Egoboo integration

Tracking where you’re mentioned is tougher now that conversation on the web takes place on Twitter, Facebook, FriendFeed, and numerous other flows. Friendfeed /jaycross. Egoboo is a colloquial expression for the pleasure received from public recognition of voluntary work.

Streams, not blogs?

Jay Cross

Services like FriendFeed , Tumbler , and Posterous are essentially personal aggregators. Everything shows up on Steve’s Friendfeed , including comments and discussion. To fork or not to fork? 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.

Keeping Up - April's Big Question

eLearning Cyclops

April's Big Question from Learning Circuits is "How to Keep up?" This is in reference the immense and rapidly expanding technology tools. It is tough to stay on top of all the emerging tools. However, being involved in an e-learning community is a big help. For me it is a blog community and following many experts on Twitter. Not only am I often made aware of new tools, but also get opinions, tips, and examples of their use.

Walkabout Reflections

Jay Cross

Looking back at 60 days of blog posts is easier with Friendfeed. Remember this one? I hoard words but often never go back to reflect on what’s there. Photo Review. I’ve posted more than 700 photographs to Flickr since February 1. Here are the 56 photos ` that meant most to me.

Activity Streams

Jay Cross

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.

Twittering birds and headless dogs

Learning with e's

It was brought to my attention by Michelle A Hoyle (London, England) that A J Cann (Leicester, England) is using a combination of Twitter and Friendfeed with his students with some success. An old friend of mine, Carol Daunt (Brisbane, Australia) has single handedly turned me on to Plurk. Plurk, despite its silly name, is a microblogging tool that is at once both jolly good fun and strangely addictive.

Informal Learning Flow

Jay Cross's Informal Learning

I follow people on blogs, Twitter and Friendfeed. Professional learning is increasingly driven by demand, not supply. You decide what you need or want to learn and you go get it when you feel like it. Since you chose your topic rather than being told, you’re more likely to retain information you find. To keep from drowning in the gusher of discoveries, news, and insight on the net, astute foragers use services to filter the noise and present headlines worthy of further investigation.

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. 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. The overall theme of my response was trust and communication.

Reflecting on the first half of 2009

Jay Cross

Friendfeed /jaycross. My new car is one year old! How did that happen? Time keeps on slippin’, slippin’ into the future. Midyear already! How did we get here so quickly? It’s making me dizzy. I’m going to reflect on what I’ve been up to in 2009 thus far. Caution: this is what Jon Stewart would call old news. Winter 2009. MacWorld : learning infrastructure and social network infrastructure are converging. Surreal.
