I am reading Groundswell by Charlene Li and Josh Bernoff. It’s interesting, but to be honest I dare say that it would be impossible to write a futureproof book about Web 2.0 in the Web 2.0 world! Content and views change so often, and behaviours change, and new websites are launched that I suspect that the best sources of information aren’t going to be books but are going to be digital blogs.

Naked Conversations, by Shel Israel and Robert Scoble. It’s a book about corporate blogging.

I’m also reading Groundswell and loving it. Though I will disagree that they are focusing on theories and strategies to adapt to changing technology so it will be relevant for years to come (though the examples may get out dated)
What’s interesting is right before I read the Cluetrain Manifesto, which just hit the 10 year mark. The funny thing is there are so many similarities between the two.

I liked “Wikinomics” by Don Tapscott and Anthony Williams. It talks about the sheer social and economic force of collaborative media.

Interesting question. I am traditionalist (is it a real word) Dale Carnegi’s good old book still holds true “How to win friends and keeping them”

    Hi Campbell, thanks for the additions! I am planning to read ‘Naked conversations as well’; Robert Scoble is one of the real opinion leaders in this area!
