Breakpoint: Why the Web will Implode, Search will be Obsolete, and Everything Else you Need to Know about Technology is in Your Brain by Jeff Stibel

This book deals with the structure, function and development of networks. Drawing on specific aspects of biological, technical and virtual networks, such as the brain and the internet, the author suggests that these networks, however different they may appear, actually have a lot in common. He believes that if we learn how the organic network of the brain works, we can apply those findings to the internet and make it intelligent.

  • Students of biology and computer science
  • Anyone who wants to know where the internet is heading
  • Anyone interested in how the brain works

Jeff Stibel is a brain scientist and entrepreneur. He is CEO of the Dun & Bradstreet Credibility Corp and currently serves on the boards of the Brown University Entrepreneurship Program and the University of Southern California’s Innovation Institute.
