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.

My blog was me.

Social Media: An Interview

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

I started using ICQ ( [link] ) for example in 1997 (My ICQ number: 1287181) well before it was acquired by AOL. But probably the definitive date would be when I wrote An Introduction to RSS for Educational Designers in 2002 ( [link] ). I have always viewed RSS as the prototypical social media technology. And RSS has been the technology that, for me, has formed the basis of things like the Personal Learning Environment (PLE) and my gRSShopper content syndication application.

Blogging Help

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

You probably want to start by following some education technology blogs, both to get a feel for reading blogs and to inform yourself about some of the different options out there. At a certain point, you should begin commenting on blog posts and to start your own blog, to become more used to working with these tools in a practical way for yourself (as opposed to looking at them from the point of view of trying them in class).

This movement predates the development of the world wide web in 1994, as seen for example in the Gutenberg Project, an open access archive of public domain works of classic literature.

RSS went through several early versions: RSS 0.91, which was the first production version, RSS 1.0,

Reframing the news

Doc Searls

What made it blogging was its format: latest stuff on top and a “permalink” to every post. Alas, Twitter posts tend to be snow on the water, flowing to near-oblivion and lacking syndication through RSS —though there are hacks.). Dave created RSS — Really Simple Syndication — as we know it today , and got The New York Times and other publications (including many papers and nearly all Web publishers) to adopt it as well. For RSS it’s syndication.

I’ve been using Feedburner for my blog RSS Feeds since 2005! It was one of a few good free options in the early days of blogging.

Easiest way to check this – subscribe to your own blog in Google Reader, and see if it’s pulling the latest content.)

Should All Learning Professionals be Blogging?

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

It was pretty much a given that most if not all of the responses to this question , posted on the Learning Circuits blog, would be "no". But here the caveat mentioned above comes into play, and it is this: if (as Dave Lee suggests) other technologies can do the same job just as well, then we can let go of the idea that every professional should be blogging per se: "Web 2.0 Blogs, wikis, lists, voting, rss feeds, timelines, photo sites, podcasts, vlogs, plogs, mashups, etc.
