On Configuring the Networked Self

Julie Cohen’s Configuring the Networked Self, now available from finer booksellers everywhere, is the subject of a just-launched online symposium over at Concurring Opinions.  Some of the invited posters are Madisonians, so this blog will link to and perhaps even mirror some of their contributions.  Plus, I may have an opinion or two to share; my work and Julie’s have long played off of each other, sometimes directly and sometimes indirectly.  The book is — to use a word that gets used rarely, and therefore carefully — magisterial.  Which means that it raises all kinds of questions.

More soon.
