What Would Google Do? on a Fortune best list

wwgd_jackeytI’m delighted to say that What Would Google Do? is on Fortune’s list of the three best web books of 2008.

Jessi Hempel gives me a justified ding for name- (actually place-) dropping, which I feared would happen as I gave credit where credit is due to meetings at — warning: I’m about to place-drop — Davos for inspiring and introducing me to ideas and people. I’ve learned it’s impossible to say Davos (there: I did it again) without pretense. Then she concludes with thisL “…the book offers a great overview of what all businesses across nearly every industry have learned about the way the Web changes what they do.”

I’m honored to be in the company of Steve Baker’s The Numerati and Charlene Li and Josh Bernoff Groundswell.

This on the same day that Fred Wilson suggests buying the book.

Nice Christmas gifts.

    With hope, we’ll also see an UPDATE of the following quote

    …the book offers a great overview of what all businesses across nearly every industry have learned about the way the Web changes what they do

    to include

    … or what they should have learned about how the web changes what they can do

    Wow! It was just a matter of months ago that you mentioned you were about to write this thing. Now here it is kicking butt. I haven’t read it yet but that feat alone is seriously impressive. You’d better count on more visits to Davos.

    Now I’ll go and read it.
