I’ve had a “reading list” post kicking about my drafts for a while, covering actual paper books (gasp!) about web 2.0 and such. But I never got around to posting it. And then yesterday, I saw UK social guy Dave Briggs posted one. With many of the same books as I’ve been meaning to read. Dang, scooped again…
Anyhow, here’s my list:
Anderson, Chris. The Long Tail: Why the Future of Business is Selling Less of More.
Benkler, Yochai. The Wealth of Networks: How Social Production Transforms Markets and Freedom.
Carr, Nicholas. The Big Switch: Rewiring the World, from Edison to Google.
Greenfield, Adam. Everyware: The Dawning Age of Ubiquitous Computing.
Lessig, Lawrence. Code: Version 2.0.
Livingston, Geoff. Now Is Gone: A Primer on New Media for Executives and Entrepreneurs.
Levine, Rick, Locke, Christopher, Searls, Doc and Weiberger, David. The Cluetrain Manifesto: The End of Business as Usual.
Morville, Peter. Ambient Findability: What We Find Changes Who We Become.
Rheingold, Howard. Smart Mobs: The Next Social Revolution.
Scoble, Robert. Naked Conversations: How Blogs are Changing the Way Businesses Talk with Customers.
Shirky, Clay. Here Comes Everybody: The Power of Organizing Without Organizations.
Surowiecki, James. The Wisdom of Crowds.
Tapscott, Don. Wikinomics: How Mass Collaboration Changes Everything.
Weinberger, David. Everything Is Miscellaneous: The Power of the New Digital Disorder.
I’ve actually gotten a fair ways into Cluetrain now, and have managed the first chapter of Miscellaneous. Both good reads so far…
