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.
MAY 22, 2015
One reason is that I’ve been traveling almost constantly, and not always in the best position to blog (or even tweet). I’ll get back to more regular blogging here, while still liveblogging, after I get back in the States from Australia, where I am now. Blogging LinksPerhaps you’ve noticed that I’ve been quiet here for a bit. Another is that I’ve been liveblogging instead.

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. (I’ve

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.

By David Gurteen It's a while since I last talked about what I call conversational conferences - February 2013 to be exact. I am now starting to pull some of that old material into my blook and updating it.

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.

By David Gurteen I am experimenting with a potential Virtual Knowledge Cafe platform - Zoom Meetings. The experiment is confined to my local time zone right now but if all goes well I will open it up globally. Download Zoom and connect with me if you wish to play with it.). If you don't want to read too much - just watch these two videos and you will see why I think it will make a viable platform for Virtual Knowledge Cafes. Ignore the content - just see the format :-).

At around the same time as this interest in Buddhism and meditation was beginning I was also getting into blogging. Although blogging had been going about a year when I started I was still part of a very small group of early bloggers working out what it was and what we could do with it. In order to blog you have to become more aware. You then publish these words on your blog which hopefully reaches into the minds of your readers in a very direct and immediate way.

Earlier on this month, my good friend, Euan Semple wrote a short blog post on the topic of how tough it is to put together that initial first blog entry, if you are new to blogging, and even more so if you are an executive.
NOVEMBER 13, 2013
My friend Dave Tebbutt is wondering whether to give up his blog or not. Many of us over the years go through periods of questioning why we blog and if it is worth it. For me the biggest reason to blog is personal. If I don’t blog I don’t think as much, or at least not with as much focus. I don’t think it even matters where you blog these days. This is because just linking to my blog posts seemed unreasonable.

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.

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!

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.

I have long thought that good blogging is somewhere between poetry and essays. The activity of blogging calls on the writer to develop a heightened awareness of their surroundings and to work out their reactions to those surroundings. This is why I still believe that blogging has enormous potential to help us sort our most significant challenges

There is still a huge amount of work to do before I make the content generally available but I am opening up certain posts as I go along for comment and feedback.

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. Journalism is a form of documentation, and what I provide the world through my photo blog is fodder for that. Hardly a week goes by that a shot of mine doesn’t find its way from Flickr or Wikimedia Commons into a newspaper, a magazine or a blog post somewhere. Here’s one that ran in the NYTimes Bits blog on the 19th.

<Note: I call this a ‘popcorn’ post> If you’re on the ole Twitter , or even better, if your organization has implemented a micro-blogging application of some sort, you get it. That is, you probably have a semi-coherent idea of what micro-blogging actually is.
