The Age of Conversation 2, a new collaborative book in which I've written a chapter, is being released today. The book features essays on how social media (like blogging) is changing the conversations we have with each other—in business, our work and personal lives, both online and in the "real" world. My chapter is titled " : When micro storytelling meets ", and if you want to read it, you may purchase the book here.
What is The Age of Coversation 2 about?
Bloggers Drew McLellan and Gavin Heaton had an idea in early 2007 to create a book about how blogging was changing their world, and they invited others to join in. The first Age of Conversation had 103 authors, representing 10 countries and 24 U.S. states.
Based on the first book's success, a sequel naturally followed. Released today, the AOC2 has expanded globally: its 237 authors hail from 14 countries and 29 states throughout the U.S.
All proceeds from the first book went to Variety, the Children's Charity. We hoped to raise at least $10,000 (U.S.), and we raised $15,000 instead.
The goal of AOC2 is to raise $15,000 for Variety, and we hope to even surpass that—with your help.
