A new book contends that technology has enabled regular people to be free of big corporations and government agencies and remake society.

The author of An Army of Davids: How Markets and Technology Empower the Little Guy to Beat Big Media, Big Government, and Other Goliaths, University of Tennessee law professor Glenn Reynolds, also happens to oversee a blog, a music label and a microbrewery.

Madeleine Brand talks to Reynolds about a utopian future that he says has already arrived.
