Linchpins are everywhere (raise-the-flag)... even in Berlin!

I badly adore Seth Godin and his style. I adore his capacity to write simple and clear but at the same time inspiring, evocative and very original books. I adore his blog posts. I adore the 'Purple Cow' philosophy and this time not because of Purple!

Reading his 'Purple Cow: Transform Your Business by Being Remarkable' simply changed my life and I'm always happy to read a new book written by Godin. In Godin's words, I'm a 'true fan'.

Today Seth Godin launched via his blog an one-time worldwide meetup inviting people all around the world to attend basically everywhere the Linchpins are everywhere (raise the flag) meetup and now there are already 475 Meetups scheduled on June, 14th 2010.
Where? In America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Oceania...

Linchpin: Are You Indispensable? (Hardcover)
by Seth Godin
Portfolio Hardcover, 2010
256 pp., ISBN 978-1591843160

'Linchpin' is the new Seth Godin's book, of course. And this 'global meetup' is part of a huge Internet marketing campaign. But, for one time, I'll be happy to joing it.
I'll be happy to meet more Godin's enthusiasts and more people who, like me, really believe that they can make a difference. That they can change the world and the rules.
I'll be attending the local appointment in Berlin, at 8.00 pm. And you?

Are you an elite?
Hardly worth the effort

Update: After just a hour since I've started writing this post, now the meetups are 486.
