[2b2k] No, now that you mention it, we’re not overloaded with information

David Weinberger

On a podcast today, Mitch Joel asked me something I don’t think anyone else has: Are we experiencing information overload? Some are sooo delicious, but you can’t live long enough to taste them all. That’s where I think we are with information overload. But it’s not Information Overload any more than the atmosphere is Air Overload. Information overload is so 1990s

Downloading one's address book information into a CSV file is an example of this freedom. For Delicious, the primary data are the bookmarks, the corresponding user tags, and the relationships among the tags.

Using social media for onboarding

Harold Jarche

Last year, I looked at new hire practices and found some interesting methods: Ensuring new hires understand the shadow or informal part of the organization through the use of tools such as network maps (Jon Katzenbach, Senior Partner of Booz & Company, author of The Wisdom of Teams).

FAQ 77

Network Learning: Working Smarter

Harold Jarche

Tweet “In the period ahead of us, more important than advances in computer design will be the advances we can make in our understanding of human information processing – of thinking, problem solving, and decision making…” ~ Herbert Simon, Economics Nobel-prize winner (1968).

Information Radar

Tony Karrer

You need information radar that continuously scans for new, quality information that you should be aware of. Information Addiction Let me start this topic with a word of caution. This reaction causes you to seek more information. Delicious Popular.

Learning as Artifact Creation

George Siemens

Education is an idea/information-based process. How information is accessed, created, and shared is revealing about the future of learning. Essentially, follow information in order to understand the future of higher education. Today, information is networked and digital. This process reflects my earlier point: big trends unfold behind the scenes over time and in education, they map and mirror to what people do with information that is digital and networked.


Jay Cross

If a group doesn’t exist for facilitate your informal learning, make one. Formal learning takes place in classrooms; informal learning happens in workscapes. Developing a platform to support informal learning is analogous to landscaping a garden.

FAQ 81

Curating our personal technology configurations

Nancy White

For a while I was obsessed with tagging material that helped us see others’ configuration, via my Delicious tags. Curating Resources – mostly the same as sharing information, but with the added layer of tags, rating mechanisms, aggregation tools.

my pkm story

Harold Jarche

In addition, I played with several feed readers (currently Feedly) and a series of social bookmark platforms (Furl; Magnolia; Delicious; Diigo). Organizations over-managed information because it was easy to do. Organizations are still enamoured with information technology.

Ask what value you can add

Harold Jarche

Posting a social bookmark to a service like Delicious does not create additional noise for your networked peers in a social network. This does not preclude us from collecting lots of information (Seek), but it should make us consider appropriate ways to share.

Starting to work out loud

Harold Jarche

Most people are too busy managing in the industrial/information age workplace and have no slack to try to learn how work in the network age. Using tools like Diigo , or Delicious moves them off a single device, makes them more searchable, and (later) makes them shareable.

Teaching Online Courses – 60 Great Resources

Tony Karrer

What a difference a decade makes – now there’s almost TOO much information. I also did some quick searches for various kinds of things and added them into eLearning Learning (via delicious). I received an inquiry about resources that would help instructors who are about to move into teaching online courses. It made me immediately think back to my first experience with an online session.

The Dark Side of Technology

John Hagel

  There’s a delicious paradox here: the very same technologies that bring us awesome opportunity and new possibilities are at the very same time bringing us mounting performance pressure, accelerating change and growing uncertainty. One effect of this is to accelerate the pace of change – information flows at a faster and faster pace to more and more nodes, making it possible for all of us to see things faster and to change our actions more quickly than ever before. 

PKM in 2013

Harold Jarche

When we use our knowledge to describe some data, such as what we remember from an experience or our summary of a book, we convey this knowledge by creating information, even though writing it down is not perfect. Sensing is how we personalize information and use it.

Harold Jarche

I switched my social bookmarking service from Delicious to Diigo and noticed that Diigo offered a method to save my favourites automatically. This redundancy will provide me with two ways to retrieve information, either from my blog or my bookmarks. In addition, each person needs to develop individualized processes of filing, classifying and annotating digital information for later retrieval. Here are some of the things I learned via Twitter this past week.

Zero switching cost

Jay Cross

When my Internet Time Alliance colleague Harold Jarche switched from Delicious to Diigo, I figured I should probably do the same. Diigo has made it drop-dead simple to swap your tags from Delicious into their app. They even make it easy to update Delicious and Diigo in parallel. Here’s the email I received immediately after uploading my Delicious tags into Diigo. As rumors swirl around Delicious, the lure of transferring to a service like Diigo is irresistible.

The MOOC of One

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

What we''ve done, very deliberately, in our open online courses, is to create this kind of network structure, so that the promotion of information, the distribution of content, is a very, very minimal part of what the online course is. They might be communicating on WordPress or on Flickr delicious, posting videos on YouTube, but they''re always at the center of their Internet sphere. I want to talk about the MOOC of one.

Background: there is a huge quantity of information on the web - this makes it hard for users to find the best resources for adequate navigation, but at the same token, the web can trigger learning.

Introduction to Social Networking

Harold Jarche

tools are a form of social networking, but for this module we’re going to focus on “ego-centric&# social networks, those that are focused on individuals, as opposed to networks that build up around objects, such as Delicious, Flickr, Slideshare, etc. Facebook was originally developed for college students to connect, so it has a more informal, social air than you find on LinkedIn.

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

It happens informally a lot. There are hundreds of weather stations around the world and they pull these weather stations, the content is in a certain code, they decode the content, and then they present the information. Jay Cross characterize this as informal learning, and what is informal learning? Informal learning is learning that you conduct for yourself, through your interactions in a community. We need to be open to new information.
