Just in case anyone is interested, and because I haven’t posted three times to my blog in one day in a while and I’m feeling a little wacky, here is a short list of what’s on my summer reading list (as if I have any more time in summer than any other part of the year these days.) For some strange reason, I’m on a real book reading jones right now.
- Little Brother by Cory Doctorow (Thanks to Carolyn Foote (I think) for the Twitter rec.
- The Big Switch: Rewiring the World, from Edison to Google by Nick Carr
- The Future of the Internet–And How to Stop It by Jonathan Zittrain (25% through it)
- Groundswell: Winning in a World Transformed by Social Technologies by Charlene Li and Josh Bernoff
- Network Power: The Social Dynamics of Globalization by David Singh Grewal
- Brain Rules: 12 Principles for Surviving and Thriving at Work, Home, and School by John Medina
- Collective Intelligence: Creating a Prosperous World at Peace by Tom Atlee
- Wikipedia: The Missing Manual by John Broughton (Thanks to Tom Hoffman)
- Proust and the Squid: The Story and Science of the Reading Brain by Maryann Wolf (Thanks to Sara Kajder)
Suffice to say, there are other books in my pile that I’m hoping to get to (including a few given to me by network associates) and with the election coming up, there are all sorts of other political titles I’d love to get to. Odds are I won’t make it through most of these, but best intentions…
Btw, I’ll just say it again, if you don’t have Clay Shirky’s Here Comes Everybody on your list, I humbly think you should.
Suggestions for additions?
