TED Talk Thursday: Seth Godin and the Tribes We Lead

Tomorrow, Friday, August 22nd, I am a guest over at the Writers' Rumpus blog, sharing the story of how The Writers' Loft got started.

In honor of tribes like the Loft, I turn to a TED talk about making change through building connections.

Seth Godin talks about how we change the world now through connecting with people who are true believers in whatever it is we are passionate about. I think it is an extremely hopeful, grass roots kind of movement, and one that we can all be a part of, no matter what our passion might be.

  1. Wow, great video. Create a movement... thinking about that now ...

    Did this inspire you to create the loft? Or did you find this after and help you develop the culture?

  2. Josh, hello! I love this idea of us all connecting through our passions--I heard this talk after starting the Loft, but thinks it expounds nicely on the idea of why it is so important to connect with other writers.
