Reflecting on the State of Enterprise 2.0 as an Organizational Culture Change Agent

Dan Pontefract

I mean c’mon, there once was a 2010 Enterprise 2.0 But if we were to talk about the next generation of the enterprise — Enterprise 2.0 — how could we not discuss behaviour, culture, learning or leadership in concert with the premise of collaborative-based technologies? Culture.

Passion and Flow

John Hagel

Because the ethics of board sports are so rooted in pushing limits and breaking rules, theirs is a culture of one-upmanship, where athletes attempt to outdo one another and set the bar ever higher for others. The emergent star of the 2010 Olympics was surely snowboarder Shaun White for his daring move, the “Double McTwist 1260.” As I dive deeper into passion, I’m frequently asked: “isn’t this just another term for Mihaly Csíkszentmihályi’s concept of “flow?”

Text-to-Speech vs Human Narration for eLearning

Tony Karrer

I will caution you that some of the responses suggest that Voice-Over roughly equates to slower learning with no improved effect; and limits your cultural appeal. Some challenging questions are being raised in this month’s Big Question - Voice Over in eLearning. Some of the key questions: Given the range of solutions for voice-over from text-to-speech, home-grown human voice-over, professional voice-over: how do you decide what's right for your course?

The Collapse of Complex Business Models ? Clay Shirky

Clay Shirky

The answer he arrived at was that they hadn’t collapsed despite their cultural sophistication, they’d collapsed because of it. It would be easy to regard this as short-sighted on their part, but that ignores the realities of culture. For a century, ATT’s culture had prized—insisted on—quality of service; they ran their own power grid to keep the dial-tone humming during blackouts. « @ the intersection says: April 29, 2010 at 9:47 am.

Passion Versus Obsession

John Hagel

Objects of obsession are often quite narrow, for example using a specific photo editing tool, developing enhancements to a specific product or developing new art around a specific pop culture character or icon.    Subjects of passion, on the other hand, are broad, for example involving digital photography, innovating within a broader category of technology or experimenting with a certain genre of pop culture. When I was a little boy, I was obsessed with chemistry.

The Economic and Cultural Polarization of America

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

For most of our nation’s history, whatever the inequality in wealth between the richest and poorest citizens, we maintained a cultural equality known nowhere else in the world - for whites, anyway.” There was a common civic culture, - the American way of life , - “that swept an extremely large proportion of Americans of all classes into its embrace. You might say the country has bifurcated into different social tribes, with a tenuous common culture linking them.”

Open Education and Market Forces

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

That our role, as a wider society, ought not to be to shower free resources upon people, in the hope of somehow lifting them up and maybe enlightening them, and certainty of creating lifelong customers, but rather in the fostering of a social, legal and cultural climate where people are empowered and encouraged to create and share artifacts of their own learning. To do any less is to cheat them not only out of their own education but also of their own social values and cultural heritage.
