Tony Karrer

In December 2006, I posted my challenges and predictions for 2007. Biggest challenges for 2007? I could answer this as the biggest challenges for Learning Professionals generally, and maybe I'll come back and do that, but for now, let me just write what I see as some of my bigger challenges in 2007. I found several very high quality developers at several levels in 2007. This continues to be a challenge, but I'm way ahead of where I was starting 2007.

In it, he talks about various tools that are coming forward as a means to be able to pull applications together using mash-ups. I saw IBM's tool when I was moderating a Web 2.0 event in Los Angeles.

Buzz words for 2007

Learning with e's

Running under the title of Schott's Alamanac , the Times newspaper today carries an article about all of the new buzz words that have supposedly been introduced in 2007 and suggests that these are the words that will define the year. But some of them go back a few years, so although they may now define 2007, some may actually also define the first few years of this century, I think.
