What Should be the Title to The Sequel to Wikinomics?

By Don Tapscott and Anthony Williams

Dear Friends of Wikinomics.

We are just finishing the manuscript of a new book.  The basic idea is that the principles of Wikinomics, the new Web and mass collaboration provide the keys to transforming more than the corporation (that’s what Wikinomics was about). Rather we can reinvent and rebuild just about every institution in society for an age of networked intelligence. Many of the organizations and institutions that have served us well for decades, even centuries, are stalled. The pillars of economic and social life that grew from the industrial economy have come to the end of their life cycle.

The financial services industry for example needs more than a fresh infusion of capital or some new regulations; it needs a whole new operating model — one based on integrity, transparency, and the sharing of intellectual property. Meanwhile the epitome of the industrial economy, the American auto industry has collapsed and evidently lacks the vision to move towards more sustainable and intelligent forms of personal transport. As companies in other sectors cut their costs to stay alive, many began to see that hunkering down, while necessary was insufficient for success. From manufacturing to retail smart managers have begun to initiate long over due changes to their structures and strategies.

The upheaval is now spreading to other sectors — from the universities and science, to entertainment and media, to government and democracy. The recent collapse of many newspapers is a storm warning of more to come. There is a growing appreciation that conventional wisdom isn’t going to cut it for success in this century.

There is no more important challenge than creating a green energy grid and reindustrializing the planet for sustainability. And thanks to the new web, for the first time in human history the peoples of the world are building a global movement — where everyone is on the same side.

So while the burning platform of the global economy is propelling change there are simultaneously new opportunities to marshal the collective ingenuity of society to solve problems on a time-scale that matters. The book argues that old notions of command and control leadership are giving way to new models of decentralized leadership and collective action. To achieve the goals of wealth creation, social development, justice, freedom and sustainability, we need to reinvent our institutions around a new set of design criteria for the 21st Century, including: Innovation, Collaboration, Self Organization, Transparency, Sharing, Interdependence and Integrity.

There are a number of initial title ideas below.  We’re looking for a title that informs readers what the book is about and is memorable.  Please respond as follows:

  1. Are there any titles and/or subtitles that work for you?

    We had originally thought Wikiworld would be a good title but isn’t the “wiki” thing done? Wikinomics is still a great term and we did invent it. But to coin a neologism containing “wiki?” Not sure that’s a good idea.

    I like the term Age of Networked Intelligence as the best term to describe what comes after the Industrial Age.

    I also like the idea of Rebuilding the World, but maybe with the economy improving “rebuilding” might seem like the wrong term. then again all our institutions need to be rebuilt — from the corporation and government, to the media, science and the transportation system.

  6. I know, the 'rebuilding' is more restructuring, more… flushing.

    I think “Name this Book;” is good for a title, and something to do with the networked intelligence next..

  10. I think the “Us, Not Them: Why We are Abandoning Social Institutions” is very good. Not sure if it is too much anarchist. My suggestion: “Social Synapse: Being Part of the Global Intelligence”, although I don't know if it would introduce a term not totally proper. On the other hand, the subtitle could be more like the “Us, Not Them” idea, with something like “Upgrade for Old Institutions”

  16. I like the above idea of incorporating something about “creating the future together” too. I also think that the title should imply more than just a reboot or rebuild. It's like starting with a blank slate and re-envisioning how the world's institutions and organizations could work through the principles of Wikinomics and then creating that future together (through networked intelligence or something similar that implies working together on a scale that's only possible in today's online world). Here's my offering:

  21. I really like Cocreating the Future or perhaps Co-creating the Future From the Bottom Up – My sense of things is yes platforms are proliferating – and they seem to be distributing power – but are they also concentrating it. It's all so new though no way to know where this will take us in 10-20 years. Thrilling time to be alive.

    I will say the first book was fantastic! I would like to see the next one read by people other than the internet boosters and usual suspects. So the title would be very important to get it out of that circle. I tried to get folks to read the first one but most of my co-workers seemed to think it was something only for me (the IT department.)
    So my preference would be the title reflect empowerment of all levels – as opposed to further encouragement to those of us that are already in the club. Either way – I can't wait to read it!

    Wikinomics was part of the inspiration for hyperlocavore…so THANK YOU!

  22. The economy may seem to be improving – but it is going through a tumultuous restructuring – which will only become more so as climate change and peak (everything) have their full impacts… I think Rebuilding the World does capture the times…If people don't think that's what is happening, they aren't paying attention.

    I came across a site last night that was basically something like Startup Nation – but totally focused on tools for smart phone users in the developing world. They are not using the net the way the laptop set is…fantastic and disruptive.

  32. Redesigning the World would combine Design Thinking (which you are talking about, I think) and the late Russ Ackoff's 'Idealized Design' (which I think you are also talking about). It's also not too techie (I agree with Liz that you should avoid terms like rebooting for that reason).
    I suppose Creation 2.0 or God 2.0 would alienate a few US readers?
    Really, I wish you'd call it “A Triarchy Press Publication”!

  34. Hi Don

    Been pondering on this. I think the following would be a good title:
    'Wikiworld: How the Digital Revolution has changed everything'
    I like Wikiworld as it's the grown up brother to Wikinomics which focuses on one aspect (the business/economic) of the digital revolution.

    Networked Intelligance has now infiltrated every aspect of our life and world and therefore Wikiworld is appropriate. The term also leverages on your previous success. It builds on the Wiki brand you have created.

    What comes next? 'WikiLife', WikiSapien'…

    Good luck!

  35. Please avoid anything with any religious connotation – or this atheist will have to boycott! :D

    I think the WE or YOU even is very important…and as much as I like the Renaissance…and think it has lovely connotations.. it's a global creative citizen phenomena. I would hate to label it in too Eurocentric a way….

    How You Will Remake the World
    How You Are Remaking the World – How the Net is Unleashing A Global Wave of Human Creativity

    It really is not about the net but how the net is unleashing human potential…the story is that humans have found a way to do that..a means. As interesting as the means is (the net) the more amazing thing is how it is being used both as proscribed and completely 'off label' in very creative other – previously unenvisioned ways. It's perhaps a bad analogy – but previous tech was like a glass of wine for the mind…the net is like LSD. We have no idea where this will take us all…in a good way! As Gary Vaynerchuk keeps saying…”the (popular) web is only 14 years old, it's just hitting puberty!”

    The Renaissance was the story of a very small number of creatives with patronage. This time it's about people being patrons to each other – thinking in terms of crowd funding now…unleashing human altruism, foresight, community, creativity, potential to reverse harm because we can make things so visible and comprehensible…not from the top down – but from each node to each node in all directions…

  38. Renaissance! I love the idea of incorporating that in the title. Also, I think Scott hit on something with his “Beyond Wikinomics” idea; your brand after all is built around that word so perhaps you should stick with it for the sequel.

    Beyond Wikinomics: The Digital Renaissance that will Reshape Our World

    Digital Renaissance: Tapping the power of Wikinomics to Reinvent the World

    …or perhaps this century will be remembered by historians as:

    The Age of Wikinomics: The Coming Renaissance that will Transform Our World Through Collaborative Intelligence (…or Networked Intelligence if you prefer, but I like the connotation that Collaborative brings)

  39. I like “Rebooting the 21st Century” better than “Rebooting the World” because it has more immediacy. A book called “Rebooting the World” could have been written 20 years ago. “”Rrebooting the 21st Century” has moment. For What it's worth.

  42. Don and Anthony – I strongly suggest that number 13 or a variation of that as the book's title. I think that starting with the word “Rebooting” is unique, catchy, correct and will elicit an instantaneous connection with readers and prospective readers. “Rebooting the 21st Century” is really what you're talking about in the book anyway. It doesn't take a PC geek to understand that in any language – it just takes a user. Any ALL of your readers are users. Rebooting is what you do when everything is frozen and/or in error. The only difference is that after rebooting you don't want to run things the same way as before rebooting – but nonetheless the concept holds. When the 21st Century began, there was widespread worry about Y2K. As it turns out, 2000 – 2009 was a tumultuous and very difficult decade that's increasingly outstripped most operating models and principles – hence the need to reboot the new century while it's still early on.

    But a slight twist to incorporate your prior notion of “Paradigm Shift” might work as well vs the pure computer notion of “operating system” :

    “Rebooting the 21st Century: A New Operating Paradigm for Business and the World”

    Post a Reply
  43. I like the “rebooting” idea, and also talking about “platforms”. I think wiki-anything is a little too narrow and maybe getting dated. Co-creating feels a bit touchy feely, but I think collaboration is a great word to invoke for the kinds of topics you're covering. Maybe something like “Rebooting [something]: Collaboration Platforms [for something]”.

  44. I do not think that using “rebooting” is appropriate. Existing enterprises that are to survive are not shutting down and restarting, they are transforming, albeit more drastically and faster than ever before.

  45. I think your best choice is the Rebooting idea too. It's memorable and has a gentle, sassy technology connotation. Rebooting the 21st Century. Or Rebooting the World. Come up with a good subtitle that gets you mass collaboration idea in there and you've got a great title.

  59. My gut feeling (as I race out the door) to the conversational thread is that 'Rebooting' or 'Reboot' is catchy as well as a universal “lived experience” (i like what Steve Papermaster said re the 'techy' implications – agree it's not big deal) for all those using technology (although i also use the term 'Restart' (not to be confused with the recent Tom Peters book title 'Re-imagine'). I could imagine verbally using this in a conversation:). I also like the notion of “co-creating” although it's unclear to how you define this term/approach … there's a big difference between words such as co-creating, collaboration, collective creativity etc and these distinctions (and associated trajectories) need to be reflected on as well as the associated embodied knowledge strategies. 'Global momentum' also has potential and avoids rehashing existing vernacular such as 'Do it Yourself (watch as Matt Mason's 'The Pirate Dilemma' explored the DIY notion extensively a few years back), Rebuilding, “Wiki…”, Networked' etc. A few title to throw to the group 'ReBoot : co-creating global movements', 'ReBoot : the co-creative imperative', 'ReBoot : co-creative action in a global context' … OR … 'On the move : transforming co-creative flow' (there's a nice connection to what you're suggesting with collective networks and what Csikszentmihalyi's concept of “flow” … one question i'd ask is how much – if at all – you're targeted the book at business as this will influence the use of “creative”), 'Moving minds : Co-creating the Future' …. other words i feel are useful & appropriate are 'design' and 'leading' …

  62. There's something pragmatically usable about the title 'Wikinomics 2.0' that i like too but the purpose of the “new” book (I imagine) is to move forward … suggest 'next' possibilities? Also using “2.0” etc is problematic and associations that could date the book too quickly. In addition, Australia recently a leading consumer food brand 'Vegemite' announcing a new name for a new variety of product – 'iSnack2.0' (http://www.upi.com/Odd_News/2009/09/30/Australi…).

  63. This is such a great idea for a book. There’s so much misery and complaint in the world at the moment, so it’s refreshing to see something that focuses on a positive future, which could actually come to pass.

    With regards to the title, this is one of those situations where the answer is right at the tip of your brain, but you can’t quite get at it.

    Of the titles suggested so far, a lot of the wording is nearly there (although ‘Platform’ sounds like it’s either about gaming or about programming, while ‘Volume’ and ‘Manifesto’ sound like they might be long and arduous reads!)

    How about an amalgamation of two of your titles:
    The Wikinomics Age: Are We the Answer?

    Here’s some other suggestions….

    • Wikiworld: the Age of Mass Collaboration is Here
    • Brave New Wiki: Are We the Answer?
    • The Eye of the Wiki: insert subtitle here

    Saving the best till last, someone suggested this title to me:

    ‘Wikin’ Ass: Changing the World Now!’

  65. Wikiworld was the working title of the book when we started over a year ago. I think Wikinomics is still a cool word but Anthony and I think that to try to invent a new wiki word, might seem a bit retro.

    Post a Reply
  66. Steve – I think that title is great, except for the word, 'rebooting'

    While 'wiki' is probably too mid-2000s, 'reboot' is too 1990s, in the same vein as 'cyber' and 'hacking'. Brings up images of MS DOS and that computer paper with the perforated edges.
    Depends on who the target demographic is, I suppose. If it's Gen X (1990s), then Reboot might work.

  67. Rebooting the 21st Century
    How You Are Leading a Renaissance in Business and the World

    Benefits:

    1. “Rebooting” is memorable and links to technology. Steve Papermaster is convincing about my objections to “Rebooting” as being an imperfect analogy and Bill Leigh seems to agree. John Macfarlane (editor of Walrus) likes this best too.
    2. “The 21st Century” (John Macfarlane below) has immediacy.
    3. “You are Leading” (Arjun Basu below) implies a new model of leadership that is not top down. It also explains the mass collaboration idea that is central to the book.
    4. “Renaissance” (Arjun Basu, Liz McLellan, Jourdy288, robsalk) is a wonderfully powerful and positive concept. And it was the renaissance that transitioned the world from feudal agrarian to modern industrial times).
    5. The word “Business” — helps us relate to our core business audience…

    What does everyone think?

    Have you thought about using “refresh” in place of “reboot?” It's a tad less drastic but perhaps a bit more modern:

  73. I wasn't sold on the “rebooting” idea at first but now I think you swayed me. After looking back on the past decade and the horrible way this century has kicked off, it can sure use a reboot and the best way to do it successfully is through the principles your book will put forth.

    However, I'm not sold on the “You Are” part of the title. I understand what you're getting at but it sounds too individualistic when the premise is focused on how we can all do this together and in fact only through mass collaboration will it happen, not through any one individual effort…wasn't that why you were leaning towards having Networked Intelligence in the title.

    So what about:

    Reboot
    How Networked Intelligence will Lead a Renaissance in the 21st Century

    ….or if you want to put it more in online terms to modernize the reboot idea how about using “Reload” (preferring the Firefox term to IE's “Refresh”)

    In the vein of “microeconomics is to wikinomics (application at the company scale) as macroeconomics is to macrowikinomics (application at the global / world scale).

    As I noted, a little close to Levitt's idea with “Superfreakanomics” but I think the meme is still fresh…..

  75. On second thought, perhaps “Networked Intelligence” is too technical term for the casual business reader. It's really no different than Social Networking but using the power of social networks for far more ideal uses:

    How the Power of Social Networking will Lead a 21st Century Rennaissance

    …or if “Social Networking” is becoming too overused of a term I like incorporating the macrowikinomics idea that was just proposed:

    or Macro Networking?

  77. Reinvention suggests transformation better than reboot, which is akin to reset (ie, no change), but I like reboot because it references technology as the driver of change. But can we reboot something that isn't up and running yet? Are we rebooting the first 10 years of the 21st century that have crashed because they are based on past models, or are we rebooting the world as we have known it? I think it's the world, and I really like the operating system metaphor. Did you consider other tech language, eg. reprogramming (not as edgy as rebooting)

    Rebooting the World: A New Operating System for the 21st Century

    Reprogramming the World: A new Operating System for Planet Earth

    This is a big, all-encompassing concept so I wouldn't limit it to, or specify business in the title

  82. Book title:
    “Ending Insanity: How Conversations, Communities, and Technology Can Change Everything”

    The first part of the title is a play on the definition of insanity (doing the same thing and expecting a different result). The second part plays into your core premise that through social collaborations/connections–facilitated by technolgy–we can chart a different course.

  85. We had originally thought Wikiworld would be a good title but isn't the “wiki” thing done? Wikinomics is still a great term and we did invent it. But to coin a neologism containing “wiki?” Not sure that's a good idea.

    I like the term Age of Networked Intelligence as the best term to describe what comes after the Industrial Age.

    I also like the idea of Rebuilding the World, but maybe with the economy improving “rebuilding” might seem like the wrong term. then again all our institutions need to be rebuilt — from the corporation and government, to the media, science and the transportation system.

    On the other hand: is it really that much that is changing, viewed from a distance? Isn't it so that greed has been the major problem in the last decades (overpaid managers, greedy consumers wanting to own stuff, throwing away to much, greedy share-holders to much focused on short term gain, using up limited resources etc)?

    And now there is a growing number of people that see we need to be more responsible, for others, for the resources etc? Would something like “From the age of Greed, to the age of Green” be an option? Or “From Individual Greed to Shared Green” or something more catchy to get in the network collective thingy? “The Collective Fight Against Greed”? “Sharing to Fight Greed”?

