Pharrell Williams Creating the Word's First 'Social Book'
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 04.25.2014
The book will be completed by fans around the world...
Pharrell Williams has already conquered the music charts as both a producer and now a performer; now he's looking to conquer the book charts as well. But he needs your help to do it. Pharrell has launched a new website for his book Inspiration, which he is crowdsourcing to make the world's first "social book."
The site has a Flash animation which reads, "All the words from Pharell Williams' book have been erased. Join a worldwide community by rewriting them in real time. Some words will be easy to guess, others hard, but many will have hints to help you. Or not. Be the first person to guess any word, and get credited in Pharrell Williams' book."
The website is set up to allow speakers of English, French, German, Spanish and Italian. It will be released at an unnamed date after the book is completed and revenues "will be used in learning programs for underprivileged kids, to hopefully help rewrite many of their lives."
