After Bitly’s fail

Doc Searls

Last night huge thunderstorms moved across New Hampshire, and later across Boston. There was even a tornado watch (the red outline north of Keene, in the radar image on the left, from the NOAA.) So I thought I’d tweet that.

Here is an interesting study that I have just bumped into a couple of days ago, and which may resonate with plenty of folks out there on the relevancy of Social Business in today’s corporate world.

An Emerging Platform for Digital, Inclusive Innovation

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

The Internet era was born in the mid 1990s. On August 9, 1995, Netscape ’s IPO caught the world by storm.

Flipping assessment

Clark Quinn

Inspired by Dave Cormier’s learning contract , and previous work at learner-defined syllabi and assessment, I had a thought about learner-created project evaluation rubrics. I’m sure this isn’t new, but I haven’t been tracking this space (so many interests, so little time), so it’s a new thought for me at any rate ;).

Dave Snowden

In case of confusion, this post is part of a catch up exercise, one month late (sigh) so written in July, posted with a May date but I am sure readers can sort out which comment relates to which date! Having driven to Oxford and back at high speed, we just made it back to Hay in time to make Don Cupitt's talk on progress only five minutes in. Thankfully he had a handout which provides a neat summary of what he said as a handout. Said handout is a much better summary. Great places Musings

David Weinberger

Last night was the annual Berkman dinner. Lovely. It inevitably turned into a John Palfrey love fest, since he is leaving Harvard very soon, and he is much beloved. People stood and spoke beautifully and insightfully about what John has meant to them. Jonathan Zittrain and Ethan Zuckerman in addition were predictably hilarious.)
