As I mentioned in my last post about our mission to raise the alarm about the perils and promises of the Internet of Things, I’m writing a book. With my friend, Randy Schultz, we explain the risks of hordes of Data Vampires swarming into our homes. Our book, The Rise of the Data Vampires (http://datavampires.com) tells the story of how the dominant players in the online world—Google, Facebook and Amazon—are using Data Vampires and Big Data to silently steal consumer privacy.
We are wrapping up the book proposal and sample chapters this month. Next month, we will take the proposal to literary agents to see if they share our interest in this compelling topic. An exciting time for us and we are optimistic we can find a publisher. I’ll post more as the story unfolds.
