News & Opinion: 800-CEO-READ and ChangeThis
We are happy to announce today 800-CEO-READ will be taking on the stewardship of ChangeThis.
ChangeThis was a project started with Seth Godin, Amit Gupta, and a team of interns last August. The goal of the project was to create a distribution hub for world changing ideas. In the last 10 months, people who have contributed to the site include Tom Peters, Guy Kawasaki, Robert Scoble, Donna Brazile, Malcolm Gladwell, George Lakoff, Mark Cuban, Jay Levinson, and Seth himself.
We feel ChangeThis is another way for 800-CEO-READ to help thought leaders find an audience for their ideas.
Our first task will be to get the slushpile filled back up. We hope you will all help with that by voting for manifestos you would like to see and proposing ones yourself
We are currently working on the next issue of Changethis which we expect will be published in the next two weeks.
Jack and I want to thank Seth for trusting us to continue ChangeThis.
We think it is going to be alot of fun.
