Help me write my book about presence

most recent tweet
I’m going to write my book, Presence of Mind (working title), on a wiki with as much input from others as possible. I’m also starting a mailing list to discuss online presence and related topics (extending from closely related matters such as identity, reputation, attention, privacy and so on, out to the full array of social web design patterns).
If you’re interested in joining this conversation, let me know and I’ll invite you when the list is set up.

    Hey Xian,
    I’d be very interested in joining the conversation. I liked the last book, and would be happy to lend whatever I can to this one.

    What about that, instead of trees of patterns, we get graduations of intensities? For example, in answering to a comment you have the option to accept or reject, and grade your answer accordingly. So, not trees but a landscape of possible scenarios.

    I was playing with my one free newbie search at when it hit me up for $39.95.
    I bailed, what’s Christian up to ? – fell into your social spaghetti media map. Love the pepto bismo color.
    The Power of Many steered me many good things including Drupal. The new book’s timely and I’m available in any little way.
