Monkeys With Typewriters

Hi Brom and Phil,

I found your group through a search for groups relating to "leadership 2.0". For the past 18 months I've been researching this theme for a book focusing on how social media can transform the way organisations are run (if only the "leaders" let it)!

The book was published by Triarchy Press last week and called "Monkeys With Typewriters" because I wanted to give the idea that all (and none) of us are actually "in charge". Please see for further information.

It'd be great to know what you (or this group's members) think of the importance of social media in facilitating "leadership 2.0".

Cheers, Jemima

PS In case you don't get the reference, it's not an insult. It's that old saw that if you get an infinite number of monkeys writing on typewriters, eventually they will produce the complete works of Shakespeare. So, it's a "Wisdom of Crowds"-type thing.

Award-winning, community based leadership development for your organisation.
