New Book

It's been some time since i bought my last book (which was usually a novel). Today, i bought a new book again, called Wikinomics. The author is Don Tapscott and Anthony D. Williams. My lecturer, Mr. Jazi Eko has told me that this book was good and i didn't have a chance to proof that until today.

Wiki and mass collaboration indeed bring huge changes to how people do on their business activities nowadays. I was still amazed on one of the example written on that big about GoldCorp. They avoided bankruptcy by using collaboration power to locate a new gold source which will take many years if they do it by themselves. It was written that the collaboration process has cut the process by 2-3 years, which has huge impact on the company's business activities.

Well, i think i will spend this weekend to finish this book.
