In Uncommon Sense, Peter Cochrane's follow up to the radical 108Tips for Time Traveller, Peter explains how very simple analysisallows the prediction of such debacles as the 3G auction and thesubsequent collapse of an industry, whilst simple-minded thinkingis dangerous in the context of a world that is predominantlychaotic and out of control.

People balked when Peter suggested a wholesale move to eWorking,the rise of email and text messaging, and the dotcom regimemirroring the boom and bust cycle of the industrial revolution. Hispredictions of the use and growth of mobile devices andcommunication, or use of chip implants for humans to replace IDcards, passports, and medical records, or iris scanners andfingerprint readers - were all seen as unlikely. Today they are areality.

How then will the world react to his predictions as set out inUncommon Sense of a networked world of distributed ignorance andsharing overcoming an old world of concentrated skill and control?To everything becoming 'Napsterised' in every dimension, wherestorage and processing power cost nothing, and become connectedwithout the help of the old network companies? A world whereindividuals create their own networks, where laws of copyright andresale, and old business models have to be changed as giantindustries are dragged kicking and screaming out of the 19thCentury and into the 21st?

Peter Cochrane poses and answers questions, suggests solutions,and raises red flags on issues that need to be addressed. Tables,diagrams, pictures and illustrations generously support all of thetext, with the most difficult aspects illustrated by simulationsand other material on a CD and links to a web site with an ongoingexpansion of the themes addressed.

This book was an extremely interesting read. It gives you lots to think about in our computer-centric world. Cochrane may come off as a little odd at first, but the more you read the more interesting points he brings up. It gives the reader a perspective that you wouldn't get from the more mainstream tech editorials. Definitely worth the read.

This series of essays from global thought leader Peter Cochrane is required reading for business technologists. Cochrane addresses the issues we think about-and don't think about-in ways that offer new insights into everyday challenges. His observations on giving presentations in "Salesmanship" will make people think twice about getting up in front of a room. These essays, which cover everything from security to online shopping to management to mobility (and beyond), are infused with creativity. Cochrane's ability to see around corners, and to look at the world just a bit differently in ways that ultimately make sense, will re-invigorate thinking and leave us better prepared for the next challenge.

As I rule I do not care for essay collections but I found this book to be completely worthwhile. Starting with a snapshot of his own educational issues, Cochrane opened my eyes to new possibilities in learning, and how to share ideas with others. Subsequent articles on topics that I was familiar with became fresh ideas and I found that I was not only able to follow (prehaps for the first time) but actually appreciate the various nuances on topics that I normally would not consider. The book uses both text and visuals to make clear some of the technical points and helps tie together issues ranging from learning to technology and all with a brilliant focus on business management.

I'm not sure how Cochrane can contain such a diversity of thought within a single mind but I'm very thankful that he can. The broad sweep of these essays has truly opened my eyes to the inexorable and interwoven position of technology in all aspects of our lives. Technology is not "out there" it's "in here". I feel more awake, better educated and perhaps a little afraid. Read this book to kick-start your brain, evolve your own "uncommon sense" and get involved in the dialogue. Cochrane is expert at illuminating our shadowy future. The issues addressed are some of the most important of our times. I highly recommend this book if you want to know what technology "means".
