Nothing like finding one book you'd like to read to suddenly get a whole bunch more popping up in front of your consciousness. All of these are reflections of the stuff I'm obsessed with these days, the conversations I'm having inside my own head.
Starting with the one from the last post:
- The Future of Reputation: Gossip, Rumor, and Privacy on the Internet by Daniel J. Solove
- The Big Switch: Rewiring the World, from Edison to Google by Nicholas Carr
- Super Crunchers: Why Thinking-by-Numbers Is the New Way to Be Smart by Ian Ayres
- Tagging: People-powered Metadata for the Social Web by Gene Smith
- The Long Tail: Why the Future of Business is Selling Less of More by Chris Anderson
- Freakonomics: A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything by Steven D. Levitt, Stephen J. Dubner
And yes, I find it odd and somewhat disturbing that so many of the books I want to read are in the business section. Of course, if there's a book that you feel I should be reading, please drop a comment and let me know!
Also, related to the last post on The Future of Reputation, Michael Nielson pointed me to an article by Michael H. Goldhaber, The Attention Economy and the Net. Goldhaber also has a blog covering much the same territory.