  96. Hi Don,

    I understand your reluctance to use the term “Wiki” but I have to say that you shouldn't overlook the power of the brand/name in the marketplace. It would undoubtedly assist with sales of your new book. So I was thinking of something like “Wiki The World” or a variant of that (“Wikiworld” isn't bad – but using “Wiki” as a verb sounds more active and in line with what your book is about).

    I have a strong aversion to a number of buzz-words that have been out there and beaten to death: Reinvention, Manifesto, Networked. And some of the titles you've listed are very close to books that have already been published (“The Age of the Network” by the folks at NetAge – published in 1994!).

    I assume you chose the word “wiki” as part of the title for the first book because wikis are typically powered by wiki software and are often used to create collaborative websites, to power community websites, for personal note taking, in corporate intranets, and in knowledge management systems. It would be interesting if there was another technology-oriented word that relates well to a global transformation. “Open Source” is intriguing – as in “Open-Sourcing The World” or “Open-Source the World!”

    Just a thought.

  102. I haven't read your new book, obviously. But I have my view on where the new order should bring us. It is about new economics where relationship value becomes key. Sustainability, green, etc. are utterly important. But that will only happen if the values and inner workings of the new order support it automatically. The focus (and the name) should be on the new order and not on the result of it.

    Open Source(d) is part of the new enabling paradigm, same goes for Wiki. “Social” is the overall term. Integrity, trust, etc. comes with it.

    Companies, but also governments, social groups, etc. are part of and build the economic system. Economics still works ars a term here.

    Could “Socionomics” work?

    Or: “Socionomics – The age of networked intelligence”

  103. Hi Don

    Been pondering on this. I think the following would be a good title:
    'Wikiworld: How the Digital Revolution has changed everything'
    I like Wikiworld as it's the grown up brother to Wikinomics which focuses on one aspect (the business/economic) of the digital revolution.

    Networked Intelligance has now infiltrated every aspect of our life and world and therefore Wikiworld is appropriate. The term also leverages on your previous success. It builds on the Wiki brand you have created.

    What comes next? 'WikiLife', WikiSapien'…

    Good luck!

  112. Don – Is the audience for the book – business people or are you trying to make the argument that the system has opened up for innovators of all sorts and for people at all levels? Is it aimed at the technophilic or all the rest of the people who do not yet really understand how important they have become?

    So many of these titles are coming from an IT frame – and I think it goes so much beyond that. I am hacking the neighborhood. Sure tech makes it possible but the vision is decidedly analog – high touch and very human.

    Your view on the subjects is clearly far ranging enough – encompassing the wild disruptions ( need a more positive word!) across all sectors and segments… The title needs to bring people into that transformation…and not simply be #1 on the Business Best Sellers list….Or the Technology lists…

  113. Don and Anthony,

    Here is my suggestion (based on combining some suggestions below):
    “21st Century Reboot: The Digital Renaissance
    Tapping the power of Wikinomics to define your future”

    The outline I've reviewed would suggest that many of the concepts will help organizations begin thinking about how they might operationalize to define the future or next chapter of their business or institution. I also strongly believe that having Wikinomics in the title continues to forge the brand and take the intial concepts of Wikinomics to the next plateau.

    The first time I heard of your new book the “Renaissance” came to my mind. Mark though, it took a few hundred years before man realized what really took place- and named it the Renaissance. Hence, in an effort to be humble, it might be too early to know what will be(come). But you are putting the light on what has happened – and as it seems to many of us – what must be done. You provide the light. We all need to act. And the reasons as well as drivers are explained in the book (I assume ;).

  118. dontapscott & Rob Caldera are close in my opinion in the comments above (another term that was interesting since my last post is 'WEconomy'). 'Rebooting' or 'Reboot' seems to increasingly suggest what Don is aiming with the new book = beyond 'wiki'. While I initially had issues with the length of 'Rebooting the 21st Century' it's clarity is strong. Still, I believe in terms of the “bookshelf” context 'Reboot' is all that is needed as a subtitle will supports a broader explanation. Perhaps 'Reboot!' aligns closer to what's needed?

  119. It is not grabbing me on the bookshelf because it looks like a mashup of several overused terms.
    Rebooting – I am late to the conversation, but this term feels off to me.
    From a techie perspective, “reboot” is re-initializing the OS. Your premise is quite the opposite.
    As to associations, it evokes a more dated technology framework – operating systems, personal computers, servers, operating systems … all concepts that are increasingly sounding dated to current and future generations.
    In terms of over-use, it feels a little threadbare linking technology to social evolution.
    Leading, 21st century – 15+ years of books using these terms, which sounds conventional – again against the premise of the book.
    Renaissance – Not bad, but I think the idea is not a cultural re-awakening but a fundamental restructuring of social contribution centered more on individual relationships and less on institutional ones. I can see drawing a link to the economic and social evolution of the time, but I think that undermines the strength of the idea and message – It can stand on its own.
    Business – Fair, but how many top-selling “business” books for this audience (Freakonomics, Tipping Point, Brand Gap, etc.) use the word 'business'? Honest question as I don't know the answer.

    I think you need to stretch the title – this combination sounds a little too far back in the peloton.

  124. Ok, one more. Don, you floated the idea of using “Renaissance” in the title out there earlier and most of us liked it, including me. However, thinking about it again while the Renaissance was a slow revival of art and science, meaning a return to what had been lost through the Dark Ages, it was the following Age of Enlightenment that truly transformed the world to more modern times.

    The Enlightenment is described as “characterized by belief in the power of human reason and by innovations in political, religious, and educational doctrine” (substitute institutions for doctrine). One of the primary elements of the Enlightenment was the rise of the public sphere, meaning the fostering of conditions necessary for “rational, critical, and genuinely open discussion of public issues” for Enlightenment ideas to be spread and discussed (paraphrased from Wikipedia). While some of this was achieved, it never fully realized it's potential but we now have the tools to do so.

    This is much more fitting than the Renaissance. With that thought:

    Net Society
    Envisioning a New Age of Enlightenment Powered by Networked Intelligence

    or something else riffing off of the Enlightenment theme.

  125. How about “We are the new world”? The advantage – it's about us vs. an observative title. I called my blog and planned book “Icentered – The web according to me” since it's about a paradigm shift that empowers a web where I, the user, am at the center, with the wheel in my hands, proactively creating pacts and food chains around me. I chose his titles to give the feeling of “in medias res” and not talking about – reinforcing a sense of belonging, bondingwith the message, participation and involvement.

  127. Given more thought to the title and the idea of networked intelligence which is central to the ideas of the book relates to the word Noosphere….

    which is defined on Wikipedia as:

    “Noosphere (pronounced /ˈnoʊ.ɵsfɪər/; sometimes noösphere), according to the thought of Vladimir Vernadsky and Teilhard de Chardin, denotes the “sphere of human thought”….For Teilhard, the noosphere emerges through and is constituted by the interaction of human minds. The noosphere has grown in step with the organization of the human mass in relation to itself as it populates the earth. As mankind organizes itself in more complex social networks, the higher the noosphere will grow in awareness. This is an extension of Teilhard's Law of Complexity/Consciousness, the law describing the nature of evolution in the universe. Teilhard argued that the noosphere is growing towards an even greater integration and unification, culminating in the Omega point, which he saw as the goal of history. The goal of history, then, is an apex of thought/consciousness.”
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Noosphere

    What we/you, Don, are talking about is the Noosphere consiousness which has been spoken about for some time now…not in a “geek” way but scientifically….since part of this geek connection will be an attempt to resolve “energy” issues thur technologies and new ways of collaberation why not bring this word into play in a BIG Way by re introducing a concept that

  128. one more reference to Noosphere noted here:

    HARDWIRING OF THE NOOSPHERE

    by Jonathan McGregor Bethel

    How many of you got online today and interacted in a cybernetic way in some form or another, either by browsing the world-wide-web, checking email, chatting live with others on a chat program, or corresponding with others on an internet social network, like Myspace? If you did, then you were partaking of the awakening noosphere, the thought envelope surrounding the planet that is now coming to fruition. Transpersonal psychologists have known since CG Jung that individual man partakes of and gives back to a collective unconscious, a global, shared field of mind full of archetypes that impel us into certain behaviors and involve particular thought forms. An interface is now forming between this morphogenetic thought field, this collective unconscious, and the now burgeoning cyber-technological, globe-girding internet.

    Many philosophers, including myself, promulgate the notion that the internet is the hardwiring for the now forming noosphere. The concept of the noosphere was an idea put forth by the French, Jesuit Priest and Paleontologist, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin. The supposition that Teilhard put forth was the novel insight that the biosphere of our planet, the complete kingdom of nature in the air, in the oceans, and on the land surrounding our Earth, will soon extrude a global layer of synced and connected thought, the Noosphere. Upon crystallization of the noosphere, a field of global telepathic connectivity will have formed, and the Omega Point will dawn, ushering in a new paradigm and lifting man to a new level of transcendence. Teilhard had his sentiment of networked thought in the noosphere nearly fifty years before the internet came into being, and he came to his assumptions after studying Darwinian evolution and the course of biology.”

  139. Giving “reboot” a second thought I come to think it is missing the point. Reboot is about throwing everything away and start all over again without learning from the past. What we talking about here is building upon everything that has been accomplished in the past and going into a new direction.

    A similar issue I have with “re-industializing”. Industrializing the world has been done and has been done right. It gives us a sound base camp from which to move on. Now is the time to explore a new direction and that is what the book is about.

    Therefore I propose:

    “TurningPoint – Towards a New Operating Paradigm for Business and the World”

    TurningPoint suggests moving into a new direction. And in order to stay away from a 180 degrees turn (which means walking back), the “Towards a New …” should be added.

  141. I like 1. the reboot idea. 2. The Networked Intelligence Idea

    Put them together and you have:

    REBOOTING THE WORLD: For the Age of Networked Intelligence

    Three Reasons:

    1) Reboot is a universally understood concept. We've all rebooted a computer, taken a vacation to 'reboot' our lives, and started a task over with a totally different approach as part of a reboot. It is also the most popular concept on this blog.
    2) Feature 'networked intelligence' coined in 1995 by Don- an idea whose time has perhaps finally come. This is significant, as every one of Don's book titles have either created or popularized a concept 'Paradigm Shift' 'Digital Economy' 'Naked Corporation' and most recently with Anthony Williams- 'Wikinomics.' Nothing more powerful than neologisms…anyone heard of Freakanomics? Also- Reboot has potential to become a major buzzword.
    3) It is concise and serious, without sounding too dry. My primary issue with all of these “How we can change the world,” and “You are going to revolutionize the economy” is, quite simply, that they don't sound serious. On the flip side, a “New operating system for the 21st century” is very dry and the notion of an OS runs the risk of being totally foreign to many people. This title hits the right chord in the middle.

  142. Here is the “Age of Networked Intelligence” idea. Basically we're shifting from the industrial age to a new age. But what to call it? Kwowledge Age? (zzz) Age of Participation? …hm.

