The Moon is a Harsh Mistress by Robert A. Heinlein
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The weaponization of social networks foreseen in 1965.
It amazes me how accurate Heinlein's vision was on the effects of technology on everyday life, particularly on the way it can be abused to manipulate public opinion. The prose does not feel to be 50 years old, bit it is. The Moon is a Harsh Mistress is a great read, a real eye opener for things like AI (Artificial Intelligence), Social Networking and of course real science.
