My Book Deal

This is exciting. And it feels like it warrants more than this simple, dashed-off blog entry. But, unfortunately, it's late and I want to get up early tomorrow to hit the gym. (I've fallen off the fitness wagon lately and I'm really starting to feel it.) So… dashed-off it is…

I am very proud to announce that Randy Farmer and I are thisclose (close enough that I feel perfectly comfortable writing about it, and not worried in the least that things won't go through) to signing a contract to author a new book in the Yahoo! Press line (published in partnership with O'Reilly Media, Inc.)

The book is entitled Building Web 2.0 Reputation Systems and there's a companion site, buildingreputation.com that went live today! The subject, of course, is an extension of work at Yahoo! in building a cross-company platform for modeling reputation on social media properties. (And I've posted several related entries here on Soldier Ant as well.)

Obviously, I couldn't be more pleased about the book. It's going to be a lot of work over the next 4 or 5 months, but I'm ready to rise to the challenge.
