IN THIS SUMMARY

In The Big Switch, Nicholas Carr draws a parallel between the development of electricity as a utility at the turn of the 20th century and the development of the Internet at the turn of the 21st century. Using electricity as an example, Carr shows how the Internet is on its way to being considered a utility that will improve productivity and reduce costs even more than it already has in its previous and current forms.
