Janet Clarey

It rolls up into one of its own pockets and is about the size of a pack of cards. Open it, stuff your jacket, purse/wallet, purchases, water, and explore handsfree. You’ll feel like a magician when pulling this out in public and packing it up. In 2015, I traveled roughly ten weeks for work and went on some solo backpacking camping trips for pleasure and sanity.

Social Learning

Clark Quinn

A long time ago I posted about Authoring in eLearning 2.0 / Add-ins & Mash-ups where I suggested that there would be easy ways to add social dimensions to our courses.

The reason is that The Business Web will be best known for its ability to easily create composite applications, or what is now popularly known as "mash-ups.” € Made popular on consumer sites such as [link] , a mash-up driven by Google maps and craigslist.org , or www.bikramfinder.com , a mash-up driven by salesforce.com and Google maps, the point is simple: the future of business applications is multiple, heterogeneous applications talking to each other and sharing data.

Cammy Bean did a fantastic job of taking notes during the keynote, so I’ll defer to her on this.
