Henry Jenkins is the founder of MIT Convergence Culture Consortium of which this blog is a part. He, too, blogs. His latest book, Convergence Culture, has jumped from 145,103 up to 1,331 in Amazon rankings in one day. I've been privileged to read the book in its early drafts, and like many of Dr. Jenkins's lectures, it's an eye-opening text written in plain English.
Here's one blurb that describes the book:
"Henry Jenkins is the 21st century McLuhan I've been waiting for. If you are a parent, a student, an educator, a creator or consumer of popular culture, an entrepreneur, or a media industry executive, you need to understand convergence culture. And you will only after reading Henry Jenkins."
