Tom Howe's Cloud Comms eBook Launched

As part of Tom Howe's Cloud Communication Summit at the ITExpo in January, he organized the creation of an ebook to showcase thought leadership around this topic. He enlisted 16 contributors to write short essays about various aspects of cloud communications, and voila, a book is born.

Tom was nice enough to include me in this group, and I'm helping spread the word that the Cloud Communications Book has been launched now, and is free to download on the site created to support it.

Most you know what Tom brings to the cloud comms/mashup space, and this is a really valuable intiative. By making it free, everyone benefits, and you'll be hard pressed to find a better collection of leading edge thinking anywhere about this topic. It's also a great example of the kind of collaboration that 2.0 technologies enable, and I have no doubt that more good things will follow.

To leave off, I'll pass on a few links, and you can take it from there. I'll start with the post on Tom's website providing the background on this project. Then, as a teaser, an excerpt from my essay, and finally the ebook website, where you can download the publication for yourself.

Once again, kudos to Tom and co-editor Pam Shapiro for bringing a great idea to life and making it so accessible for everyone. If only the rest of the world worked this way. Maybe that will be their next project...
