Great conversation in good company

Never backwards in coming forwards, I’ve put my hand up to be a part of a project set up by the ever fabulous  Gavin Heaton and Drew McLellan .

I’ll let Drew outline it:

Gavin & I concocted the idea for an e-book about this new era of communications we’ve all entered together. But not just any book. It has to be a quick book. Exciting.  Sharp. Inclusive. It had to be a book about community and conversation that came from that community and spoke the same vernacular. The title — The  Conversation Age.

And  that is why we are talking to you. Our idea:

  • 100  authors. We’re a few but need more.
  • The  overriding topic is “The Conversation Age” — where you take it is up to  you.
  • The items  are short – one 8.5″ x 11″ page — it can be words, diagrams, photos (again up to  you)  If it is words – about 400, give or take a couple.
  • We  write it quickly and get it out there. We publish electronically.   
  • We  make it available online for a small fee and we donate 100% of the proceeds to  Variety the Children’s Charity  — which serves children across the entire globe.

Here are the contributors to date:
