The Digitalization of the American Workforce

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

The Brookings report quantified the spread of digitalization by analyzing the changes in the digital content of 545 occupations between 2002 and 2016 based on O*NET , the most comprehensive data on US occupations sponsored by the US Department of Labor. In 2002, 58% of jobs required low digital skills, 40% required medium digital skills and just 5% required high digital skills. The mean low-skill digital score more than doubled, from 14 in 2002 to 36 in 2016. “By

Automation and the Changing Demand for Workforce Skills

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

To do so, the study analyzed how the total number of hours worked in 25 different skill areas has changed between 2002 and 2016 and estimated the expected change in hours worked by 2030. In aggregate, the total hours worked for all 25 skills went up by around 8% between 2002 and 2016, - from 266 billion hours to 287 billion, - and are expected to grow an additional 8% by 2030 to 310 billion hours.

Culture: the subject

Dave Snowden

I argued back then, in 2002, that managing in the informal or shadow spaces of the organisation was more important than the formal side. The Oxford English Dictionary defines culture as “The arts and other manifestations of human intellectual achievement regarded collectively” and “The ideas, customs, and social behaviour of a particular people or society”.

Journalists and social media

George Siemens

It was in an interview I did with Stephen Downes in 2002). Journalism serves as a test ground for education. What has happened in journalism will also happen in education: breakdown of a single controlled narrative, increased role of amateurs, challenges to the existing business model, etc. btw – I’ve referenced the link between journalism and news over the last 7 or 8 years. I decided to dig out where I first encountered this idea.

Dealing with a Highly Unpredictable Future

The high degree of uncertainty surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic is one of its most frustrating qualities. How long will the pandemic last? When will normal life return? When will a vaccine be available?

The Fabrication that is OER

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

From the Foundation's kick start in 2002 OER has not let up" "Also, in 2002, MIT boldly launched its Open Courseware (OCW) initiative, turning loose its entire faculty's instructional content to the world." "The The other critical lynchpin for OER, also in 2002, was the issuance of the first Creative Commons (CC) open licenses." "In In 2002 as well, UNESCO held the 1st Global OER Forum, from whence the acronym "OER" was formally adopted."

workplace learning — yesterday, today, tomorrow

Harold Jarche

As Verna Allee wrote in 2002, “Communities of practice emerge in the social space between project teams and knowledge networks” Communities LearningTen years ago — workplace learning in 10 years — I wrote that in 2019 much of the workforce will be distributed in time & space as well as in engagement. I also projected that work and learning will continue to blend while stand-up training will be challenged by the ever-present back channel.

The final post brought in the whole known-unknown-unknowable language which I started working with in the 1980s but abandoned for a period following February 2002 for obvious reasons!

Phon?sis in Cynefin

Dave Snowden

I took that paper and reworked it into the 2002 paper Complex Acts of Knowing , which is the first published manifestation in its modern form; by which I mean with curves and with all five domains. Somewhere between July 2000 and the end of 2001 (when the 2002 paper was commissioned) I started to draw it with five domains and I really, really wish I could remember exactly when.

Happy birthday Knowledge Café: It all began 16 years ago today on Sept 5th, 2002 at the Strand Palace Hotel in central London. By David Gurteen Here are some of my more popular recent tweets. Take a look, if you are not a Tweeter, you will get a good idea of how I use it by browsing the list of micro-posts. A big difference maker is when participants in a network (or an organization, for that matter) embrace new ways of seeing, thinking, and doing. link] #ConversationalLeadership.

Google’s whacking of GoogleWhack is whack

David Weinberger

Gary Stock invented it in 2002, and it took off rather rapidly. Googlewhacking is the harmless pastime of trying to find two word combinations that get a single return when searched for at Google (without quotes around them). Disclosure: I was an early promoter of it (also here and here and here , etc.). Now, nine years and millions of views later, Google has decided that Googlewhack threatens its brand.

What is happening to our intellectual world?

Harold Jarche

George Steiner notes in a 2002 lecture that all our electric devices are based on Victorian era Boolean logic. Literacy — the written word — empowers our “harsh desire to last” It enables our words to extend beyond our lifetimes. Western literacy is basically a tool to escape death. But the new electric media will likely inform and change literacy.

I Am A Corporate Floater

Dan Pontefract

When I left academia in 2002 I also left the trappings of an office. When I switched organizations in late 2008, I also gave up a singular desk space. I’m like PacMan careening through a corporate game board collecting points at the desks, tables and rooms I occupy. I am a floater. I’m on a quest for the corporate floater high score. There are no ghosts in this game. Wherever the wind takes me — be it the road, various offices, home or coffee shops — I am working.

Whose Connectivism?

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

I would like to make just one point, that it is not "Siemen's 'Connectivism,'" that he gave a name to a theory and approach a number of us had been working on for some time. I don't mind saying I borrow the name from him, but I would certainly say this is as much my theory (and that of numerous other people) as it is his.

