Announcing: The Future of Reputation

I'm pleased to announce the publication of my friend Dan Solove's book, The Future of Reputation. As some of you know, Dan (who teaches privacy law at GW) got his start in the blogworld by guest-blogging on Prawfs a couple years back and he has since helped spearhead the Concurring Opinions blog, which has done fantastically well, to the credit of Dan and his partners.  The blogging experience has clearly been a source of scholarly inspiration for him, as his new book about "gossip, rumor, and privacy on the internet" draws a lot on the insights gathered while blogging.

Happily, the book is published by Yale University Press and is currently available for only $16.32 from Amazon.  You can download the first chapter for free here. It's called "When Poop Goes Primetime," which of course has nothing to do with the well-deserved attention paid to the content of the book!

There is a chapter on shaming on the internet, and when I get to reading it, I may post some more reflections. In the meantime, congrats, Dan, on the launch of this very cool-looking book.
