2) Web 2.0 Is Reminiscent Of Marx: Second-Generation Internet Is Dangerously Seductive: This column was written by Andrew Keen. en CBS news.
“The ancients were good at resisting seduction. Odysseus fought the seductive song of the Sirens by having his men tie him to the mast of his ship as it sailed past the Siren’s Isle. Socrates was so intent on protecting citizens from the seductive opinions of artists and writers that he outlawed them from his imaginary republic. “
