Kawasaki and Netiquette
- Dear Friends,
Most of you would have herad of Guy Kawasaki?
I am sure Manivannan knows. He is the guy who wrote the famous
book, best seller called 'The Macintosh Way'. He has also
come up with 'Selling the Dream'. Nice book -that. Its
all about evangelism lined up and connected to corporate
business. He has done a good job.
He has given a preface to a book called, 'Netiquette'
by Virginia Shea published by Albion Books .
It is interesting reading, to know about the books that
he prefers much.
When I die, I am going to have a handful of books placed in
my coffin. I need them to ensure for eternity that my grammar
is correct, that I'm entertained, and that I'm inspired. The books are:
The Chicago Manual of Style
The Elements of Style (William Strunk, Jr. and E. B. White)
Writers on Writing (Jon Winokur)
If You Want to Write (Brenda Ueland)
Now whoever buries me will have to squeeze one more book into
my coffin: Netiquette by Virginia Shea. Where I'm going, there
will be electronic mail (and it won't be owned by Microsoft).
For all eternity, I want to observe the rules that Shea has
established for network etiquette.
You're probably standing in the computer section of a bookstore
surrounded by too many books about the Internet and the information
superhighway. You're confused: Which book do I really need about
all this email stuff?
It doesn't matter which of the technical books you buy because
they all contain the same downloaded files. However, if you want
to read a book that was written and that teaches you principles
that you will use for a long, long time, this is it.
