Phi Beta Iota: Howard Rheingold has been one of the top guns on tools for thinking since his first book in the 1980’s, Tools for Thought: The History and Future of Mind-Expanding Technology, since revised and reprinted and highly recommended. All of his other books are recommended, in terms of understanding collective intelligence and the emergence of the world brain, we recommend Smart Mobs: The Next Social Revolution, and Net Smart: How to Thrive Online.
