Yeah, you go for it Mr.Nice Guy , I have been tracking She's efforts and kinda lost track of it soon after he made his global trip. Oh, Me too is on my own little venture across into India and the middle east and now catching up on emails etc. Will be back on the grid earlier next year, but could not resist creating this post !! (yea, its sucks to be a blogger- we peeps just need to say it right there and then !!)
But, just like I have noticed, the world has become a flatter. Some of My BarCamp and H2600 t-shirts have evoked conversations with complete strangers. This be itself is weird. "Our club", a global community club is growing and Shel is taking a stab at trying to analysis this revolution and create the book Global Neighbors.
Not sure if a chapter on the "power of influentials" within the community is something that needs to looked into. After all the influentials are the ones that move the community, governments and other nice stuff. However, not all influentials are willing to give up this power back to the community and other individuals. Participants who play, like a level playing field, but there is that subtle and yet undetectable social, psychological phenomenon within these groups too. The hordes of WoW is a classic example of the syndrome I am tying to describe. Will other social communities have this same syndrome ? and BTW Shel my My earlier post on TOcv1.0 is here :)-
Anyway, Shel has done a good draft on the TOC and I am looking forward to Prue-ordering the book and off course have another party at Shoeless Joe's for book signing !! :)-
