In 2001, Seth Godin published his ebook, \" Unleashing the Ideavirus \", which has since been downloaded by more than 2 million people, making it the most popular ebook ever written. The ebook discusses how to create an idea that spreads like a virus, how to leverage a powerful \"sneezer\", and how \"hives\" work to spread powerful ideas. Godin's main point: Ideas that spread, win. The classic example he gives is that of sliced bread. Sliced bread was invented in 1913 by Otto Rohwedder, but the idea was a complete flop until 1930, when Wonder packaged and sold the idea to the masses.
