The Baked In Wikiblog is now live. The wikiblog is a place to extend the conversation that Alex and I started in the book. Dennis Bernhard, one of the folks that offered to review the book, does a great job of explaining how it works, from a readers point of view:
Remember when your mother would use the famous “do as I say, not as I do” trick on you. Well, this book is following the motto of “do as I say, and as I do”. Not only does it preach baking in, it actually does it. Throughout the book, the authors have included Twitter hash tags to keep the conversation going beyond the book, into the Twiterverse and their blog. This is a great way to bake conversation and word of mouth directly into the book. Instead of having readers from all over the world having haphazard conversations all over the web, the predetermined hash tags and blog allow readers to interact with the book and with each other. This will eventually lead to interesting and thought provoking conversations that will only strengthen the ideas within this book.
The conversation is starting to get quite a lot of momentum on the wikiblog. Stop by and jump in.
