Tales Of Revolution And A Sense Of Community

By Ben Nadel on

Today, I am shocked, elated, and deeply touched to find out that I have been selected to appear in Seth Godin's latest book, "Tales of the Revolution: True Stories of People who are Poking the Box and Making a Difference." This wonderful news is entirely due to the awesome Paul Carney - business entrepreneur and fellow ColdFusion developer. A few weeks ago, Paul submitted the story, "A Community Builder Who Brought Us Together With A Picture," to The Domino Project - a Seth Godin initiative. Of the over 200 stories submitted, Paul's was one of a handful selected for publication.


Tales of the Revolution: True Stories of People who are Poking the Box and Making a Difference from Seth Godin.  

Right now, I have so many wonderful thoughts running through my head and I don't know quite how to put them into words. I do what I do because I absolutely love what I do. Part of that passion is, in no doubt, fueled by the wonderful people around me and the strong sense of community that we have in the ColdFusion world. I spend more time talking to you guys over blog, email, Twitter, and IM than I do talking to anyone else; and, I couldn't be happier about that. Our community is like a family and I, for one, am thrilled to be part of it.

To read more about this, including the story that Paul wrote, check out Paul Carney's blog.
