News & Opinion: On the Virtual Road...

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 3:14 AM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

Last year Paul Williams of Idea Sandbox came to me with an idea - he wanted to steal my idea. I said OK because it wasn't my idea in the first place.

Paul wanted to restart a blog book tour for business books. This is an idea I had back in 2004 and launched at the Business Blog Book Tour back when I was writing at A Penny For (love the Wayback Machine). I ran 10 tours over the next 21 months. They still sit in archive at my Astronaut Projects website. And I had gotten the idea from Kevin Smokler and his Virtual Book Tour.

So, Paul started the Post2Post Book Tour. I have been fortunate to been a stop on the tour and now am proud to say that Jack and I are touring authors for The 100 Best Business Books of All Time.

This week, we will be moving at the speed of light between these five stops:

March 2, 2009 - Brand Autopsy
March 3, 2009 - Slack Manager
March 4, 2009 - CrowdSpark
March 5, 2009 - Eric Taylor Blog
March 6, 2009 - Biz Growth News

Hope you will visit and check out what these citizen journalists think of the new book.
