Malcolm Gladwell Starts To Blog - We've Hit The Tipping Point

Steve Rubel and his excellent Blog, Micro Persuasion, posted this: Malcolm Gladwell Blogs.

The famed author of The Tipping Point and Blink, Malcolm Gladwell, has climbed aboard the crazy train... I mean the Cluetrain... actually, I mean the Blog train.

I'm more than happy to know that I'll be getting bite-sized Gladwell on the fly as it happens. In the great tradition of other writers like Tom Peters, Seth Godin and Dan Pink, we can now all add Gladwell to our feeds.

According to one of the posts from Gladwell.com titled, Mea Culpa, here's Gladwell's reasoning:

"In the past year I have often been asked why I don't have a blog. My answer was always that I write so much, already, that I don't have time to write anything else. But, as should be obvious, I've now changed my mind. I have come (belatedly) to the conclusion that a blog can be a very valuable supplement to my books and the writing I do for the New Yorker. What I think I'd like to do is to use this forum to elaborate and comment on and correct and amend things that I have already written. If you look on my website, on the "Blink" page, you'll see an expanded notes and bibliography, which mostly consists of copies of emails sent to me by readers. Well, I think I'd like to start posting reader comments for everything I write, and this is a perfect place for that. There are also times when I think I've made mistakes, or oversights, and I'd like to use this space to explain myself and set things right."

Who's next up for a Blog? I say Thomas Friedman.
