News & Opinion: Indexed, Farber and Charity

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 8:41 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

Three notes, not quite related. 1. Jessica Hagy's book Indexed is out today.

She shares stories via index cards. This past month, we published her ChangeThis manifesto. You can follow her on a regular basis at her blog. 2.
As I've mentioned before, Steve Farber who wrote two fables, The Radical Leap and The Radical Edge, is back to the writing board. His next book is due out in January of 2009 (seems like eons away). There's an unedited prologue over at his blog. 3.
More than 160 people have taken part in our Mystery Box offer with the money going to Room to Read. That's over $3000 that will be donated to help children around the world learn to read. Thank you for all your help! If you'd like your own Mystery Box (three books, all a surprise), read on.
