The Age of Conversation

I’m proud to announce that I’m going to be part of this project that Gavin Heaton & Drew McLellan announced two weeks ago. So for those that missed out on that, here’s what it is about:

“Gavin & I concocted the idea for an e-book about this new era of communications we’ve all entered together. But not just any book. It has to be a quick book. Exciting.  Sharp. Inclusive. It had to be a book about community and conversation that came from that community and spoke the same vernacular. The title — The  Conversation Age.”

For this they called out to get a 100 authors for this to write a piece of about 400 words that obviously relates to the conversation age. They will donate 100% of the proceeds to Variety the Children’s Charity and the book will be dedicated to CK and her mom.

All of that was good enough make sure I applied to be one of the 100 authors and so be it. So I’m proud and excited to be part of this… and a little anxious as well. It’s a bit like the feeling you have when your write your first blogpost. Anyway, we’re in, I got 10 days left for the piece and hopefully you’ll like it.

Here is the full list of all 100 authors, it’s good to see a few familiar faces in the list and many new blogs to discover as well. You’ll see a remarkable list of people (I’m talking about all the others), wish me luck ;)



  1. I have no doubt that your chapter will be excellent. But I understand what you’re saying. It’s a bit daunting. I take some confort in the fact that we’re all feeling the same sense of anxiety.

    Which means we’ll all push ourselves a little harder and the book will be even better!

    Thanks for participating. I can’t wait to read your work!

    Thanks Drew, I’m looking forward to reading the whole ebook, amazing to see how fast you got to 100 authors by the way.

    This is going to be an awesome compilation, Kris. I think many of us are a bit anxious about what to say, but our combined thinking and conversation will be fantastic, I’m sure.
