The social Web before social networks: a report from 2003

We relied on one another, as strong and weak tie neighbours, often congregating in these buildings to share, to socialize, and to learn. I worry, however, that ‘ Nimby Neighbourhoods’ will supersede actual social relationship building.

E-Learning Generations

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

During the development of this second generation we saw theconsolidation of computer-based software and content, and the commercializationof the network itself. Meanwhile, the world of networks began to commercialize.Commercial bulletin board services emerged, such as Prodigy, AOL, GEnie andCompuserv. The idea that books or courses could be broken down intosmaller chunks suggested to people that these chunks could be created in onecontext and reused in another context.

Connective Knowledge and Open Resources

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

To me, the theory is and always has been ‘learning networks’. This is a play on words: it is in part a theory about using networks to support learning, and in part a theory about how networks learn. It led me to propose content syndication networks in education, and to embrace social media in education. I outlined my theory in the paper ‘Learning Networks’ in 2004 [link] and George wrote his important paper also in 2004.

[berkman] Anil Dash on “The Web We Lost”

David Weinberger

In the mid to late 1990s, the social Web arose. ” He refers to the IoS [iphone operating system] Terms of Service for app developers that includes text that says, literally: “If you want to criticize a religion, write a book.” ” You can distribute that book through the Apple bookstore, but Apple doesn’t want you writing apps that criticize religion.

What blogging was

David Weinberger

Some of us had been arguing from the beginning of the Web that the Web was more a social space than a publishing, informational or commercial space — “more” in the sense of what was driving adoption and what was making the Web the dominant shaping force of our culture. Blogrolls were an early social network. Except: Much expertise has migrated to blogs, blogs have uncovered many experts, and the networking of bloggy knowledge makes a real difference.).

We also have a more recent theory, constructivism, which has so many varieties I cannot count and won't try, but it's based essentially on the idea of social interaction, negotiation of meeting, finding a common ground, and a model of learning where learners construct their own model. Over time, the concept of learning objects and learning object repositories lead to the idea of learning object repository networks. They create this network. It's a neural network.

The Role of Open Educational Resources in Personal Learning

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Learning and cognition happen in a network.And I could go on and on and on about what that means, but basically, first ofall, learning happens in your brain, your brain is composed of a network ofinterconnected neurons, and learning happens in a society, and society iscomposed of a bunch of interconnected people. And, they are networks. The second thing is, networks need to be open in order tofunction. If the communication is obstructed,this is a network failure.
