Now, more than ever, we need to shake things up.

Now, more than ever, we need a different way of thinking, a useful way to focus and the energy to turn the game around. I hope a new ebook I’ve organized will get you started on that path. It took months, but I think you’ll find it worth it the effort. (Download here).

Here are more than seventy big thinkers, each sharing an idea for you to think about as we head into the new year. From bestselling author Elizabeth Gilbert to brilliant tech thinker Kevin Kelly, from publisher Tim O’Reilly to radio host Dave Ramsey, there are some important people riffing about important ideas here. The ebook includes Tom Peters, Jackie Huba and Jason Fried, along with Gina Trapani, Bill Taylor and Alan Webber.

Here’s the deal: it’s free. Download it here. Or from any of the many sites around the web that are posting it with insightful commentary. Tweet it, email it, post it on your own site. I think it might be fun to make up your own riff and post it on your blog or online profile as well. It’s a good exercise. Can we get this in the hands of 5 million people? You can find an easy to use version on Scribd as well and from wepapers. Please share.

Have fun. Here’s to a year with ideas even bigger than these. Here’s a lens with all the links plus an astonishing array of books by our authors.

Heather Says: Seth – thanks for this great E-Book. I found it to be a great read, and a valuable learning experience. Stay tuned for my riff.

Kudos to Ribbit Mobile for figuring out why their Ribbit instructions on the website wouldn’t work for the Blackberry.  For those of you experiencing the same thing, all you need to do is enter *712064531140 and press SEND/CALL on your Blackberry. Then log back into Ribbit Mobile to complete registration.

Then you can use their service. I’ve been using it for several days now, allowing calls to go through to VM and getting the texts sent to me. Their voice recognition software is only as good as the voice mail that is left. But never fear, you can still hear the original voicemail either by calling the new VM number they give you or listening to it directly from the web interface.  I still stand by my original post – Ribbit needs to work the bugs out of the user interface, but they still get two thumbs up for figuring out the problem and sending me directions for resolution.
