|Don Tapscott's latest book
Digital Capital, co-authored with David
Ticoll and Alex Lowy came out in the summer of 2000 and was widely read
by many in North America. Although we will not use specific chapters from
this book in our IEC courses - since it is written not in text style but
for managers - we still recommend acquiring it because many senior managers
have read it and you should know what Tapscott is evangelizing, whether
you agree or disagree with his thesis. Tapscott is a proud Canadian and
one of the few "Internet Canucks" known well in the U.S.
|Don Tapscott's 1995 book,
The Digital Economy, is widely read
and highly recommended. Tapscott has a web site under the name Alliance
for Converging technologies at www.actnet.com/
