One man who has hugely influenced me is Henry David Thoreau. I love his work and the lasting influence he had on the world. A friend reminded me of him while browsing in a London bookshop and I bought her his book Walden and then later googled for him on YouTube and found this video.

And here one of my favorite quotes On grading the whole surface of the planet that's a little too long to embed here. Its more relevent today after over 100 years than it has ever been - today we really are in danger of grading the whole planet!

If you are interested in Knowledge Management, the Knowledge Café or the role of conversation in organizational life then you my be interested in this online book I am writing on Conversational Leadership
