Can you imagine the feeling of holding a book in your hand (or a beautiful 75-page eBook on your screen) and your name is in it as an author? I mean, one of 156 (i) inspired authors under the guidance of an accomplished leader in this field, Seth Godin.
Yes it is free for you to read and share. No, like my first co-authored ebook it was not a piece of cake, it was hard work, starting from a general idea and we had to work out the process, volunteer for leadership and editing - the works.
Few among us had prior experience of authoring a book (I guess our master illustrator Paul Durban has, go to his blog and ask him), and even then, this was entirely different than writing a book alone, I am told, and we got it accomplished. Such is the power of a tight-knit tribe.
In the process, I ran across another movement and it fits the tribal approach of getting things done: Open Space Technology. I first heard about it few days before the ebook editorial deadline and posted in our forum enthusiastically as I found out bit after amazing bit. And OST got mentioned in the book - twice. Now let's see where this all leads us.
Or leads you. If you are organizing a large workshop or get-together, make it easy for yourself and the participants, set up using OST and see the preparation take off as if magic.
Oh, did I mention this book was co-written by 156 authors and every one of them has their name and hyperlink in the ebook?
