And Then There's This: How Stories Live and Die in Viral Cultureby Bill Wasik
Synopses & Reviews
"An odd but happy marriage of sociological observation and Gonzo- style adventure."
Journalist and new media provocateur Bill Wasik journeys to the edge of our churning and rambunctious viral culture to illuminate how anyone with a computer can initiate a small ripple of a story that can turn into a tsunami. While exploring this fascinating landscape, Wasik (who organized the very first flash mob in 2003) conducts six experiments himself. This book is a must-read for anyone interested in journalism, business, technology, and how cultural information spreads. Wasik's tour is great, stimulating and fun.
