On Wednesday September 17th, the State Library of Victoria will be hosting 
an afternoon with influential UK ideas-generator Charles Leadbeater; his 
only public lecture during his visit to Melbourne.

Leadbeater’s presentation at the Library will focus on the themes of his 
new book, We Think: The Power of Mass Creativity. 

In We Think, Leadbeater argues that we now have the technology to create 
collaborative projects on a massive scale. Sighting success stories such
as Wikipedia the Human Genome Project and Open Source computing, the book 
suggests ways to harness the power of collective, collaborative thinking
to generate mass innovation.  http://www.cci.edu.au
