The end of control

"It is now becoming utterly impossible to control the people formerly known as consumers. Instead, they control the media purveyors — by virtue of millions of mouse-clicks and the power of their combined click-streams. ..." Many would agree with Gerd Leonhard's premise. Terrifying thought for communications and branding professionals! Perhaps his new blog-book The End of Control: How technology is Shifting Control Over Media to the People Formerly Known as Consumers will throw some light on what we need to do about it.