Ten years after

Jay Cross

In 2002, ASTD and I introduced a blog, Learning Circuits Blog, about eLearning and networking. Excited about the new communication tool, we actually started our first blog somewhat ambitiously in 2002 as an experiment lead by informal learning guru Jay Cross and Learning Circuits editor Ryann Ellis. Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it, so I’ll reflect on the old days a dozen years ago when we were sorting out the ground rules for eLearning.

Reflections on the early days of social networking as LinkedIn reaches 100 million users

Trends in the Living Networks

When I was writing Living Networks in 2002 there were no true social networking applications in existence. I still remember my tremendous disappointment when I found out just after New Years Day 2002 that had fallen by the wayside. From there, Friendster was founded in 2002, LinkedIn and MySpace in 2003, and Facebook in 2004. Last week LinkedIn reached a significant milestone: 100 million users.

The Knowledge and Learning Transfer Problem

Charles Jennings

During a meeting at Cambridge University around 30 years ago I was thoroughly chastised by a Cambridge academic. I’d used the phrase ‘learning delivery’ when describing computer-supported collaborative learning ( CSCL ) approaches. CSCL was one of the hot pedagogical approaches of the day – when network-based learning was in its relative infancy. Charles, my dear fellow”, said the Cambridge man, “we may deliver milk, but learning is something that is acquired, never delivered”.

Crowd-fixing my book

David Weinberger

In something like 2002, I wrote and posted a kid’s version of my book, Small Pieces Loosely Joined , under a non-commercial Creative Commons license. Now Peter Ford has taken it upon himself to create a site with a copy of it with a facility that lets anyone comment on any paragraph. He’s hoping to get the must off of it, stem the link rot, etc. I totally love this.


As in days of yore

Doc Searls

Way back in (it says 1969, but it was actually) 2002, I had a ball discovering many free wi-fi hot spots in London, got to make many new friends, and enjoy, for a brief shining year or two, the grace of public wi-fi by countless distributed private means. I blog by grace of something I hardly expected to find: a free open wi-fi hot spot in London.

Taking the fun out of Binder Women

David Weinberger

in 2002 — prior to the election, not even knowing yet whether it would be a Republican or Democratic administration — a bipartisan group of women in Massachusetts formed MassGAP to address the problem of few women in senior leadership positions in state government. I’m of course loving the Binder Women meme. Hilarious. But let me for the moment take all the fun out of it: 1. The first thing President Obama did upon taking office was sign the Lilly Ledbetter Act.

reflecting on the future of knowledge

Harold Jarche

I started my independent consulting practice in 2003 and one of the first books I purchased was — The Future of Knowledge: Increasing Prosperity through Value Networks by Verna Allee (2002) Butterworth-Heinemann (ISBN: 0750675918). The topic of value network analysis and the leading role that Verna Allee played came up in some recent discussions in one of my online communities of practice. So I decided to re-read the book that planted so many ideas in my mind.

Storytelling is Engagement

Dan Pontefract

Since 2002, GlobalGiving has raised $67,930,184 from 271,216 donors who have supported 5,829 projects. I’m not a particularly religious man, however Time Magazine, Life, Fortune and Sports Illustrated founder Henry Luce once said, “We didn’t invent the idea of delivering news through stories about people. The Bible invented it.” ” And frankly, he has a point.

Stories from the world's children

Dave Gray

During the United Nations Special Session on Children in May 2002, children discussed eight key issues and wrote a statement reflecting their views, 'A World Fit for Us'. Five years later, XPLANE worked with Unicef to develop a booklet to report back to children what progress has been made in their name; it also presents stories and concerns of children around the world. In the video above, the XPLANE team offers a peek behind the scenes as they reflect on the project.

2002), to keep track of contacts (Whittaker, Jones & Terveen, 2002), or to make choices about which communities to join and which to ignore. PKM is much more than processing information. It’s about ideas, conversations and especially relationships. Most of all, PKM is a framework to actually do knowledge work. It is a framework that helps move from an awareness of knowledge to activation of its use in the context of getting work done.

Losing Aaron Swartz

Doc Searls

Here he is with Dave Winer , I believe at an O’Reilly conference in San Jose: It’s dated May 2002, when Aaron was fifteen. Aaron Swartz died yesterday, a suicide at 26. Though we weren’t close buddies, I always felt a kinship with Aaron, in part because we were living demographic bookends. At many of the events we both attended, at least early on, he was the youngest person there, and I was the oldest.

I knew I started blogging around this time of year in 2001 but thanks to a server crash in December 2001 I had no record of my first blog post. I tried The Wayback Machine but couldn't remember the original url.

Cities grow at suburbs' expense

Nine Shift

So the trend (cities grow, suburbs decline) started around 2002. "Cities grow at suburbs' expense." That's the headline, straight out of the Wall Street Journal (July 1, 2009). We didn't make it up. In truth, the suburbs are still growing faster than cities, but the rate is slowing while the rate of city growth is growing. If the trend holds, cities will be growing faster than suburbs. Cities grew 0.97% this past year, up from 0.90% two years ago and up big time from around 0.5%
