Wow, what a day yesterday! Hundreds of tweets, Facebook posts, Instagrams, emails to support the launch of Matterness! In addition to individual posts, there were a number of articles up about the book. Here is a roundup of the articles:
- What Matters to Online Communities? Breaking Free of the Technology Trap. An interview I had with Tom Watson for Forbes.com about the changing relationship between organizations and people.
- A Conversation with Allison Fine About Her New Book #Matterness on Beth’s Blog. A fun Q & A with Beth about why and how organizations can shift their cultures and unfortress themselves.
- 5 Falsehoods That Keep Nonprofits From Making the Most of Social Media. These are the myths organizational leaders are captive of that are keeping them from engaging with the world. The myths include: The World is Overflowing with Whackadoodles (my personal fav!), Social Media are Making Us Less Civil, We are Living On Land or Online, Staff Members Cannot be Trusted Online, Plans are More Important Than People.
- Q&A with Matterness Author Allison Fine. The Fierce Loyalty Blog (love that name!) hosted by Sarah Robinson. The post starts with a question from Sarah on my favorite tweet for Matterness: “If CRM, HR & leadership had a social media lovechild, they’d call it #Matterness http://goo.gl/bA9y90″
The book is launched, and now the marathon begins as, hopefully, people read and discuss it on land and online. I look forward to hearing what folks have to say about it, and, again, thanks for all of your help and support!
