[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.
