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.
