Susan Scrupski left the Garden State (where I call home) to move to Texas and join the BSG Alliance. Today, she let another big cat out of the bag. BSG Alliance is merging with New Paradigm; best known as Don Tapscott's company. I've been a big fan of Tapscott since hearing him speak right after college; and devoured his Digital Divide book which was way ahead of its time (he basically predicted the emergence of social media platforms before any of us know our MySpace from a crawlspace). Since then I've run into him many times at various and sundry conferences, most recently at Enterprise 2.0 in Boston. Don is a well-known author, consultant and speaker. Currently, his book Wikinomics is sitting on a great many best-seller lists. I recently included it on my list of 2007 books; and Amazon.com nominated it as one of the best books of the year.
Don understands cultural change and its impact on business better than most. And the prospect of his insight and outward facing presence in conjunction with the BSG team should be a compelling one.
Congratulations to all concerned, and my apologies for not being able to make it to the Marriott today for the conference. Thank goodness for Veodia and vidcasting.
