The editors of Webster’s New World Dictionary chose the verb ‘overshare’ as their word of the year in 2008. Why are we increasingly compelled to share mundane details of our lives online? We talk with Hal Niedzviecki, author of “The Peep Diaries: How We’re Learning to Love Watching Ourselves and Our Neighbors.”

Guests:
Hal Niedzviecki, writer, culture commentator, editor and author of "The Peep Diaries"
Misiek Piskorski, assistant professor of business administration in the Strategy Unit at the Harvard Business School
