Whose Side(wiki) Are You On?

Doc Searls

The arguments here were foreshadowed in the architecture of the Web itself, the essence of which has been lost to history — or at least to search engines. Look up Wikipedia+Web on Google and you won’t find Wikipedia’s World Wide Web entry on the first page of search results.

A really good example from the Gamification Wiki is the use of frequent flyer points. We've been through this with learning objects, with learning design, and more: the problem of learning is not a search problem. Colleges and universities will themselves be forced to rethink their role in society (it's fascinating that the Contact North document does not make this point at all).

Harold Jarche

Sending out a clear memo (email) may have worked before, but looking for that email or document six months later on some kind of shared intranet drive is another issue completely.

One of my colleagues at togetherLearn voiced concern that it was disorienting to have our internal discussions spread over several social platforms, a standalone wiki, a persistent Skype chat, and email. A little knowledge is a dangerous thing, and I admit to being a klutz with a dozen different online presentation platforms, another dozen discussion systems, and more than sixty online apps for drawing, mapping, searching, and sharing. The Search section has a few specialty tools.
