing and building PCs in the Hardware area, and we also need a name can please contribute? Thanks.

Best Answer...


first year group >> CyberTechMasters Club I
2nd group >>> CyberTEchMasters Club II
then just keep on adding the III, IV, V in the future..

I am suggesting CyberTechMasters because is sounds like a combination for software on video editing, and building PC.
