APRIL 4, 2011 Preparing For Serendipity - A Crucial Knoweldge Work Skill
Before I begin today's blogpost, I have to mention the biggest event in Indian cricketing history over the last three decades or so. India won the 2011 Cricket World Cup on Saturday and what a win it was! The eleven played like true champions against a tough opposition and at the end of it came out on top.

APRIL 4, 2011 Twitter: Le triple filtre
I've been discussing the merits of Twitter as a professional social network recently in conversation with colleagues. One of the regular objections to using Twitter professionally is that there is too great a noise-to-signal ratio. Professionals don't have a lot of spare time, and want to maximise the time they do have. don't blame them. Firstly, see Twitter as a fast moving stream.

- Social learning is what managers do already
Tweet Here are some more questions from our Working Smarter conversation on 30 March 2011, followed by my comments. Feel free to weigh in. Q1: Our Legal department discourages social learning because the communication cannot be reviewed by them before being presented. How has this been addressed by others? Q2: What social media/social learning methods are effective in regulation heavy business where a single mistake can cause business-wide repercussions. I am actually afraid of peer-to-peer education because often even the most respected peers just don’t get it right. InternetTime MORE >>
ELEARNING 24-7 Social Learning – What’s the Point? Time to turn the tables on the naysayers
| MONDAY, APRIL 4, 2011
What’s the point? That is what one senior exec said to me, the other day when it came to social learning. shot off the usual reasons, the benefits, the gains and then found myself expanding into the next possibilities of where a system and content authoring tool had to go. It didn’t seem that far of a stretch, actually. Not at all. For end users, they have to see value that is the point. For vendors, they could make it happen and generate revenue.

Today was the first day of SNW in Santa Clara. The Dell team was there, working in the hands-on labs area (more on that tomorrow!) and giving presentations. Will Urban had a session on VDI (virtual desktop infrastructure) where he covered some of the basic considerations for moving from a test bed of 50 users to a more realistic user base of 1000 (and more).

You know, the guy who co-founded Apple. MORE >>

| MONDAY, APRIL 4, 2011
I am pleased to share that I have an article in today’s Learning Solutions Magazine. It’s called Thinking Outside the Toolbox , and it’s been simmering for a couple of years as I’ve watched my own thought processes and had conversations with many others in our industry about our tools and how they relate to what we design and create. This line of thinking was also the basis for the Morning Buzz session I facilitated at the Learning Solutions conference. encourage you to add your thoughts. Enjoy! Share/Save.
