Streams, not blogs?

Jay Cross

Blogging has been an important part of my life for ten years but now I’m wondering if the party isn’t moving on. Like classrooms in training, blogs will always be around. But also like classrooms, blogs are ceasing to be the primary source of value. My blogs show but one of many perspectives of Jay.

For me it is a blog community and following many experts on Twitter. Many of the blogs I follow are part of the eLearningLearning community. When it comes to free cloud apps, I also share them on my blog's Free Cloud Apps page. It is tough to stay on top of all the great stuff being offered out there, but the blogs and social media certainly help. Cloud Blogging Social Media Twitter Google e-Learning Cloud Computing

Walkabout Reflections

Jay Cross

I think of my rambunctious blog as one never-ending roll. Looking back at 60 days of blog posts is easier with Friendfeed. It’s also experimental blog posts, interviews, and thoughtful emails. Remember this one?

Activity Streams

For example, my FriendFeed pages show activity from this blog, the Internet Time Blog, my Flickr account, bookmarks I put on Delicious, and my entries from Twitter. An activity stream is a mash-up of an individual’s or organization’s feeds.

Now I can’t Tweet, update my Facebook status, blog, bookmark, etc. because my every click will show up on FriendFeed and I’m supposed to be in some fictitious 2:00 meeting. Or are you going to make it a blog post? Can’t hide. Other person: “Want to talk at 2:00? <pause> <pause> Me: “No, I’ve got a meeting at 2:00.&# {note: there is no meeting}. Other person: “OK, how about the same time tomorrow?&#.

Teaching the Social Web

eLearning Development

I’ve seen discussions and blog posts about appropriate use of social tools like Facebook , Twitter , LinkedIn and FriendFeed in the workplace. When do we start demanding that workers also demonstrate effective use of Twitter or LinkedIn or Ning or blogging? Yesterday my wife got a message on Facebook from a friend asking for advice on how to handle a young teenage girl’s use of MySpace. I instantly went into parent mode and told her how we deal with our teenager.

Re-orientation

Jay Cross

It pleases me to think of all of the passing information, entertainment, notifications, tweets, blogs, magazines, newspapers, and so on as a never-ending stream. Links take me to my blogs, tools, events, clocks, clubs, and communities. My home page links to my public-facing material: blogs, videos, Flickr, SlideShare, popular articles, several communities, free chapters from Informal Learning, and so on. Feeling lost?
