A fresh, entertaining book about the power of creativity and how to harness it, from co-founder of Twitter Biz Stone
Biz Stone became an Internet entrepreneur in 1999. He went on to work for Google, helped to create both blogging and podcasting, and then co-invented Twitter. Before he was a tech star, Biz wrote books and articles about the social aspects of technology in the nascent days of the web. He regularly addresses large audiences as a visiting scholar at colleges or keynote speaker for companies and conferences. Most recently, Biz is founder and CEO of his newest venture, Jelly. He lives near San Francisco, California with his wife and son.

I advised him against it. If you're not inspired and informed by this book, then you haven't read it. * Stephen Colbert * Biz Stone's anything-but-ordinary journey both surprises and inspires. Things A Little Bird Told Me is a peek into a unique mind that, I'm happy to add, entertains us as well. * Ron Howard * I'm thrilled that readers of Things A Little Bird Told Me can now draw inspiration from his value and vision. A must-read for anyone who wants to tap their creative potential. * Charles Best, Founder and CEO of DonorsChoose.org * Most tales of start-up success revolve around a lone genius out-manoeuvring the competition. But the story Biz Stone tells us is a riveting -- and often hilarious -- break from that tradition: a story of collaboration, sharing, and the power of networks. * Steven Johnson, author of Where Good Ideas Come From *
