Happy Holidays!

kiev.jpgOn behalf of Concurring Opinions (LLC!), I want to wish you happy holidays.

We haven’t had a roundup of our readers for a long time. If you want, feel free to use this thread to tell us something about yourself, and what you are up to this holiday season.

I’ll start. I’m coding for this. I’m also grading. So, basically, I’m in excel hell, and can’t manage more complex problems than whether to put a 1 or a 0 in a cell on a spreadsheet. (Thus, the lack of blogging.)

How about you?

    I’ll bite and go first. I’ve spent today reading Solove’s “The Future of Reputation” (signed when he spoke at Case last year) and it would be going much quicker if I didn’t keep pausing to look up the references, blogs, and other items mentioned online. Well, that and the cat keeps jumping onto my lap, which makes it more difficult to read.

    Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year to all.

    I’m taking advantage of the quiet. I’m working on a startup that cracks down on Internet fraud* (spam, identity theft, etc.) via follow-the-money litigation and reputation scoring. Which is why I started reading your blog in the first place: I’m a privacy fanatic, and it’s important to do it right.

    Cat can’t jump into my lap, ‘cos he’s got three legs, but he won’t shut up till I put him there, so same problem as Michael. And I just ordered a copy of _The Future of Reputation_, so this blog post is now revenue-positive. Three cheers for Amazon Prime.

    * I cannot bring myself to say “cyberfraud” or “cybercrime” without cracking up. It’s a problem.

    Today I’m working some on the last substantive chapter of my dissertation so that I can, with luck, defend it early in the spring. In a couple of days I’ll be going down to Philadelphia for the Eastern American Philosophical Association meeting, coming back to New York City in time for the New Year and a New Year’s Day performance of _The Magic Flute_ at the Met as one of my New Years presents for my wife.

    You’re lucky to have lap-cats; mine keeps coming in, tapping my elbow and meowing at me so that I leave the keyboard and join her to play or watch TV in the next room.

    I’m researching a book about whether economic growth is always a good or necessary thing, particularly for Japan; researching a magazine article about quantification and management; preparing the official launch next month of the first foreign business law practice in Japan based north of Tokyo; and battening down with various pickled foods for the 4-day national shutdown known as New Year’s.
