Submitter: This book is so dated. It asks you to use a typewriter.
Holly: This is a very…”interesting” book! It teaches you how to get revenge on your enemies through technology. Of course, there are much more secure systems in place these days, so I’m not sure a lot of the author’s suggestions are still options.
Here’s a fun ethical discussion point: would you buy this for a public library collection? I would – if it were reviewed somewhere, if a patron asked for it specifically (or something like it), and if it were up-to-date. I would weed it not for its subject matter, but for its complete lack of currency. It is cataloged as humor, not technology, and humor is where I would put it.
Mary: Of course Holly would be ALL OVER this book. She gave me a lovely Christmas ornament with an “annoy-a-tron” inside. Now that is an evil genius! Have someone you want to torture? I suggest Think Geek for all high tech torturing needs.
