The influential Washington Technology Report called him the most influential media authority since Marshall McLuhan.

Don has authored or co-authored 14 widely read books including the 1992 best-seller

Paradigm Shift. His 1995 hit The Digital Economy changed thinking around the world about the transformational nature of the Internet and two years later he defined the Net Generation and the “digital divide” in Growing Up Digital. His 2000 work, Digital Capital, introduced seminal ideas like “the business web” and was described by BusinessWeek as “pure enlightenment.” Wikinomics: How Mass Collaboration Changes Everything was the bestselling management book in 2007 and translated into over 25 languages. The Economist called his newest work Macrowikinomics: Rebooting Business and the World a “Schumpeter-ian story of creative destruction” and the Huffington Post said the book is “nothing less than a game plan to fix a broken world.” Over 30 years he has introduced many ground-breaking concepts that are part of contemporary understanding and language.
