Age of Conversation 2 is now out

Posted: October 29, 2008 at 7:52 am in conversation, journal


A few months ago, I volunteered to contribute an essay to a compendium called “The Age of Conversation 2″. The first “Age of Conversation” book resulted after two editors collected submissions on the topic of conversation from one hundred bloggers and self-published the result at lulu.com. The second book, in which my essay appears, is now available at lulu for purchase. It may just be a collective vanity self-publishing project, but it will still be kind of neat for me to see something I wrote bound into a book.

Despite the help of my readership in brainstorming ideas for the essay, one of the requirements for publication was that I refrain from posting my essay here for six months. So if you just want to see my essay, ping me then.

    Eric,

    Actually, I think Age of Conversation and Age of Conversation 2 are so much more than a collective vanity project.

    You have some of the marketing industry’s smartest and most articulate thinkers, coming together to accomplish three things:

    1) Freely share their expertise and experience

    2) Create a community of bloggers who, after the first book, went on to do real work projects together, hire one another and become close friends

    3) Collectively raise over $14,000 to care for the world’s children

    If some people get an ego boost out of all that…I say more power to them. They’ve earned it.

    Drew
