This book by Leonard Shlain is a great work of imagination. I have just finished reading it and what a ride - he ties together so many dynamics of my past reading it is only now that you can "see" and consider the links and oppositions between cultural movements e.g. Taoism/Confucianism, Athens/sparta, id/superego goes on and on. Thanks for the reference you should make the effort to haul Leonard Shlain into a bigger dialogue with CDB's.

Some might say that an imagination is an amorphous thing but the web is teaching us to imagine more broadly and more widely and Leonard Shlain has given us an historical grounding to this new environment so that we can be as you might say "metrosexual".

Tim - I never thought of asking Shalin to come over to the CDB side. But I had the same response in reading the man's book.

Excuse the French - Fucking Amazing was my rating.

And the thing is to reach out beyond the boundaries to the accepted and everyday.

In many ways and I do hope this does not sound arrogant - its what we did on CDB - we took an holistic view of what media/business/people meant to eachother at a moment of profound change.

That however does seem to be quite unusual.

Thanks for posting Tim
