My second e-book, finding perpetual beta, is now available. Scroll down to read a description of the contents. You will receive a nicely formatted and edited 75-page book, that is also copy-protection free so you can read it on any device, share it with friends, or print it. The e-book is available for
$24 [now get 4 books for $25]. This e-book contains a series of reflections on the themes originally presented in seeking perpetual beta, published in April, 2014. The aim of finding perpetual beta is to dig deeper into the issues. This is a continuing exploration of how society, technology, work, and education are changing. It questions the status quo of organizational structures and hierarchies. In addition, there is an expanded section on personal knowledge mastery (PKM), a foundational discipline for working in the network era and a creative economy.
