Why We Need the New News Environment to be Chaotic ? Clay Shirky

Clay Shirky

Pew recently reported that advertising revenue rebounded in 2010 for all forms of media, except newspapers. The intuition common to such proposals is that advertising revenues can no longer be relied on to fund serious reporting. When a paper fires reporters or closes outright, it further weakens that fabric. * * *. But even in their worst days, newspapers supported the minority of journalists reporting actual news, for the minority of citizens who cared. Clay Shirky.

Steve Denning

      Organize work in self-organizing teams : The default model of doing work shifts from individuals reporting to bosses, to organizing work in networks of self-organizing teams who regard their clients as “the boss”, not the manager.

Five Myths of Social Learning


McKinsey’s data supports this assertion: companies that reported the highest level of satisfaction with their social media deployments, more than half of all employees are using them. So while implementing social media tools provided by an LCMS or LMS vendor may ensure departmental adoption, experience and today’s market show us that enterprise adoption of these tools is not a likely reality.

Learning With and From Others: Restructuring Budgets for Social Learning

Dan Pontefract

In a 2009 IDC report, training budgets decreased on average by 19.5 ASTD reports staffing in learning-related roles dropped 8 percent in 2009. Blogs, wikis, microblogging, YouTube-like video sharing, tagging, ranking, virtual worlds, discussion forums, and generally any other form of user-generated content (for learning, communication, and marketing) are both practical and engaging ways to complement the learning strategy of any organization.

The Alternative To Top-Down Is Outside-In

Learning Analytics: Big Data Applied to Training, Teaching, and Learning

Beth Kanter

Learning Analytics comes from a report about the impact of emerging technologies for practitioners in a field. That sounds like the title of a report that NTEN might produce that surveys the technology landscape and nonprofit usage and provides an overview of what technologies nonprofits should be looking at in the next 1-5 years.

Increasing “Jointness” and Reducing Duplication in DoD Intelligence

Martijn Linssen

While modest gains have been made in breaking down “stovepipes,” the initial energy of these “collaborative” efforts has waned and increased spending has largely cemented bad habits: siloed analytic reporting that fuels massive duplication of effort.

The business of information

Harold Jarche

The internet era has allowed almost anybody to self-publish and we’re doing it in droves, on blogs, wikis, YouTube, Flickr, and Twitter. I would surmise that ten years ago it was easier to sell a research report than it is now. That means a customized research report for me that’s different than one for somebody else. This has shifted our relationship with information because we can find most information we need for free.

Troubling Trends in Organizational Networks

Most of the organizations that responded are sailing stormy seas without a rudder: • Less than half reported that their professionals and/or teams form communities of practice. • Nearly half reported they do not take time to reflect on what they might learn from a major success or failure. Most reported that it’s difficult to set up an in-house blog or wiki. • All of these — and perhaps other factors — could explain the lack of adoption.
