As a result of visiting Facet's order page for Martin's book , I just came across two other reviews: - Jane McConnell, " Martin White has accomplished a great piece of work that will bring a lot of benefit to a lot of intranet managers. Read her review at the NetJMC blog. - Jed Cawthorne, " Martin crams a treasure trove of information into 233 pages. His writing style is concise and easy to digest.

WOMMA Publishes Influencer Handbook…

Ant's Eyeview Blog

While we didn’t agree on everything (what fun would that be), I’m pleased with the outcome of the work, the Influencer Handbook. Influencers are more than a passing interest to me…generally speaking I don’t take projects that aren’t about reaching out and connecting with influencers as part of a community strategy.

We had a terrific launch of the Social by Social Handbook - previously trailed here - at the Reboot Britain event earlier this week. I’m only just catching up on all the connections made, and will post something more thoughtful later. Meanwhile the content of the book about how to use Social Technology for Social Benefit - some 275 pages of it - is all available here on a holding site. You can order the print version, and we’ll shortly have pdfs to download.

Capacity, engagement and authentic learning

What we are getting instead is some terrific collections of tools, handbooks and harvests of processes. This.pdf of a Handbook for Civic Engagement prepared for a community process in the United States is an excellent example of the kind of harvesting that is useful. I think there is probably nothing new under the sun. Engagement work has been tried, refined and improved all over the world in the last couple of decades that I wonder if there is anything new we can learn?
