It shows the birth of a relationship between the new millionaires of the information age and the Washington insiders that will shape the politics of the twenty-first century.

Packed with exclusive, behind-the-scenes reporting, How to Hack a Party Line chronicles a high-stakes experiment: the creation of Silicon Valleys first political machine. The book explores the often contradictory forces behind Silicon Valleys political awakening-a mixture of naïve libertarian sentiment, northern California social attitudes, aggressive business instincts, and a raw desire for power. Simultaneously it looks at Centrist new Democrats who have left behind the liberal coalitions of the industrial economy and are seeking a new identity in the values proclaimed by high-tech capitalists: growth, globalism, efficiency, and innovation.How to Hack a Party Line combines a colorful, character-rich narrative with serious reporting and political ans .iis.

It asks what values prosper when high-tech business becomes the metaphor for society-and how, in the twenty-first century, democracy will respond.Sara Miles has covered the politics of Silicon Valley for Wired and Wired News. Her work has also appeared in numerous publications, including The New Yorker, The New York Times, and Out Magazine.

She lives in San Francisco.
