Much looking forward to the publication of my new book, Conformity, in a few days. (The book grows out of lectures from 2003; I had planned/hoped to publish them for a long time but didn't get focused until now, when they seemed especially relevant.)

TV Nudge Experiment: I am supposed to do a nudge at a street festival to reduce littering. The “experiment” will be shown on national TV. We have 4 hours to film. Target group 20-30 year olds. Any ideas??

Here's a word we need in 2019: Lapidation. An old word for stoning someone to death. proposes we use it for virtual stonings -- outrage mobs that ruin reputations and lives, with little regard for truth or proportion.

Fox News is essentially a Lapidation Machine - but there is plenty of lapidating on the left. (Senator Al Franken was a victim of lapidation.)

Lapidation: a term for the modern equivalent of the Two Minutes Hate. Ronald Sullivan has been lapidated (by the left); the same is true of and (by the right). Fox News is a lapidation machine. Left-wing lapidation is too common on campus.
