The Peep Diaries

Starting with the birth of his daughter 4 years ago, Niedzviecki moves through a landscape of lonely sasquatch hunters, suburban web cam strippers in master-slave relationships, grown-ups dressing up like bunny rabbits, and the desperate antics of the cast of the now defunct Reality TV show The Real Gilligan’s Island.

Part travelogue, part diary, part meditation, in this night of stories from the Peep Diaries, Niedzviecki explores his own motivations for peeping himself and others. Niedzviecki explores the way Peep Culture is replacing pop culture, radically changing not just the entertainment landscape, but also the firmaments of our culture and society.

If you’ve found yourself obsessively posting to Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube – and becoming a little uneasy about how it’s changing your life – you should read this book. A superb investigation into how technology is shifting the landscape of our private lives. –Clive Thompson, Wired magazine columnist

Hi Hal,
I havn’t visited your blog in a while but I wanted to pop by and say hello.  I picked up your book, The Peep Diaries today at Chapters.  I had to ask for help but the lady there was able to find me a copy.  It was SO cool to start reading and then notice that there was a part in your book which you talked about my interview with you.  I’m very flattered and excited to be a part of your book.  I’m really looking forward to reading the rest of it!  It looks great!

The interview with you has brought me a bit of good luck.  I had an interview with Walrus Magazine and an opportunity to do a documentary although I had to turn it down.  I also did another interview today with the Canadian Press about the book and my thoughts on the Peep Culture. 

Thank you for letting me be a part of it all!  I’m also following you on twitter.  I had no idea you were on there!  smile
Keep in touch!
