Kind words about our new Enterprise Social Media book

4. March 2011 03:22 by mike barlow | 0 Comments

The new book has earned some great reviews in the past two weeks. Here's a quick overview of recent commentary: Tom Webster in Social Media Explorer, Alison Bolen in Conversations and Connections, and Jennifer Leggio and Rich Harris in Social Business (a ZDNet blog). There are also six highly favorable reviews of the book posted on Amazon. It's always nice when people say nice things about a book you've written. I guess that's the real reason -- and maybe the only reason -- that we keep writing!

My new favorite blog: Thinking Outside the Inbox

3. March 2010 15:35 by mike barlow | 6 Comments

If you haven't had a chance to read "Thinking Outside the Inbox," the excellent blog by Luis Suarez, you're really missing a great experience. Luis is a true pioneer in the post-email universe, and he makes a strong argument for the end of email as we know it. The logical replacement for email is, of course, social media. Luis, by the way, is a social media evangelist at IBM. So he really knows how to make the case for using social media in a corporate environment. When you need to start convincing your boss that social media is the way to go, Luis is an valuable resource. And he also posts wonderful photos of his home island, Gran Canaria. Hey, it's nice to work from a gorgeous remote location!