    This is much better:

    Printing gave humanity the written word, and today’s technology revolution continues this process. People everywhere now have access to myriad forms of recorded information travelling at the speed of light.

    But today’s revolution is profoundly different. While printing gave humanity the chance to read the written word, the web makes everyone a publisher. This is giving us new access to the knowledge contained in the crania of our fellow humans, on a global scale. It’s an entirely new step in our communications evolution. Printing enabled the distribution of knowledge. The web enables the distribution of intelligence. Printing enabled people to know. The web enables people to collaborate and to learn collectively.
    This is the age of networked intelligence, as people begin to work collaboratively in radically new ways.

    The effect on all our institutions is incalculable. But through the haze and all the turmoil, the contours of fresh new forms of human organization, as revolutionary as those of centuries ago, are beginning to reveal themselves.

  143. Damn, one probably wants to put everything that's in the book, in the title :-) We simply can't. Luckily we have the book behind the title in which we can access all these great concepts!

    Centuries ago, would you have called a book something like “The Age of Distributed Knowledge”? I don't think so (but I must admit right now I don't know how to call a book about such a movement back then).

    On the front of the book it might be great to add a short explanation introducing the concept of the Age of Networked Intelligence. The title itself, in my view, should be more catchy and should invite potential readers to join you on this great journey. That's why I coined “TurningPoint”. This is about going somewhere new and has the potential of gaining a “trademark value” similar to Wikinomics.

    Just my two cents …

  144. Hi guys,
    Here are a few ideas I thought about and emailed to Niki:

    -Wikinomics 2.0: The/A Social Webolution
    (“WEBOLUTION” is a combination Revolution (signifying a new revolution post the i.e. industrialized revolution) + the Web – since we use “web” in so many words today that are used in mass collaboration like “webex” and “webinar” etc…)

    -Webolution: The Age of Networked Intelligence

    -e-VOLUTION…

    -Webopia…

    -Global Netwarming…

  145. Alex, it is exactly the popularity of “Reboot” that turns me off – YABORS (Yet Another Book On Rebooting Something ;). And I am afraid that “Networked intelligence” has become equally popular/buzzy over the years. Furthermore, rebooting is just starting fresh, with the old OS (institutions). Hence, “Upgrading the world” or “Upgrading society” might be better.

    “Wikinomocis” is great, because it is unique and an exremely good mashup of two strong concepts. I like “Re”, and we like the profoundness of whats going on, at least with many references here to the Renaissance.

    So, after re-reading your (appearantly most popular :) suggestion, Don's explanation about Networked intelligence, and Mark's “Welcome” I came up with another “tweak”:

    RELIGHTMENT: mankind has gone online – welcome to the business of revolutionizing society!

    Post a Reply
  146. Alex – I like your argument and Mark's tweak I think works. Definitely the best suggestion so far.

    Reboot it becoming a popular term again since the cyber-punk days of the mid-1990s. Here's what books are on the market at the mo: http://tinyurl.com/yze9x9j – there's already a book called 'Reboot world', but it's a science-fiction book.

    And here's what “rebooting the world” came up with on Google: http://tinyurl.com/yfblbay – again, there's lots of terms that were popular in 2009. Do we want a title which reflects the zeitgeist or looks forward to the next one?

    Richard, I agree with most of your points and I love 'mankind has gone online' because it's got rhythm and rhyme, but 'relightment' doesn't make too much sense. Do you mean 'relightenment'? Kinda sounds like a service your electrician might provide you.

    Ok, how about something completely different?:

  148. We need to make it a norm to be tech savvy and engaged in civic and community matters. It needs to be the NORM, not just for those INTERESTED in it.
    The platforms are built, the tools are available how do we make it more attractive for more people to integrate it into their lives in order to enrich their lives? From the list, I like the title: The Age of Participation because it's inclusive, speaks to a new age where we must participate not out of obligation but because it's good for us.

  149. I keep asking myself if these titles (including my own contributions on this page) will jump off the bookshelf the way Wikinomics did and I keep answering no.

    Networked Intelligence just doesn’t have that Wikinomics ring to it. I think it might turn off too many people, sound too technical.

    Besides, what are we trying to imply when we say networked intelligence? We’re talking about the ubiquitous availability of knowledge – whether people turn that into intelligence or not is up to them so maybe it's misleading as a title. But I agree that the Age of Knowledge has no pizazz for a title. How can you spruce up ‘knowledge’ for the title?

    Also, if we’re looking at this from an “Age” perspective, ask yourself how will historians look back on this period. If before us was the Industrial Revolution then surely now is the Communications Revolution (I think even more so than an information revolution). Instant connectivity to anyone in the world and the ability to expand that into networks of connectivity is how we’re tapping into all this knowledge, but whether it’s the phone or the net it’s still communications. So how about:

    Hyper-Knowledge!
    How the Age of Connectivity will Revolutionize our Institutions and Businesses
    or
    How the Communications Revolution is Ushering in an Age of Empowerment (…will Reshape Society…or Reshape our Institutions and Business)

    or simply

    Hyper-Knowledge!
    Welcome to the Age of Engage (credit to Mark Bradford for the ‘Welcome’ idea; it’s very inviting for a title.)

    Plus, on the other most popular idea on this blog – “Reboot” – I have a similar feeling. There are many books already out there with that phrase. While we can argue all day whether it’s usage is correct or not (technically it’s not since rebooting brings back up the same operating system that crashed before, which we DON”T want to do, even though most people will get the general gist of what it's about) I just think it’s just not original enough for the author of such a great title like Wikinomics.

