Book Menage Day Two: Thomas Keenan's Technocreep

Book Menage Day One: Thomas Keenan's Technocreep and John Scalzi's Old Man's War

Welcome to Book Menage 2015!

This week we'll be discussing Thomas Keenan's Technocreep: The Surrender of Privacy and the Capitalization of Intimacy and John Scalzi's novel Old Man's War. Today we'll discuss the books generally, then we'll have a few questions about each book individually, and we'll have a short wrap-up. Ready to discuss?*

1. Were either of these books that you would have chosen to read on your own? Why or why not?

2. How did you feel about "the future," after reading one or both of these books?

*I used to answer first, to get things going, but sometimes I worry that I skew the discussion that way. So today I'm hanging back a bit.
