Christopher G. Moore Updates: 14 November 2014

Dear Readers,

My essay is titled Reputation.

How has the digital world changed the way we measure and evaluate reputation?

The answer is in all kinds of ways, and part of this change also involves a narrowing of the role of free speech. The essay takes you on a journey from Kim Kardashian's ass (yes there is a photo) to the 2014 Nobel Prize winner for Literature (yes there is a photo, but you won't study it in quite the same way), as the competition for reputation enters a new online phase.

Bukowski, Miller and Orwell all wrote books about their down and out lives before they had a reputation and I have a look at what value we can draw from their experience.

Over the weekend, spend a little time thinking about the idea of reputation and what it means in your own life. I hope I may have added some ideas to stimulate your thoughts.

Best,
Christopher
