    [Blogging] An Ethics Primer
    The New Ethics of Journalism: About This Blog." Many readers will find this section unnecessary, but for many others the range and variety of ethical theories extant may be new to them. It is my objective here to show that a significant number of questions and assumptions in dialogue around ethics are open for discussion. Ethics is by no means a complete or closed discipline; it is a living study that has been shaped and formed by thinkers from the ancient world through to the modern era.

    My blog posts are pretty regular (my aim is 2/week), but tend to have ideas that are embryonic or a bit ‘evangelical’ First, I’ve written four books; you can check them out and get sample chapters at their respective sites: Engaging Learning: Designing e-Learning Simulation Games. These tend to be aggregated thoughts that are longer than a blog post, but not as through as a chapter.

    [Blogging] On energy gradients
    Either way the question got me thinking and with tax deadlines out of the way yesterday I knew I wanted to start blogging again. Now bear with me on this as I am thinking aloud …. I woke up this morning to a question from a good friend with whom I have had many discussions over the last few years. To quote, he asked about “the logic behind the complex domain (quadrant) being lower than the chaos domain (quadrant)”. The simple answer to this is that it chaos is not a stable state.

    [Blogging] Blog Post: Alternative facts are not really facts
    By David Gurteen I am sure most of you by now will have heard the phrase alternative facts. This is what Wikipedia says if you are not familiar with the term. Alternative facts is a phrase used by Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway during a Meet the Press interview, in which she defended White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer's false statements about the attendance at Donald Trump's inauguration as President of the United States.". You can see the interview here.

    [Blogging] Blog Post: Give people a say
    By David Gurteen I think the Knowledge Café is often at its best in organizations when it is used to convene conversations to give people “a say” in topics and issues that are relevant to them and where they can express their opinions freely. This helps them make better sense of the issues and allows them to appreciate that other people have different perspectives to them. This helps build community.

    The post Trump's conspirators appeared first on Joho the Blog For too long, a small group in our nation’s capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have bore the cost. Washington flourished, but the people did not share in its wealth. Politicians prospered but the jobs left and the factories closed. So said Pres. Trump in his inaugural address , identifying the perpetrators of the Bladerunner-esque hellscape he depicted. It’s not clear who he means.
