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
