Tom Standage:

"Writing in the Wall" (2013)

(Copyright © 2018 Piero Scaruffi | Terms of use )
The aim of the book is to show that social media preexisted the Internet and that the issues associated with today's social media (fake news, censorship, etc) have been around for centuries. The book really takes off with the chapter on the coffee house and peaks with the story of the newspapers. These chapters are full of details and insight.
