I’m thrilled that the book will be available in the US, where I spend so much of my time these days.
If you’re reading this in America and have a copy – let me know what you think… even more importantly, if you could leave a review on Amazon.com or elsewhere I would be very grateful. There are some great Amazon reviews on the UK Amazon store and they are really helpful to people deciding whether to buy or not.
If you would like to get your hands on a copy, the ads on the right of this page will take you to the appropriate Amazon store, and it is widely available in US book stores.
And, of course, Me & My Web Shadow is available on the Amazon Kindle platform, so you can read it on Kindles and indeed your PC, Mac, iPhone and iPad. Also, if you are a Sony Reader owner it is available for that device.
Young Americans more careful with their online reputation than elders, says Pew
Younger people in America could teach their parents a thing or two about responsible behaviour online, according to US research organisation Pew Research Center. Meanwhile older people are more likely to be careless about how they are managing their personal online reputation.
Partly this may be because, as a senior Pew researcher put it in the New York Times, 18-25 year olds are at “a time in life when there’s a lot of attention being paid to self-presentation”.
This morning I’ve stashed previews of Charlene Li’s book on leadership and the below book “Superconnect” (about networks of all things)…
Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey discusses the three core lessons learned from building and launching the world of 140 characters. So what did Jack take away from the experience? Successfully launching ideas requires 1) Getting your ideas out of your noggin 2) Luck with a dash of planning 3) Refining your idea based on feedback.
Privacy is one of the most complex social, political and commercial issues on the web. It’s not a single issue at all really, it’s a seething mass of issues, struggles, norms being negotiated, lines being re-drawn…
A few years ago, Matt Locke wrote an incredibly useful essay called Six spaces of social media (secret, group, publishing, performing, partcipation and watching), in an attempt to pry definitions of social spaces away from technical and platform ones and focus minds on what was actually happening in these spaces. You know, the interesting, human stuff. All of these spaces might exist in Facebook, for instance, or in a forum, or across several platforms (Twitter/blog/Facebook/email is a common combination).
Now he’s come back to the topic with a post about transgressions, that is to say when other users or the platform owners do things with your stuff (data, identity, images etc.) that you didn’t want them to.
A series of serendipitous events has led to having an article about the iPad published in this month’s The Word magazine.
It covers my impressions of living and working with the iPad for the past two months (very good, since you ask).
I’d forgotten the joy of being in print… and they kindly included my brazen mention of Me and My Web Shadow.
Thanks very much @davidhepworth for the chance to write it.
