New book on social media – and you can help

Posted by Lotta Holmstrom

Shel Israel is writing a new book on social media and how it’s moving power from institutions to people: ”Global Neighbourhoods”. And he wants your help making it good, publishing excerpts excerpts and chapters as he edits them and asking for input. Currently he’s working on the third version of the overview.

My thanks for your input on the previous version. You have in fact forced me to see this book more clearly than I previously did, and perhaps more clearly than Scoble and I did when we began the journey that became Naked Conversations.

Please do it again. This will be my final posting of this overview as I move on to the Table of Contents (TOC). Your changes will appear i it when I post the final TOC. Please coent on the tagline which has also been changed. So please give me your best shot.

    Thanks for helping to spread the word. Just one not. I am not just publishing excerpts, I’m going to publish as much of the book on the blog as I possibly can. I’m also trying to reveal as much as I can on the process of writing a book, to help other new authors. I will post the full content of interviews I’ll conduct and have already posted several. Once, with blogger help, I have a proposal that will attract publishers, I will begin posting first drafts of each chapter on the blog. I would like to publish finished chapters, but so far, no publishers have stepped up to agree to that. I do all this because a core belief in both Naked Conversations and Global Neighborhoods is that the generosity of the blogosphere will help me write a better book, and by being part of the process, other bloggers will spread word of mouth about the value of the book.

    Thanks again.

    Thanks Shel for that correction. And a great initiative, which I’m sure will result in a great book. I’ll be stopping by from time to time to see how it evolves.
