Make your voice heard...We Think and Mass Creativity

The other night as I was driving home I had the chance to catch Peter Day's Interview of Charles Leadbeater (Global Business, BBC World)...

His new book, We Think explores 'the power of mass creativity', its benefits and shortcomings.
He does not want it to be confused with the mass production model of the industrial era.
On the positive side, he notes that "ideas take life when they are shared. That is why the web is such a potent platform for creativity and innovation", on the other hand "it leaves us more open to abuse and invasions of privacy" and "participation is not always a good thing: it can just create a cacophony".

Want to get a taste of the book, the first 3 Chapters are available for free in PDF form on the We Think Site.
It was shaped with the help of over 200 people via a Wiki page..
