A while ago, Drew and Gavin got a hundred bloggers to all write a chapter each of a book and then sold the book for Variety the Children's Charity.
It was called the Age of Conversation and was a remarkable feat of digital cat herding.
Because they are masochistic and like doing things for Variety, they have just done it again, this time with 237 authors from 15 countries.
The result is the Age of Conversation 2 which went on sale this morning.
Please go and buy it right now. Go on.
All proceeds go to help kids that need help - making this officially a GOOD THING - and you get a book with lots of interesting stuff in it thrown in free with the warm feeling.
I wrote a thing about the need for technology to be incorporated into the creative process, but don't let that put you off.

So if you read a page and love it or think it's nonsense, you can go straight the source and discuss it, which is nice and conversational.
