Stories to last for the duration of an elevator ride. A longish one.

In less than a month, my new book – “It’s Complicated: The Social Lives of Networked Teens”  (see: http://www.danah.org/itscomplicated/ ) - will be published.  This is the product of ten years worth of research into how social media has inflected American teen life.  If you’ve followed this blog for a while, you’ve seen me talk about these issues over the years. Well, this book is an attempt to synthesize all of that work into one tangible artifact.

Now I have a favor…. please consider pre-ordering a copy (or two <grin>).  Pre-sales and first week sales really matter in terms of getting people’s attention. And I’m really hoping to get people’s attention with this book. I’ve written it to be publicly accessible in the hopes that parents, educators, journalists, and policy makers will read it and reconsider their attitude towards technology and teen practices.  The book covers everything from addiction, bullying, and online safety to privacy, inequality, and the digital natives debate.

If you have the financial wherewithal to buy a copy, I’d be super grateful.  If you don’t, I totally understand.  Either way, I’d be super super super appreciative if you could help me get the word out about the book. I’m really hoping that this book will alter the public dialogue about teen use of social media.

You can pre-order it at:
- Amazon (Hardcover, Kindle, Audiobook): http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0300166311/apophenia-20
- Powell's: http://www.powells.com/biblio/62-9780300166316-0
- Yale University Press: http://yalepress.yale.edu/yupbooks/book.asp?isbn=9780300166316

I'm enjoying playing with Mixel, the addictive iPad app created by (my friend) +Khoi Vinh . I call this one, "Peppermint Patty Spray" although they don't really need names.

I had some thoughts on the Sunday paper and blogged them quickly: http://www.subtraction.com/2011/07/31/dont-forget-the-sunday-paper-is-still-great

Gmail seems buggy in Safari 5.1. Getting some odd display bugs with the little yellow ad strips. I wonder if Google is QA testing enough in other browsers but Chrome these days.
