Things You Really Need to Learn

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Write down or blog your predictions. Every day, subject at least one piece of information (a newspaper column, a blog post, a classroom lecture) to thorough scrutiny. This takes practice (try writing it down, or blogging it, every time you see a problem or need). If no newspaper exists, create one, or start up a news blog. Embed this word or concept into your existing knowledge by using it in some way - write a blog post containing it, or draw a picture explaining it.

50,000 Photos as a Blog

Doc Searls

For a blog that’s not bad — and I’m beginning to think that, in a way, a blog is what Flickr is for me. But it’s where I’ve been posting photos since 2006, and I’m reasonably confident (though I’ve had my doubts ) that it will stay in business. Journalism is a form of documentation, and what I provide the world through my photo blog is fodder for that. Here’s one that ran in the NYTimes Bits blog on the 19th.

Blog Evangelism

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

That said, there is a distinction between criticizing the method - the persistent preaching that grates on everyone's ears - and the message , in this case, that blogs are good and should be used to support teaching. The blog is for me only the most recent incarnation of what may in some senses be styled as 'user-generated media' and in other senses as 'micromedia' - and let's not forget that John Hiler was writing Microcontent News long before blogging per se was a gleam in anyone's eye.

You probably want to start by following some education technology blogs, both to get a feel for reading blogs and to inform yourself about some of the different options out there. At a certain point, you should begin commenting on blog posts and to start your own blog, to become more used to working with these tools in a practical way for yourself (as opposed to looking at them from the point of view of trying them in class).

Boxee : Internet TV :: Flickr : Digital Photos (circa 2006)

Adaptive Path

Folks wanted to do all kinds of things with their photos — email them, print them, post them to their blog or other personal site. I’m neck-deep on a project looking at the future of media. Of the many threads to pursue is just what is going on with television — TV on your PC, web on your TV, television content across three (or is it now four?) screens, etc. Frankly, the landscape is a bit of a mess. It’s reminiscent of the world of digital photography circa 2004.
