Notes from 2005

Harold Jarche

This is a continuation of my notes from 2004 … I see that 2005 was the year I started digging deeper into PKM/Networked Learning.

If there were changes in 2005, they mostly had to do with my public life: I spent the spring and early summer doing 24/7 media for Everything Bad , and then most of the fall running around like a madman doing speeches. More importantly, happy (belated) winter solstice! It can only get sunnier from here on out.

John Hagel

Tom in his best-selling new book says “The World Is Flat” and Richard in a new article in the October 2005 issue of Atlantic Monthly asserts “The World Is Spiky" Richard’s article is a great read (supported by highly visual maps) and I highly recommend it.