  150. Two last ones I'll offer…perhaps a bit offbeat:

    Sailing the 7C’s to a New World:
    How New Paradigms in Communication, Collaboration, Connectivity, Community, Customization, Conversation, and Content Creation are Reshaping our World

    Erase the Slate
    How the Age of Connectivity will Reset the World

    This has been a fun exercise! Thanks, Don and Anthony.

  151. Rob, and everybody else,
    What got me hooked the first time I noticed Don's and Antony's new book project was their conclusion (which I also reached a few years ago ;) “we can reinvent and rebuild just about every institution in society for an age of networked intelligence”. THIS insight is what is (relativerly) novel. And I preferr to say “we should…” (not can).

    All the other things (networked intelligence, communications revolution, participiation, co-creation, conversation, citizien generated content, wikis, augmented reality, etc) are generally, if maybe not fully understood at least recognized by the potential “readers” (which is an obsolete word ;)

    Of course it's up to the authors, but there is a difference between “the world” and it's “societies”. If my understanding of the book project is correct, the title word that replace “wikinomics” must this time clearly indicate that it is about “institutions in society”. Furthermore, this word will be more valuable if it's unique (good with Google), memorable, and intriguing. Rebuilding, reinventing, participation, rebooting, etc does not do it. In Rob's words, will not create “jump off the bookshelf”.

    In a similar fasthion neither “connected” nor “networked” (intelligence) directly points to the state mankind has reached. Books, as well as Television, connected us in relatively slow networks. But “online” (real time interaction) makes a difference.

    Perhaps lame, but “Relightenment” is still the best I can come up with. So I still stick with:

    RELIGHTENMENT: mankind has gone online – welcome to the business of revolutionizing society!

    And I agree, it is a fun – and mind shaping excercise. Thanks to us all!

    p.s. Just realized that “Real Time” (which is a really hot concept) has not appeared in the disqussion. Even so, I skip it because the changes we are about to do will take some time. Real time is just a driver and enabler. d.s.

    Post a Reply
  152. Rob makes an important point when he says “Networked Intelligence just doesn’t have that Wikinomics ring to it” … this is important and shouldn't (in my opinion) be rushed.

    FYI, an interesting tweet this morning: “@rww Google: The Word of the Decade http://bit.ly/8URS18“. DeBono is really good at coming up with new words … one of his books is called 'Sur/petition' <http://homepage.mac.com/bobembry/studio/biz/con…> and <http://www.edwarddebono.com/PassageDetail.php?p

    “how competition will no longer be enough in the future and why there will be a need to shift to sur/petition. The word competition means ‘seeking together.’ This means accepting that you are running in the same race as your competitors. Your behaviour is quite largely determined by the behaviour of the competitors. Sur/petition means “seeking above” or creating your own race.” (de Bono).

  153. I've had a concept percolating for some years – “WeBeDo” – that may be useful in relation to my recent comments on the need for new words/languages for enabling new conversations. It has emerged through my research into what new thinking and ways of practicing are required in the future – to embrace and reflect on ‘how’ we think instead of purely ‘what’ we think?

    “WeBeDo” = pure co-creative thinking and acting. I'll resist defining further as its useful for others to respond without me providing a guiding/explanatory hand (as per the bookshelf).

    WeBeDo: Welcome to the Age of Networked Intelligence
    WeBeDo: Democracy in the Age of Networked Intelligence
    WeBeDo: Welcome to democracy in the Age of Networked Intelligence
    WeBeDo: All are welcome in the Age of Networked Intelligence
    WeBeDo: Everyone's welcome in the Age of Networked Intelligence

    Looking forward to hearing your final title.
    Thanks for the invitation Don and Anthony.

  156. A few things…
    1. Loving Opennomics!…

    2. Suggestion:
    “the Global Remix”
    – I like the suggestion right off the bat that what we're looking at is a new methodology
    to better create systems that support us, and that it is this “remixing” that has allowed us to address the complexity of our time. Remix includes approaches such as: co-creation, collaboration, mash-up, multi-discipline, re-purposing or scaling and insists on values of the social web such as openness, authenticity & transparency.

    3. rifting off of other suggestions:
    “Reboot:” A global upgrade for the 21stC” or condensed: “Reboot: the global upgrade,” “The Global Reboot”

    4. general comments:
    – although I like Networked Intelligence and think it'll be a strong component in the book, I caution against using it in the title, since I think it alienates many people up front.
    – words like “new” and “future” seem to date themselves right out of the gate. 21stC, although more academic sounding, better encapsulates the “new paradigm” as it will be discussed in the book

  159. I love the Remix idea. But Larry Lessig has a book out by that title… good book to0… cites Wikinomics multiple times.

    I hear you about Networked Intelligence. But is there a better term to describe the new age? Knowledge age (zzz). Age of Participation is trite. Digital Age? — that's been done. Really struggling with this one.

  165. (quick post re 'reboot'): Phase used today – “It's time for a great reboot” – in the context of the following article:

    “Ethical edge is advantage reconceived for the 21st century. It's an institutional innovation: the institution of “advantage” rebuilt for a threadbare, fraying, global economy. It's a radical new definition of “advantage” that blows past the stale, tired idea of competitive advantage.

    It's time for a great reboot. Today's great challenge isn't blindly building countries, companies, or households on a broken set of institutions. It is reimagining new institutions for a hyperconnected world.” (Haque) http://blogs.hbr.org/haque/2010/01/google_china

    … 'Reboot' works … there's the comfort of existing knowledge. the question is whether the context demands new words/language to lead the discourse.

