"Young World Rising" by Rob Salkowitz

Posting here after a long time. Looks like E 2.0 Boston was a big success; wish I could have attended.I thought the E 2.0 gang would appreciate a pointer to a new book by Rob Salkowitz, Young World Rising, where he examines the bottom-up revolution being created by young entrepreneurs in parts of the world with a young and growing working-age population. I have previously talked about Rob and his work on the interplay of demographics, generational effects and 2.0 technologies (in my SM vs. KM post, and in my review of Rob's previous book, co-authored with Dan Rasmus). This is easily his best work so far.I posted an interview with Rob on the Trailmeme blog, with links to the book. Rob shared some fascinating views on technology and demographics, and I have included a brief introduction to his work for those who are new to this important subject. Check it out.
