1 - 2 weeks availability


Journalist and new media provocateur Bill Wasik journeys to the edge of a 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 organised the very first flash mob in 2003) conducts six experiments himself. A must-read for anyone interested in journalism, business, technology and how cultural information spreads, Wasik's tour is great, stimulating fun.
