Modern Individualism in 'An Army of Davids'

My copy of Glenn Reynolds’s new book An Army of Davids: How Markets and Technology Empower Ordinary People to Beat Big Media, Big Government, and Other Goliaths arrived in the mail a few days ago.
I’ve not had time to read it yet, but I skimmed it at some length the other night, and it looks readable and very interesting. It also struck me as one of the most thoroughly pro-individualist books I’ve seen in recent years.
Hopefully we’ll be able to publish a formal review of the book soon at the Atlasphere. In the interim, John Podhoretz provides a pretty good review in the New York Post. It begins:

It’s only March, but I can guarantee you there won’t be a more exciting or inspiring book published this year than “An Army of Davids.” Glenn Reynolds, its author, is best known for the Web log called Instapundit, but he is also a musician, the creator of a record label, a law professor, an expert on space (he drafted a position paper on the matter for Al Gore’s 1988 campaign) and an unpublished novelist.
“An Army of Davids” is a book about how technology has freed people like Reynolds to pursue their interests in ways that would have been unthinkable 30 years ago. For example, Reynolds can record, mix and complete an album in his basement with a $1,500 computer and software written in Poland – a process once restricted to those with access to multimillion-dollar studios.
