Richard Miller's book, On the End of Privacy: Dissolving Boundaries in a Screen-Centric World (UPitt, March 2019), focuses on the events leading up to the suicide of Tyler Clementi and the trial that followed, where Clementi’s roommate was charged with a series of hate crimes for having used his webcam to spy on Clementi kissing another man. With access to the text messages, tweets, and chatroom posts of those directly involved in this tragedy, Miller asks: why did no one intervene to stop the spying?
