    The Best of Technology Writing 2008proves that technology writing is a bona fide literary genre with some of the most stylish, compelling, and just plain readable work in journalism today. The third volume in this annual series,The Best of Technology Writing 2008covers a fascinating mix of topics---from a molecular gastronomist's recipe for the perfect gin and tonic; to "the Mechanism," an ancient Greek artifact that might be the world's first laptop computer; to the new generation gap caused by parents' and kids' dramatically different ideas about privacy online. One of the world's most acclaimed and accomplished science and technology journalists, Clive Thompson writes regularly for theNew York Times Magazine, Wired, New York Magazine,and other publications. He also runs the wildly popular tech-culture blog collisiondetection.net. DIGITALCULTUREBOOKS is a collaborative imprint of the University of Michigan Press and the University of Michigan Library.
