Lee Siegel and his new book — Against the Machine: Being Human in the Age of the Electronic Mob — are everywhere right now. Siegel's even quoted on that television thing in our office elevator. The powerhouse critics has agreed to critique the Bryant Park blog and Twitter feed this week.

In our conversation on day one, he cautioned against mere talkativeness, then relished a Tweet about cupcakes. Today he's onto a Tweet about our daily breakfast order, and also an anonymous comment about him. Someone wrote, "Lee Siegel is a genius," and signed it "Sprezzatura." That's Siegel's onetime nom de net, one that got him into something of a pickle, let's say. He's brave about it.
