Ciao, Flip

Jay Cross

In 2009, Cisco bought Pure Digital Technologies, the guys who made Flip. Four years ago, friends and colleagues marveled when I’d pull out my Flip video cam and shoot passable video with a unit not much larger than a pack of king-sized cigarettes. This was a breakthrough technology. Flip should have given me a commission. My demos probably sold hundreds of units. Kaput. tried Flip #2.

It’s making me dizzy. I’m going to reflect on what I’ve been up to in 2009 thus far. Winter 2009. Spring 2009. Gave opening keynote at IADIS eLearning 2009 on Rethinking Instructional Design in Carvoeiro, Algarve, Portugal. My new car is one year old! How did that happen? Time keeps on slippin’, slippin’ into the future. Midyear already! How did we get here so quickly? Caution: this is what Jon Stewart would call old news.

LearnTrends 2009: Balance, web 2.0, Internet Time Alliance, DAU

Jay Cross

George Siemens began the day by challenging us to see the world as a set of trade-offs. What’s the optimal balance point? Asking people to jot ideas on the white board, the line that divides presenter from audience began to blur. We’re all audience; we all presenters; it shifts back and forth. Few things are black or white; most are shades of gray. As George said, it’s nutty for only one person to do the talking among a group of 125 people. Group scribbling on the white board proved a catalyst to discussion. As with all of our presentations this week, you had to be there.