    Post a Reply
  166. The term 'reboot' is pretty cheesy and very 1990's. I would have thought something that stresses a new synthesis in the technium thus removing hierarchies embedded from feudalism and placing greater emphasis on the 'human herd'. Maybe something that centres around the concept of 'Digital Darminism'?

  171. Please stay away from “Darwinism” – you would be attracting a flock of lunatic flying monkeys who are trying to destroy science education in the US to all online discussions of your content. That way lies madness.

    Also as with the New Deal language – adding a left/right frame that is unnecessary…and probably harmful.

    As fun as the word 'manifesto' it has been overused grievously in the last 10 years, and mostly by people who would never go near a barricade. I really think Ted Kozinski took all the fun out of that one.

    I do like Co-Creating the Future – but I would suggest we are all always co-creating the future with every choice we make including the choice to be a couch potato. So I would add something to that which makes clear the catalytic nature of these new tools….

    3-16 and 19-20: now we live in turbulent times and have too much “news”, “revolutions”, “rebuildings” etc. It may be considered as smth. negative as people are tired of changes (which are negative so far). Exception is Reboot(ing).

  181. I also like Macrowikinomics, especially if you want to stick with the Wiki theme to create linkage with your previous book. Of all the Wiki titles thrown around on this page, this is the best.

    The subtitle is decent, but I keep going back and forth over the idea of “rebooting” and the duplicity of it being simple and common enough of a term to make people understand the premise of the book, vs. it being outdated and technically not correct with regards to what the book is promoting.

    In today's NY Times, Thomas Friedman's Op Ed had this paragraph:
    “John Hagel, the noted business writer and management consultant argues in his recently released “Shift Index” that we’re in the midst of “The Big Shift.” We are shifting from a world where the key source of strategic advantage was in protecting and extracting value from a given set of knowledge stocks — the sum total of what we know at any point in time, which is now depreciating at an accelerating pace — into a world in which the focus of value creation is effective participation in knowledge flows, which are constantly being renewed.”

    The idea of Knowledge Flows caught my attention and seemed appropriate for your concept (or “Knowledge Streams” since the term “Lifestreaming” is now becoming popular as an alternative to blogging). So how about:

    Macrowikinomics: Harnessing Knowledge Streams to Reinvent Business and the World

    Macrowikinomics: Harnessing Knowledge Streams to Create a New Paradigm for Business and the World

    Macrowikinomics: How society can prosper in the era of Knowledge Flow

    Macrowikinomics: Reinventing Business and Institutions for the Age of Knowledge Streams

    …or so many other ways the subtitle can be said.

    Also, one more completely different idea. I was thinking of Isaac Asimov's Foundation series and it's premise of capturing the entire knowledge of mankind in order to rebuild civilization after a predicted period of a Dark Age, and how there was some similarity, so:

    New Foundation: Harnessing our Collective Knowledge to Build Better Businesses and Institutions for the 21st Century ………..(or just …to Build a Better 21st Century)

    Thanks!

    The book store chains and distributors and our publisher are “ecstatic” about the book and the title. We want it to me #1 on the NYT Non-fiction list and to be used everywhere to change the world. it's time — the world is broken and we need to reinvent much of it. Stay tuned.

  183. Having found 'Wikinomics' to be a pretty transformative read in terms in my perceptions of the changes going on in the world around us and where I fit into it all, I'm delighted to play a tiny part in the follow up title (by adding a comment here).

    Liking most of the selections above. Don, your choice of 'MACROWIKINOMICS: Rebooting Business and Society' is good, although I think that Macrowikinomics is a slightly unwieldy word in a reductivist age where things get shorter rather than longer!

    Personally in favour of some form of 'Wikinomics Manifesto' finding its way into the pages – it's a bold statement saying 'this is the way forward'.

  184. Don,

    Thanks so much, however I can't take the credit. The first to come up with the Macrowikinomics idea in this thread was Eryc Branham. I think I was one of the first to state that it was a good idea and I did so in a response to one of your comments that came before Eryc's in this thread so that's why it may have looked like I was the first to mention it (plus, I used it in subsequent suggestions when the subtitle was being discussed). I wish I did!

    Great idea Eryc and great overall title for the book. I can't wait until this one comes out. A book concept like this is really needed now, especially after the latest Supreme Court decision that will further reduce the power of citizens to make a difference (in the US at least).

    Good luck!

  187. Guess 'Manifesto' does sound a little 19th Century! Well, every era had ideas that get recycled when the time is right. Perhaps the old publishing industry's still not going to go for a manifesto through.

    So many alternatives, each with their own +'s and -'s. 'Paradigm's not inclusive enough a term, yet represents the shift needed. 'Manifesto's too Marxist for a business publishing imprint. 'Guidebook's soft and palatable enough, yet not too appropriate when talking about something that needs to be done rather than what has already been done…

    One of the challenges, Don, about crowdsourcing suggestions is that it must get mighty difficult to make choices when you have that many more choices available! Well done on making one anyway.

  193. Sorry to say, but I wouldn't pick up any of the above books – they sound like just more 2008 blahblah wishful thinking about this bright new post-hierarchical world where the authors aren't out there scrapping for a living.

    So IF the book is about (I hope it is) how two years ago we could say we = the masses = collaboration and that's super, now we can say we = worn out masses because the party got too big and sloppy and globby = getting somewhere but inefficiently, THEN we need some new ground rules. Starting point: collaboration on a more human scale that makes Innovation, Collaboration, Self Organization, Transparency, Sharing, Interdependence and Integrity manageable. Suggested title: We, the mini-masses.
