Our next read will be, delete: The Virtue of Forgetting in the Digital Age, by Viktor Mayer-Schönberger (Princeton University Press, 2009). A review from John Seely Brown, USC:
Delete is, ironically, a book you will not forget It provides a sweeping but well-balanced account of the challenges we face in a world where our digital traces are saved for life. These issues transcend just issues of privacy but go to the heart of how our society and we as individuals function, remember, and learn. I highly recommend this most informative and delightful book.The book was just released two weeks ago, and they had plenty of copies at my local Barnes and Noble. I'm off to a conference this week, but plan to get started reading almost immediately. I probably won't post any book notes to FriendFeed until next weekend at the earliest.
I do hope you'll join me.
