Mark the Date: Oct 13th Myths of Innovation day

The new edition of Myths is out, but I’ve been keeping quiet about it (shhhhhh).

Why? Plans are in the works.A small team and I are crafting some fun PR plans for the book in the month of October.

One big plan I can tell you about: Wed Oct 13th is Myths of Innovation day. The goal is to see how high we can get the amazon rank for the book to go. Interested in helping? Here’s what you can do.

  1. If you blog, plan to write a post about the book on Oct 13th
  2. Plan to post on facebook/twitter with a link to the book on Oct 13th (Facebook event here)
  3. Ask other bloggers/fb’ers you know to do the same
  4. Consider buying the book as a gift for a friend, on Oct 13th
  5. Sign up for the Free Webcast, 10 am PST

I’ll link back to all of #1 and #2 that I can – everyone wins!

Please mark your calendar! Over the next week I’ll be explain all the fun stuff we’re doing, including prizes, competitions, events and other fun, but wanted to announce the date. Hope you’ll help.

Leave a comment if you can do any of the above – then I can follow up with you if necessary. Cheers!

    I’m up for any and all of the above. I turned my project manager/PMP teaching husband onto your books and website…AND while I never attended Carnegie Mellon, I worked there for a year, and it changed my life.

    I’m half-way through Myths of Innovation and loving it! I would be glad to post about it on 10/13.

    Hi Scott,

    What a coincidence? I purchased my copy from Amazon just couple of days ago. Will try to blog about it when I finish reading.

    An idea is a combination of other ideas.

    Count me in for #1, #2, and I’ll try #3. I’ll try to have the book read by then to provide some relevant discussion.

    Oh, but now I have decide whether to purchase the book now so I can blog about it, or whether to wait until Oct 13 to buy the book on Amazon.

    I’ll probably wait until the 13th. I have more school reading than I can handle, anyway.

      Carolyn: I’d never be mad at anyone for spreading the word, even if not exactly when I wanted it :) So if you can’t resist, or think you’ll forget, please buy/post/dance whatever. Thanks.

    Thank you Scott your words have inspired me to learn how to feel in my mind what I think in my heart. I promise to wash my feet before I walk in your mind. I will buy your book and spread the word.

    Expect a blog entry about the book, which I read a few weeks ago. I was going to write it anyway, but this October 13th opportunity seems great!

    I was been wading through the muck and mire of books claiming to be the greatest and most insightful treatise on innovation when suddenly, when I had reached the tripping point of my BS tolerance, I discovered “Myths”. I’ve been participating in and managing innovation for over 25 years and no one has ever come closer to putting the real dynamics of the creative process on paper than Mr. Berkun.

    Scott…Myths of Innovation Day has already started Down Under!!!

    I met you earlier this year in Melbourne, and we had a brief chat about the challenges and tensions of innovating in a business world which seeks consistency and predictability; you may recall.

    Anyhow, congratualtions on the new edition. I devoured the original one, which I really enjoyed. I posted my thoughts on LinkedIn (we’re connected so you can see if you wish) including what might be good to see in a future edition – I look forward to seeing if some of these ended up in the latest version – if not, maybe in the next one!!

    Whislt the publisher classified the original text under “Technology / Business”, I do think its strenght is that it engages use at a deeper, philosophical level: I don;t normally buy ‘updates’ but I do think I will make an exception in this case.

    Again, congratulations and all the best with this endeavour. Hope to see you in Australia again soon.

    Done 2 and 4, albeit a little late as am overseas with limited net access! Great book, great read. Hope the day was a success!
