[Dave Birch] Now, this is very exciting. But only to me. It turns out that “Digital Identity Management: Technological, Business and Social Implications”
had shot up in the Amazon rankings: I imagine someone must have bought a copy, because it went up to 38,735. This sounds poor, but it’s actually not bad. Charles Dicken’s “A Christmas Carol”
was 99,541 and the last book that I bought (A.C. Grayling’s “Against All Gods: Six Polemics on Religion and an Essay on Kindness”
) was at 1,835. It was an exciting and heady time, that week, because it’s I’ve slipped way back down below Dickens. Anyway, I’m beginning to learn how good it feels to an author to see their book up the chart, now matter how briefly. In fact, it’s fantastic in more than one respect, because it’s a recognition of the fact that digital identity is becoming an important business topic.
I apologise for the self-indulgence, but I’m mildly encouraged by the response I’ve had from people whose opinions I value and some not particularly terrible reviews. Clearly, I’m not only one who thinks that digital identity management needs to been seen as a distinct discipline and have the opportunity to evolve new thinking. I genuinely do welcome all comments, criticism and creative suggestions.
These opinions are my own (I think) and are presented solely in my capacity as an interested member of the general public [posted with ecto]
