100 Conversation Topics
DECEMBER 8, 2008
Almost every time I have a conversation, I learn something new. But I don't have nearly enough time to have conversations, learn and write blog posts. So now that some people called me influential , I'm hoping that I can leverage my influence to inspire people to have a conversation with me and help me with my lack of time. So, here are my suggested 100 conversation topics that I wish I had time to speak to you ( yes YOU ) about. I'm hoping you will just pretend we had the conversation and write a summary of the conversation we had. My top goals.
Is Social Learning Fun?
MARCH 26, 2009
Robert Kennedy recently posted 100 Conversations and Hot Wheels where he addressed one of my 100 Conversation Topics that you can find aggregated on eLearning Learning as 100 Conversations. Isn't it already a kind of fun – interaction and conversation? He chose to write about how he works differently from 10 years ago … one of my favorite topics. Some good stuff in his post, but something that caught my eye was: Have my work skills changed? Well, I use different tools now and I think my general approach to things has morphed slightly.
Personal Learning Books

Brett Miller has taken me up on my 100 Conversation Topics which you can see what's happening at eLearning Learning - 100 Conversations. His post were some book recommendations for learning professionals. I must say that his list of books was quite interesting and come from a bit outside where I normally think. I once took a personality profile and the feedback person walked into the room and started with, "So you like going into bookstores" - which was not one of the direct questions on the profile. And, yes, I do. Thanks Brett for the suggestions.

On ICT in Early Learning someone (not sure their name) has responded to my Conversation Topics post (see them via eLearning Learning - 100 Conversations ). This may be quite interesting as one of the first comments was: I have set up a draft post behind the scenes of the 25 of the 100 conversations that I feel inspired to participate in. One thing I'm finding in responding to these conversations is whether I'm writing for the one person who initiated the conversation or to my prototype audience member. I look forward to further conversation.

This is why I talk about the importance of new skills for Leveraging Networks , Network Feedback , F inding Expertise , Using Social Media to Find Answers to Questions , Learning through Conversation. I've been reading various mentions of the new report by Forrester , that provides the following information on the sources that people trust. Surely there's more trust than that.

Ingrid O'Sullivan has a new blog and is the first person to take me up on my post 100 Conversation Topics which asks people to start a conversation with me and get aggregated into 100 conversations. I'm hoping as I gain more experience, have more "conversations" and learn from the likes of Tony, this will no longer be my hardest ongoing task - but for now dear readers please read with patience. Take a look at what Janet Clarey had to say after her first 100 days - Debriefing myself.a Your goal should be to have interesting conversations.

Bill Sawyer posted in response to my Conversation Topics post. You can find posts aggregated via eLearning Learning - 100 Conversations. I've not met Bill before, and this was a great way to start. He is definitely challenged and thinking a lot about training standards. Bill has quite a few questions in his post: eLearning is suffering from the Beta/VHS or Blu-ray/HD-DVD challenge. In fact, it is probably even more systemic. For example, it is elearning? eLearning? e-Learning? or E-Learning? I'm not really going to address this much. Should we support Flash? Then yes.
