A programmer would submit a program on punch cards and wait hours for it to compile. Instead of coding, programmers built apps by mashing up shared packages of code. If a mashup produced a Frankenmonster, you threw it away and tried something else. Programming became communal, sharing replaced building from scratch, and programmers migrated to co-working spaces.

Tin Can API – What you need to know

And it’s a good program. One was casually mashing up a couple of essentially incommensurate ideas. I went to hear a talk the other day. It was about competency-based education (CBE) for organizations. Ostensibly. And, while I’m now affiliated with IBSTPI , it’s not like I’m a competency expert.

The case for PKM

Clark Quinn

We’re often no so meta-reflective, yet that ends up being a critical component to improving. There are lots of people who talk about bits and pieces, but what Harold’s done is synthesize them into a coherent whole (not a ‘mashup’). The acquaintance was right that just university uptake wasn’t a solid basis (I found a renowned MBA program recently that was still touting MBTI!).
