Visionary of the year?! Thank you, SNCR.
by Josh Bernoff
In a development that left me breathless, SNCR (The Society for New Communications Research) has decided o give Charlene Li and me its "Visionary of the Year" award. We're getting honored along with the founders of Twitter for Innovators of the Year, and Dell for Brand of the Year.
I'm even more tickled by this since the manuscript for Groundswell, the book that led to this honor, was completed in November 2007, almost a full year ago. You try to be visionary with that sort of delay . . .
If you're not familiar with SNCR, it's a great organization that helps share research and insights on new developments in media and marketing. From their site:
The Society for New Communications Research is a global nonprofit think tank dedicated to the advanced study of the latest developments in new media and communications, and their effect on traditional media and business models, communications, culture and society.
SNCR will be giving out the awards at its annual Symposium in Cambridge, Massachusetts on Friday, November 14 (right down the street from me). Have a look at the event -- it's well worth a visit to get a look at what's on the leading edge of new communications technologies in business. I'll see you there.
