I could not be more excited or honored than to have worked with editors Les Lloyd and Gabriel Barreneche on Educational Technology for the Global Village, coming soon from ITI. Thanks to a number of outstanding contributors who shared their knowledge and experience, this relatively slim 200-page book succeeds brilliantly in informing and inspiring us in regard to how technology can and is being used to uplift resource-deficient schools and communities all over the world.
We just put out a news release on Mike Gruenberg’s new ITI book, Buying and Selling Information. It’s the first time I can recall our ever working with an author on the vendor side of the information equation. And it’ll be the last. (Just kidding, Mike — I really do want to hear about your novel.) … but seriously, while the book does get into some nitty-gritty issues it isn’t a recitation of dry facts or a Big Database Company whitewash job – far from it. It’s a very personal, interesting, and I might even say profound discussion of how relationships are successfully developed, nurtured, and built to last.
Yesterday, our ambitious little book publishing division here at ITI launched a terrific new title that’s all about “personal digital archiving.”
I’d never heard the phrase until my friend and colleague Donald T. Hawkins approached me a couple of years ago with the idea of putting together a book on the topic. (“Is this old wine in new bottles?” I wondered.) Well, Don made a very persuasive case, we signed him to a book contract, and–working indefatigably and enthusiastically to enlist and guide a knowledgeable cast of contributors–he proceeded to produce one of the best books we’ll publish in this or any other year.
Today’s the day! Gnik Rowten–that’s “networking” spelled backward–is the Man of the Hour as Ron Sukenick’s and Ken Williams’ awesome new CyberAge Book takes flight.
21 Days to Success Through Networking: The Gnik Rowten Story is a highly entertaining, must-read business parable for new and aspiring networkers as well as for experienced networkers looking for fresh ideas and inspiration.
