Submitter: 2007 doesn’t seem like that long ago to me, but it is internet light years! I find it hilarious that books were published ABOUT websites, forcing you to look through the book, then type in the (often long) address if you wanted to see the site.
I think this book is generally terrible*** and is a terrible book for a college library! I pulled this book off the shelf yesterday.
*** Some of the sites are stupid, but others are just being mocked because the author doesn’t seem to understand their usefulness or that others might be interested. In the commentary about the camel website, the author can’t seem to comprehend different cultures/locations–the shocked tone about camel racing, as if it is so different from horse racing! The women in packaging site is given a stupidity level of 8, but it was a resource for women trying to enter a (presumably male-dominated) field. Why is that stupid?
Holly: These books have such a limited shelf life. This is an odd choice for a college library, for sure! And what does the Peep® bunny on the cover have to do with anything?? Peeps® are awesome, not stupid!
