My new book project

· Editorial

Today, my publisher approved a book I’m going to write between now and next March tentatively to be called The Power of Many with a subtitle of something like How Craigslist, Howard Dean, and are changing the ways we connect.
As with my canceled blog book, I am hoping to do this book in a bloggy way, tracking links in a blog, inviting others to comment, kibitz, and contribute, and networking like hell when the book is closer to comnig out. It should come out in June or July, timed to when the election is heating up.
I’m pretty excited about this project, as it is a chance for me to progress as a writer from teh tech-documentation ghetto I’ve been laboring in for a decade to more narrative style nonfiction. In the meantime, between the book and the campaign I will probably ease back even further posting to RFB, except as a way to let steam escape.
I did change the Collaboration and Community category recently to “people to people” and I may occasionally blog related stuff there, particularly when it connects to blogging and social software, as some of my book will inevitably do.
I’ve also started a new blog for the book itself (The Power of Many that will have to remain password-protected until the book is listed in Books-in-Print, in early February). You are all welcome to read it. The username is book and the password is sesame.
If any of you guys would like to have posting rights to the blog (post relevant links, or just ideas), just let me know. I suspect Rayne might and I bet filchyboy will be an excellent resource for the dating chapter! (The book isn’t just about politics and democracy and Dean.)
