These are my live notes from DevLearn November 4, 2011 in Las Vegas. Facebook now stores 140 billion photographs. July 2010 – the US time spent online – when it changed to open architecture where everyone is a publisher – that’s where Facebook usage starting far outstripping all the other sites.

It’s not Facebook. devlearn curationCuration is a good news/bad news thing. The cloud – sounds so fluffy and nice. This is a big change.

DevLearn Reflections


Just back from DevLearn and still reeling under its effect, I thought it would be the perfect time to share my experience with everyone. Though team Raptivity has been a known face at DevLearn, it was my first visit, and my maiden chance to experience it live, and I must admit, I was bowled over. I was there with two other team members, for all three days of the conference.

Stoatly Different

No exceptions. I’m getting increasingly frustrated by the attitudes of a wide-range of people when it comes to accessing websites like Facebook at work. Forgive me for incessantly saying Facebook – interchange it for your favourite social network if it makes you feel better – but it is the most popular. Andrew McAfee , speaking at the DevLearn 09 conference yesterday*, commented that we need to stop jumping on the risks associated with Web 2.0. Access to Facebook might not make you happier, but blocking it will almost certainly make you less happy. This sucks.

That worked a lot for me.

trishuhl Shocked and sad about the news that @TerrenceWing passed away - met him IRL on #DevLearn #ASTD I immediately sent her a DM asking for clarification. I've been following the twitter stream and just checked out his Facebook page. Amidst the sadness of losing him, I'm discovering a new found hope in the new technologies that are so often blamed for ill will. I see the number of lives touched by one man in an endless stream of twitter commets and Facebook postings. I was up early this morning (4am MTN time). And to my shock and disbelief I saw a tweet from @lilybiri.

Google is failing us: how to manage the information overflow?

Challenge to Learn

Websites, blogs, Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, newspapers, TV, radio to name a view of the overflowing sources that we need to manage and process. Steve Rosenbaum pointed out in his key note address at DevLearn that search engines like Google become less reliable and that we have to find other ways to manage the information overflow. So I follow all kinds of other blogs with Google reader (via RSS feeds), follow people on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. We are all struggling with the ever-increasing amount of information that we need to manage. decided to test Google myself.

Trade Show Circuit 2013

eLearning 24-7

DevLearn Conference & Expo. The worst offender was the social learning – Facebook LMS guys. In just one month, the e-learning trade show season will be upon us.  While at one time there was little reason to be concerned, those days are way over. Too many e-learning shows. I’m not just talking about here in the states, but on earth (not sure about Mars, though). As a result, many of us (including myself) need to assess and weigh our options. Do we hit two sh0ws? Do we travel to Dubai or visit Denver? Vendors are assessing as well. ASTD TechKnowledge. Vendor Angle.

Fun is Serious in Social Business

The Learning Generalist

Think of the way you react to your network on Facebook. When I went to Ranthambore this year, I was pretty awestruck by the glory of the men's moustaches there. As some of you know, I was inspired enough to grow my own moustache. My colleague Nikhil's been growing one of his own -- we could potentially double up. Now wait a minute - was that related to work in anyway? Errrm. What's the ROI?

From the Archives: Do It Yourself FIRST

In the Middle of the Curve

During DevLearn 08 it dawned on me that many members of our profession still need to prove that they understand the tools we are asking them to use. struggle with that question with Wikis, Twitter, Second Life, Facebook and LinkedIn (for starters). This speaks to a rule I have for myself when teaching or leading - thanks to Rick's management lessons. Is this something I have done and / or are willing to do? People can read the inauthenticity if you are telling them to do something you are not willing to do yourself. If I haven't done it before, I NEED to be right there with them.
