It was nice to see that a few colleagues from my former life as a technology analyst/etc. took note of the release of Intervention.

One was John Battelle’s Searchblog:

Denise was pretty much Searchblog, Techcrunch, Web 2.0, Wired, and the Industry Standard all rolled up into one person back when no one else was paying attention. … She since has focused her considerable talents on the study of risk and science, and I can’t be happier for her that this book is out.

Ditto that last part; I couldn’t be happier myself.

Another was Chris Nolan’s Spot-on, which took note that Intervention was part of a trend toward self-published books. (Nolan’s right; I’ll have lots more to say about that anon.) Renee Blodgett’s Down the Avenue called out the book’s conclusion, which outlines some field-tested methods that citizens and regulators can use to start improving the assessment of risky innovations now.

And Italian technology journalist Carola Frediana, of FreddyBlog, has posted what appears to be the first international notice about Intervention.

I was particularly happy to see Carola’s post, since it indicates that the book may get picked up in Europe, where they are willing to have actual, civil conversations about the risks of innovations instead of shooting the messenger first, asking questions never.
