I've Got Nothing to Hide -- But I Do Have A Lot of Downloads:
I've joked before that if you want to top all the SSRN rankings, write a piece about privacy or computer hacking and submit it to Slashdot. Dan Solove proved the point this week by submitting a forthcoming symposium article, "I've Got Nothing to Hide" and Other Misunderstandings of Privacy, forthcoming in the San Diego Law Review. Slashdot picked it up yesterday afternoon, and in less than 24 hours Dan has picked up more than 27,000 downloads. That's right: 27,000, in less than a day. That's a lotta downloads.
