This book wasn't quite everything that I had hoped for.Specifically, I was looking for some insight into 'social tagging'.The topics it did cover (p2p, reputation systems, wireless connectivity) were pretty good.

Rheingold comments on pretty much interesting stuff on those emergent technologies (wireless, web services, linux) and their mandatory influence on our societies, good and bad one, wireless talking, this technology opens a brave new world for people, it's moving pretty much fast. The question would be then: how well we are prepared as human society for it ?? ... are we ready for digest it ?? .... pretty deep investigation work.
