4.2 SDSU: Collective Children’s Book
I recently I wrote a book called, “Little boy, Mr. Chimes and the Bendy Path” with a freshman named Sarah D’Amico at San Diego State University. This is a story about the little boy that lives inside of all of us yearning to live our dreams and follow the rules. After researching the campus and what was going on for 5 months, I wrote the book in 3 hard charging days that surprisingly took a lot out of me.
What does this have to do with social media?
For one, when I asking myself how would Mark Twain us he social media I started coming up with ideas like this. I bet you are still not getting it. I posted the book on my blog for free and posted this letter.
Hello SDSU Community and the world,
This book was inspired by the students of San Diego State University to let the children of the world from 3 to 103 know what is happening on the campus of the Montezuma Mesa. We wanted to personally thank Sarah D’Amico for helping co-author and co- inspire this book to give a voice to the students as they find their place is this changing world. This book was intentionally created with no illustrations so that the SDSU community can continue and continue to bring this book to life in more and more ways. Our vision is individuals, classes, departments, groups, fraternities, sororities and all different campus organizations using this book to create unique versions. Just imagine the entire campus community to bring this story life with unique illustrations, music,
art, iPhone applications, T-shirts, ring tones and performances. This is all part of an experiment that anything and everything is possible.
