Summary of A Public Apology
On Screwing Up by Not Questioning Assumptions
Today’s modus operandi need not be tomorrow’s for two of the seemingly most entrenched systems: the Internet and American politics.
Internet activist and blogger Ethan Zuckerman juxtaposes the Internet with the American political system to identify the ills common to both – design faults that seemed logical at the time of their creation but that are now invalid. With humor – and some colorful language – Zuckerman endeavors to demonstrate that today’s business as usual need not be tomorrow’s. getAbstract recommends his impassioned plea for society to question its existing assumptions.
In this summary, you will learn
- What ills afflict the Internet,
- How similar dysfunctions ail American politics and
- Why both systems are ripe for change.
