The most remarkable thing about this event was almost none of the usual geek species in attendance – aside from a certain rabble of actual 2.0-ster troublemakers (who I accidentally invited to) crash the party.
Wikinomics has hit New York Times bestseller list, is flying off the “shelves” at Amazon, and looks to be a breakthrough hit both for all things Web/Enterprise2.0 and for Canadian business publishing. Don and Anthony (and all those behind them a paradigm) have put together a great book. Nothing overly groundbreaking for those already in the know but Tapscott and co. have a wonderful way of breaking down these big and important concepts into a format palatable to the mainstream – and with examples clear enough even a CEO could get it
And plenty were in attendance.
Web 2.0 has finally arrived to the business mainstream my friends. As I was saying to those around me, this is the best advertising we could be getting. I hope you’re ready for the avalanche.
