a great new interview with Howard Rheingold in AssignmentZero.
: Howard Rheingold’s “Smart Mobs” at Edge.org.
blogged Howard Rheingold’s talk at Reboot earlier this week. I have been fortunate to have many electronic dealings with Howard over the years, so I’m sure this talk was as terrific in person as it reads. I have to figure out how I can get to more of these events.
I’ve never written a book, but I have had the experience of holding a book I helped produce (I co-designed, layed out, and helped edit) in my hot little hands when it first arrived from the publisher. I have had very few more satisfying feelings than that one – so I can just imagine how great Derek feels holding his book having written the thing!
All of which prompted an expensive day at Amazon yesterday. I bought DfC, Jeff Veen’s book, and the new-ish edition of Rheingold’s classic The Virtual Community, in which I believe my name is mentioned (among many others, a testament more to Howard’s supreme graciousness than to any contribution I may have made) in the Forward.
