The Future of Reputation, a book by Daniel J. Solove, is (each chapter as a PDF file). For anyone interested in thehttp://www.blogger.com/img/gl.link.gif phenomena of being Dooced, here are the chapters in the book:
THE FUTURE OF REPUTATION:
Once again, I wish I could put all of this filtering of information and research into an art piece, but I have no idea where to begin, or where I would end on such a project. Part of me is very into high-touch art, physical constructions that are strong, purposeful, durable, and full of meaningful matter. The other part is into hypertext, interconnected dynamic flow of information, vast fonts of knowledge. Anyway, let me know what you think of the book if you read it!

It's helpful to get this pep-talk from Mr. Rogers in the morning, as I did (initially from NPR's "most e-mailed stories" podcast, so to all my friends who are going through tough times, missing their loved ones, feeling lost and alone, or just feeling like underachievers, it's going to be okay. We all do the best we can at any given time, and that's all you can do. So many of my friends in so many ways are heroes of mine...I think you all are some of the most compassionate, creative, level-headed, and brave individuals that live on this planet. I mean, I'm a little partial to you all, but you all really are amazing.

I've played a little with Yahoo! Pipes beta which is some sort of visual programming console. I like it a lot, but I don't know if it's aggregating my shared item and blog rss feeds in order of date and time posted, which is what I would like. [[Edit: think I fixed it]] Anyone who can help me troubleshoot it, please comment. The pipe is meant to put my blog and shared google reader items together and edit out any entries having to do with carnal relations so that there's nothing inappropriate flowing into Facebook, which is where I want to link to the pipe's feed from and where I know lots of girls from camp who just aren't "of age" to view adult material.

I just ran into the director of development here at MICA at my open studio today (part of parents weekend) who had dinner last night with someone on the board of Outward Bound Baltimore. While I love working at camps, Outward Bound or Educo are the types of companies and jobs I'd love to have come graduation, so I'm getting the hookup. Her last name is Hopkins. Read: blue Baltimore blood. Jawsome! Back to the homework.

On IFC I have seen a ton of great shows lately. I couldn't stop watching Darkon, which is about Live-Action Role-Playing (LARP-ing), and this afternoon while slaving away at my typography homework I saw Loves Labour Lost, which is a 2000 version of the early Shakespeare play set in the 1940's and inspired by Fred-and-Ginger Ethel Merman musicals (Karen, are you reading this?)

A moment ago I stepped outside of my building and was struck at the warm, humid air. Here I am, leg-warmers, scarf, and tights, and yet it is most certainly no cooler than 70* F outside. Warm, muggy, with a pervasive dampness, this global warming thing is not really working for me. I keep waking up sweaty and clammy it's so temperate in my room. If this is what is in store for the future, I'm going to have to ditch the layered, artsy look so characteristic of a MICA fibers major.

Despite having been very careful to re-register to vote in the demo primary in California, I called my county elections office and they said that I was not registered to vote-by-mail, and could vote at my regular polling place. Except I'm in Maryland. So, really, County of Ventura, that is not something I can do. Lame. And registering for November won't help me because I don't know where I'll be in November. Needless to say, I'm pretty damn ticked off. It's only my constitutional right. Whatevs. I'm sure I'll get over it soon.
