Siva to be Fellow at the Institute for the Future of the Book

I’m finishing a talk I’m giving this Friday so my mind is elsewhere, floundering in the PowerPoint, but I was delighted by this news from the Institute for the Future of the Book (and intrigued by the topic of Siva’s next book project):

We are proud to announce that the brilliant media scholar and critic Siva Vaidhyanathan will be establishing a virtual residency here as the Institute’s first fellow. Siva is in the process of moving from NYU to the University of Virginia, where he’ll be teaching media studies and law. While we’re sad to be losing him in New York, we’re thrilled that this new relationship will bring our work into closer, more dynamic proximity. Precisely what “fellowship” entails will develop over time but for now it means that the Institute is the new digital home of SIVACRACY.NET, Siva’s popular weblog. It also means that next month we will be a launching a new website devoted to Siva’s latest book project: an examination of Google’s disruptive effects on culture, commerce and community.
