Meta-Learning, 2001

Jay Cross

Everyone has the capacity to learn but most people can do a much better job of it. Learning is a skill one can improve. Learning how to learn is a key to its mastery. Learning is the primary determinant of personal and professional success in our ever-changing knowledge age. People and organizations that strive to succeed had better get good at it. Our goal is to help them. Meta-Learning

The Invention We Had Hoped for in 2001

Nine Shift

Remember in 2001, the Internet/World Wide Web had just blown us away, the new century had just begun, and Dean Kamen said he would announce an invention of enormous impact. . Everyone speculated and speculated about the new Kamen invention, and everyone widely expected and hoped it would be a solar battery, giving power to villagers in Africa.

Radio and the Web, 2001

Since my old blog (still running, amazingly, on an old server somewhere within Verisign) will some day be Snow on the Water , and conversation about radio has commenced below that post, I decided to re-post March 21, 2001. Here goes… Blast from the past. Tune in here right now to catch Larry Lujack on KNEW, the Top forty station in Spokane, Washington, in the summer of 1963. Lujack later became a legend on Chicago radio. Such memories.

A September 12 poem

David Weinberger

My friend Evelyn Walsh reminded me of a poem I wrote on September 12, 2001. 12, 2001. I had forgotten it entirely: They dug a hole in the ordinary yesterday, And already the waves are smoothing its edges. The earth’s weight. that pulls the tides. draws the bodies that fall. and holds fast the feet. that tomorrow will resume. wearing furrows into its brow. Yeah, it’s a little overwrought, but considering what I was feeling, it was underwrought.

Advanced Manufacturing Goes Urban, Not Rural

Nine Shift

Since 2001, 60% of all manufacturing GDP growth has occurred in just 10 cities, the smallest of which is about 2.2 One of the reasons I think our community college friends are big on advanced manufacturing is that they think small cities and even rural areas are, or could, benefit. Not so. 1.Advanced manufacturing growth in big cities. Nearly seven times the manufacturing GDP growth in urban American than rural America since 2000.

The Great Decoupling of the US Economy

Andy McAfee

By the time of the 2001 recession, median income was lagging behind pretty badly. If we’re going to stick with Gallic labeling, the years between 1982 and 2001 were the vingt troublantes: By the end of 2011, things had become much worse in two ways. Between 1981 and 2001 the economy generated plenty of low-paying jobs.

Bush (2001). Binary thinking is an easy sell. It appeals to our emotions which we developed as children. Binary thinking blinds us. It’s not black and white, or right and wrong, or even Left and Right. Human society is many shades along various spectra. But often politicians and others tell us it’s a simple, binary choice — ”You’re either with us, or with the terrorists.’ ’ ‘ — President George W.

The Myth of the Myth of Technological Unemployment

Andy McAfee

Since the end of the 2001 recession real GDP has increased by just about 20%. Over at Slate, Matt Yglesias has a post titled ‘ The Myth of Technological Unemployment ‘ accompanied by a graph showing that hours worked in the US have been rising and falling in lockstep with output. He writes. Machines are replacing workers, in other words, but they’ve been doing so since the cotton gin and the spinning jenny. Which is absolutely true and completely uncontroversial.

Remembering Freddy Herrick

Doc Searls

I met Freddy in 2001, when I first arrived in Santa Barbara, and he was installing something at the house we had just bought. The picture of Freddy Herrick I carry everywhere is in my wallet, on the back of my membership card for a retail store. It got there after I loaned my extra card to Freddy so he could use it every once in awhile. As Freddy explained it, one day, while checking out at the store, he was notified at the cash register that the card had expired.

After 2001, though, it wasn’t even generating enough of these, and employment growth started to lag badly behind GDP and productivity growth.”.

My Scariest Graph
