A few years ago, a small crowd of friends gathered a couple of times around the reading of Seth Godin’s It’s Your Turn, to explore the possibilities of what we might get up to for the good of others.
Somebody came up with the title #libraryofawesome for our endeavour and it has remained an experimental project for me.
It directly led to the last two VOXedinburgh events, focusing on telling our stories and making a difference for others, involving many of the people who’d originally gathered.
I’m beginning to wonder, What next?
It’s people that make the most incredible libraries of all – books, DVDs, podcasts are all extensions of people. We have so much to offer collectively, but also individually, making ourselves available to another can make a huge difference.
