Steve Valentine and I will be facilitating a conversation at Educon 2.6 in Philadelphia, PA this weekend. Our session is titled 'Engaging as Networked Thought Leaders: Let's Write a Book in 90 Minutes!'
We're going to try and compress, recreate, and share all that we learned in the past year in designing, constructing, and publishing Leading Online with anyone who honors us by choosing to spend their time with in our session on Saturday Morning.
This is the first time we've attempted to facilitate a collaboration of this scale and purpose, but we think it might work. And even if it doesn't, we'll have learned something by attempting it. We submitted a similar proposal to another conference but it was met with some pretty skeptical and harsh criticism from the reviewers. It probably wasn't the right venue for this kind of exercise anyways.
We like Educon.
For the past year my friend and colleague, Steve Valentine, and I have been working on a multi-touch book (for iBooks on iPads and OS X Mavericks) about organizational leadership and schools. You can read more about this project at http://www.leadingonline.net.
Yesterday we sent the ibooks file, the sample chapter, cover art, description, and screenshots to iTunes for review. Should all go according to plan, the sample chapter will be available with pre-orders, in a week or two, and the full book shortly after.
