Sohodojo's RIBS Joint - Really Important Books and Stuff
Resources for Portfolio Life and Business...
Charles Handy (3)
Charles Handy is second only to Daniel Quinn as an inspirational Big Thinker affecting the vision of Sohodojo. Handy's insightful books teach us about Shamrock organizations and the Portfolio Life of us fleas inhabiting a world too full of organizational elephants.
Daniel Quinn (4)
No single author is more deserving of an "Inspirational Foundations" subcategory to himself than Daniel Quinn. Quite simply the most profound and original thinker of our time... and any time for that matter. Quinn sees that Mother Culture has no clothes and lays bare the consequences of our listening Lemming-like to her Siren call.
The best book about that Internet that is not supposed to be about the Internet. A Sohodojo must-read. The Unanbomber was willing to kill to keep you from reading this book!

The Support Economy
The Support Economy is simply the most important business and social/economic book written in decades. Zuboff and Maxmin's description of the rise of distributed capitalism is 100% right on the money. Unfortunately, its illustrative scenario examples are frought with rampant Yuppie fantasies of Every Man and Woman a King and Queen that undermine its power. But read in concert with other books, it is a valuable blueprint for our collective and individual futures.
