What blogging was

David Weinberger

At a recent Fellows Hour at the Berkman Center the topic was something like “Whatever happened to blogging?,” ” with the aim of thinking about how Berkman can take better advantage of blogging as a platform for public discussion. They asked me to begin with some reflections on what blogging once was, because I am old. I understand that I’m reporting on how blogging looked to someone in a highly privileged position.

The Evolution of My Complex Relationship with Blogging

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

From time to time, I like to reflect on my feelings about blogging, and then write about them in an entry in my blog. I have not done so in a while, and it has now been just about six years since I started this blog, so I thought that it would be a good time to return to the subject. I started blogging at the urging of colleagues at IBM. For several years my friend and colleague John Patrick had been urging me to start a blog. I write this blog.

Steven Berlin Johnson

Think of information as the energy of the Webs ecosystem. A few stragglers are lucky enough to stumble across them, and thus some of that information might get reused if one then decides to e-mail the URL to a friend or to quote from it on another page. But most of the information goes to waste. model, we have thousands of services scrutinizing each new piece of information online, grabbing interesting bits, remixing them in new ways, and passing them along to other services.

Representing Events, Representing Knowledge

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Two comments to blogs, that at first glance appear to address very different topics, but are in fact saying exactly the same thing. What is the purpose of knowledge, of information, if it belongs nowhere, if it is not part of a coherent understanding of the world. Some examples of associated resources include: - agenda - PowerPoint - MP3 recording - blog post summary It should be noted that such associated resources will often be generated independently of the event.

Education Queensland's Learning Place newlsetter has vanished, the articles were taken down, and all you get now are seminar adevrtisements, awards and similar such stuff - - The Flexible Learning Leaders seem to be gone - they were a constant source of information, since they all created blogs or some such thing and kept me informed. The Australian blogging community has been relatively quiet - some have been fired or close to fired for talking about open source.


Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

At the Northern Voice blogging conference Globe and Mail columnist Norman Spector declared that Canada's blogging community is underdeveloped. As Peter Tupper summarizes, Canadian bloggers have not exercised the political muscle demonstrated by their American counterparts, and Iran's community of 70,000 or more blogs makes ours seem small. Leaving aside the fact that Iran's population is twice that of Canada, it seems to me that Canada has a substantial blogging population.

Decomposting Socialism

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

An elite that doesn't like to mucky-muck in trench politics, doesn't like to get in there and challenge right wing blogs, doesn't like to go to churches and challege the Pastor's call for hate politics, doesn't like to mess around with letters to the editor, a left-wing press, policy think-tanks, white papers and submissions, policy appeals and other stall tactics, and more. How many times do we have to hear these tired old stereotypes? We've seen socialism fail all around the globe.
