What Web 2.0 Books? For Stephen Collins

One of many messy bookcases at my place.

I saw that Stephen Collins was asking for a list of groovy Web 2.0 books (on Facebook status updates). I think I saw responses go flying by on Twitter too. So I thought I’d take a foto so he can read my bookshelf. Then I thought I’d actually document them… anything to put off finishing the courseware I have to write:

Everything bad for you is good for you Steven Johnson
Wikinomics Don Tapscott and Anthony D Williams
The Playful World Mark Pesce
Naked Conversations Scoble
Second Life The Official Guide
Neuromancer (novel) William Gibson
Gonzo Marketing Christopher Locke
The Long Tail Chris Anderson
Smart Mobs Howard Rheingold
Wisdom of the Crowds James Surowiecki
Dispatches from Blogistan Suzanne Stefanac
Play Money Julian Dibbell
The Google Story David A Vise
The Tipping Point Malcolm Gladwell
ClueTrain Manifesto

My teacher used to say I’d get an A in procrastination. I was quite proud of that… until I understood what it meant. heh.

What books would you add to the list?
