Exclusive Interview: Malcolm Gladwell discusses Web 2.0

Last week, I had the pleasure of attending the World Innovation Forum by the HSM Group. Participants at the World Innovation Forum came away with new understanding of how businesses can pivot and become more innovative as well as plenty of insights about what the future holds.

As a blogger, and member of the virtual media, I was delighted to hear that I was welcome to interview 2 of the guest (my top 2 picks) Malcolm Gladwell and Clayton Christensen.

What follows is a very raw and unpolished podcast, because that’s the way it happened. You are getting the full experience I had at sitting down with the man himself. I hope you come away inspired by Malcolm’s view of Web 2.0 and his heartfelt feeling on how the blogosphere can act as a self regulating body.

About Malcolm

Malcolm is a writer for the New Yorker magazine, and the author of two books, “The Tipping Point: How Little Things Make a Big Difference” and “Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking.” He was born in England, and raised in southwestern Ontario in Canada. Now he lives in New York City.

Malcolm’s great claim to fame is that I’m from the town where they invented the BlackBerry. His family also believes (with some justification) that we are distantly related to Colin Powell. He invites you to look closely at his photograph and draw your own conclusions.

Dont miss my podcast with Clayton Christensen later this week!

    Great interview! Had never heard of Malcolm Gladwell before this- some interesting things he said. I’ll have to check out “The Tipping Point”. Thanks for posting that!
