blogging break

Harold Jarche

No, I have not stopped blogging, though my lack of recent posts may have given that impression. Following this break and with my upcoming travel I am sure I will have many new ideas to discuss here on this blog.

Blog Post: Is conversation action?

David Gurteen

By David Gurteen I am often asked how to turn conversation into action. It's a crazy question as conversation is action. Let me justify that. It is evident that conversation does not change the physical world. Conversation, however, changes the wiring of our brains. It transforms our minds. It changes what we think about, and it shapes how we think. Conversation creates the conditions, in which actions and changes we would like to see in the world become possible.

Blogging the way it ought to be

Doc Searls

Since the form of a WordPress blog (which this is) favors writing long pieces over short ones, that’s mostly what I’ve written here, since I started in August 2007. blog is writing pieces of any length, and posting them easily from a WYSIWYG editor, I’ve been blogging there instead of here. The Best Way to Blog. It’s even easier than it was on my original blog , where I posted from 1999 to 2007. BloggingFunction follows form.

Blog Post: Future Cyberwars

David Gurteen

By David Gurteen This last week or so I have read two disturbing articles. Obama's secret struggle to punish Russia for Putin's election assault. How An Entire Nation Became Russia's Test Lab For Cyberwar. What concerns me is not the politics, but the increasing ability for anyone to conduct cyberwarfare. It could be a nation-state, a terrorist organization, or a 13 year old from their bedroom.

Quiet blog

David Weinberger

This has been one of the longest stretches of non-blogging for me since I stopped blogging every freaking day in around 2010. In part it’s because I’ve been traveling — to Mexico City for a library conference I blogged about, to Penn State for a talk at the new and really interesting Center for Humanities and Information , to Atlanta to talk at a Deloitte internal Knowledge Management get-together.

Blog Post: We live in a hyperconnected, socio-technical world

David Gurteen

By David Gurteen As I write my blook on Conversational Leadership , I find myself capturing fragments of ideas that I know will get refined and fit in somewhere in due course. Here is one such fragment: We are not separate from the world. We are integrally connected. We are each a node of one huge global network. It is as if we are all attached by a large number of elastic bands to a multitude of other nodes: people, things, places, and history.

Blog Post: The Scientific Method for Kids

David Gurteen

By David Gurteen There are many subjects that everyone should be taught in school but I think one of the most important things that children need to learn is how to make sense of the world and thus they need to learn about the scientific method. They need never be scientists if that is not their calling but they simply need to understand how science works. Science is not a collection of facts; it is a way of viewing and studying the world.

I Will Dispense This Advice on Blogging

Luis Suarez

The thing is vast majority of that advice about blogs keeps missing the whole point on what blogging is all about right from the start. So I thought for today I’ll take the liberty of dispensing this piece of advice on blogging itself: Ignore me, for your own good! Blog now!

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. My blog was me.

Blog Post: Churchill on Democracy

David Gurteen

By David Gurteen I came across two interesting but connected quotes from Winston Churchill recently (or at least I thought I had). Both very relevant in current times. The best argument against Democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter. Credit: Winston Churchill. Many forms of Government have been tried, and will be tried in this world of sin and woe. No one pretends that democracy is perfect or all-wise.
