Seems I have a lot to write about tonight. Just catching up I guess.
I’ve told a few of you about the book I’ve been reading. It’s called Wikinomics. Sounds a bit dry? Well, it is actually interesting. It’s about how collaboration is changing the economy. You may have heard of sites like Facebook, MySpace, Flikr. But probably never heard of things like InnoCentive where major companies around the world are posting projects for real cash. For example:
Rapid Test for Detection of Infection
POSTED: JUL 26, 2007
DEADLINE: OCT 26, 2007
Or the Human Genome Project a site where geneticists collaborate. Although the social sites maybe in the sites in the spotlight now, it is much broader movement.
Anyway, I’m going to do a review of the book on my company blog e-Life, I’ll probably post it here too, or at least let you know when the review is up. Until then…Check out the site Wikinomics and Here’s a link where you can buy the book:
The next book I’m going to read is also pretty heavy, but about German. It’s called Der Dativ ist dem Genitiv sein Tod == Dative is the death of Genetive. It’s supposed to be a guide to all the craziness in the German Language. We’ll see… Here’s an audio version.
