The Outage, a
work by Erica Scourti, is a ghostwritten memoir based on her digital footprint,
the first in a series of books that collectively make up the work Shadow Sides,
to be published by Banner Repeater.
Each book draws on profiles and data based on
her public and semi-private online activity, obtained through the expertise of
professionals working within the fields of cyber security, digital privacy, and
social profiling. Working with a different ghostwriter for each book, the
material collected informs the basis of each new text narrating her memoirs,
extrapolating different versions of her aggregate data self, constructed
through her digital footprint.
