Look Mom, I’m an author

November 6, 2007


A while back I got an email requesting the rights to reprint a blog post I wrote in November 2005 entitled, “From the Web 2.0 Trenches: How to Build Real Businesses“. It’s been a while since I heard from them, but we just got a copy of the book:

(NOTE: I think I’ve posted this photo for my mom more than anyone…)

The book is a broad introduction to Web 2.0. My post is one of 16 chapters and others are available from Ravi Kumar Jain B , Kurt Voelker, Malcolm B. Brown, Coach Wei, José Luis de Vicente, Rod Boothby, Bryan Alexander, Michael Jensen, Catherine Styles and Robert Auger among others.

Thanks to the folks at Icfai University Press who were good enough to send me a copy.
