Our book Sociable! has been signed off. Stephen Jagger and I are now waiting on the very first hardcopy. After that’s singed off, you’ll be able to order the book from Amazon.com and CreateSpace.com this coming month.
I thought while we all wait I would give you a sneak peek into some of the personalities involved in the book.
Sociable! Media Leader #1: Kyle MacDonald (@oneredpaperclip):
Kyle wrote the foreword of the book. Here’s a great video on how Kyle traded one red paperclip for a house in one year:
Sociable Media Leader #2: Peter Aceto (@CEO_INGDirect):
Peter Aceto CEO of ING Direct Canada has brought a very transparent approach to leadership in banking. We had the opportunity to interview Mr. Aceto for the book and have since cooperated with ING in a few progressive social media marketing activities such as their standing room only #tweetup at the ING Direct Café here in Vancouver. (You can check out the event photo’s here on flickr). Below is an example how Peter has used YouTube and FairFees.ca to directly connect with the marketplace. He’s also one of the top CEO Tweeters in Canada (Follow him here).
Sociable Media Leader #3: Scott Heiferman (@heif)
Scott Heiferman is the CEO of Meetup.com. Anyone who knows Stephen Jagger and I will know that we really love Meetup. With that said our interview with Scott really opened us up to Scott’s global vision for Meetup and the very local impacts it can have on community and individuals. Below is a recent slideshare (click play to hear the audio, the 18 minutes are worth a listen) from a presentation by Scott this week at the Personal Democracy Forum in Europe.
