Blog Book Tour Recap Week Three: hectic

Kapp Notes

We did, however, have an innovative post Mark Copeman at Being Smarter who created a mash up of Skype and his video program for an interesting discussion about the book tour itself.

The fact that this is one of the general sessions at ASTD TechKnowledge is interesting way to start 2009. I put up a couple of screencasts that show how to use LinkedIn for Finding Expertise and Searching for Expertise - LinkedIn Answers. This lines up with what I predicted in 2008.
