There aren't a lot of KM conferences left but the long established events have kept going and continue to attract good speakers and audiences.

no time, no learning

Those nice people at ARK want to make you an offer

Dave Snowden

Either way, the nice people at ARK have offered a 25% discount to anyone who reads this blog, which I think is a nice complement, they obviously want discriminating and intelligent people to have preference. I also have a few 50% discount seats which I will happily allocate to deserving causes (NGOs without budgets etc.) For the latter email me; for the 25% go the ark web site to book but say you are a reader of Dave Snowden's blog.

On Research and Academic Diversity

George Siemens

This community, certainly blogs and with folks like Bonnie Stewart, Jim Groom, D’Arcy Norman, Alan Levine, Stephen Downes, Kate Bowles, and many others, is the most vibrant knowledge space in educational technology. Before blogs were called web 2.0, This isn’t to discount social networked organization or alt-ac. In my previous post, I mentioned the release of our report Preparing for the Digital University.

On the Creative Commons Certificate Course

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

I can’t figure out how to provide public comments on your blog post, so I shall reply here. Your readers may also be interested in our recent CC Certificate Blog post. But more importantly, why would Creative Commons need to submit a proposal to discount its own educational offerings?

Re-Building Trust in Our Institutions

John Hagel

In my previous blog post , I tried to explain why we’ve been unable to resolve this paradox. I went into a lot more detail in that blog post on why this is the case. I wrote about the trust paradox about 8 years ago. The paradox is that we all say that trust is increasingly important, yet trust is rapidly eroding in all institutions worldwide. How could that be?

Learning Design isn’t for the wimpy

Clark Quinn

I’ve had my head down on a major project, a bunch of upcoming speaking engagements, some writing I’ve agreed to do, and…(hence the relative paucity of blog posts). That project, however, has been interesting for a variety of reasons, and one really is worth sharing: ID isn’t easy. We’ve been given some content, and it’s not just about being good little IDs and taking what they give us and designing instruction from it.

PKM and small business

Several years ago I tracked small business blogs with some interesting examples such as a sign company, a coffee roaster, and a metal fabricator. Some have gone out of business and others have stopped blogging but there a few that continue.

Need Your Feedback on my Triangulating Thinking | Full Circle Associates

Nancy White

Even the social networks give exposure to professionals and participation in these networks should not be automatically discounted. Finally, members of the network of practice begin to blog, write on their email list and web platform, about the work of the internal practitioner.

What Is To Be Done? (Part 1)

John Hagel

This blog post will focus on the first element – passion – and in subsequent blog posts I’ll layer in the other two elements.   We’ll begin to be more motivated by perceived rewards and discount the perceived risks along the way. My last post on The Dark Side of Technology definitely seems to have hit a responsive chord. Many of us see evidence of this dark side of technology every day in the world around us. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

The Dark Side of Technology

John Hagel

  It draws out and intensifies certain cognitive biases that I’ve written about elsewhere so I’ll just briefly summarize them here: They magnify our perception of risk and discount our perception of reward. I’ll lay out an alternative, much more exciting, path in my next blog post but, for now, let’s just really absorb the dark side of technology – understand it, feel it, acknowledge it and confront it. I’m going to disrupt the Silicon Valley script. You know the one.

The Big Shift in Strategy - Part 2

John Hagel

In my last blog post , I suggested that we’re going through a big shift in strategy from strategies of terrain to strategies of trajectory.    In that blog post, I made the case that strategies of terrain are increasingly dangerous in times of accelerating change, but I left you hanging in terms of what strategies of trajectory might look like.
