Doc Searls Weblog · Can marketing be conversational?

Doc Searls

Not long after Cluetrain came out, Jakob Nielsen floored me by pointing out something that should have been obvious but proved easy to miss: that the authors “defected” from marketing and took sides with markets against it

Role and Voice of Community Leaders - Your Input Needed

Tony Karrer

Based on the post He Had a Bad Day , Mark Oehlert , Heidi Fisk and I have had an email conversation that raises an interesting broader questions around the role, voice and communication norms of people who are the leaders / organizers of groups like the eLearningGuild. Should they try to stay behind the scenes and put members out in front? Should they have a strong voice and opinion that champions approaches or direction for the members? Do they need to remain neutral?

He Had a Bad Day

Tony Karrer

I just saw a post by Mark Oehlert - I'm tired people, so I'm only going to say this about 1,000 more times. - and it appears that Mark has had a bad day. The point (hard to see though as it is) however, is that with learning - the changes are going on inside our own heads and bodies. We are acted upon by outside forces but ultimately learning is an internal act mediated by our own individual/collective contexts. What learning is NOT is a product. It can NOT be shrink-wrapped.

Weights and Measures

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Responding to this post about the metric system from Doug Noon: In Canada, the metric system was implemented gradually while I was in school - first distances and temperatures, then weights and measures. The parts that were used, I learned. the parts that were not yet in use, I didn't learn.

Time Spent on Blogging

Tony Karrer

A frequent question I get at the end of any presentation on eLearning 2.0 is how much time I spend on blog reading and writing and how anyone can work that into their already too busy life. I also got a form of this among the questions from the grad student (I'm slowly working through these.) Some quick thoughts - Scanning Activity Replaced I likely spend an average of 30-45 minutes per day reading/writing that is part of what I call "scanning" which is staying up to speed on what's going on.

Risk of Identity Theft Due to Social Networking and Blogging

Tony Karrer

First question - Identity theft and electronic stalking are scary issues. The more one you participate in blogs, discussions groups and other social networking tools, the more information there is about you in the world for anyone to access. Does this concern you? If yes, what guidelines do you follow to minimize the risk? If no, why not? I am definitely concerned about identity theft, and less so about electronic stalking. Of course, the situation with Kathy Sierra was an eye opener.

Note: 9/17/2007 - fixed link to correct instructor's blog. Some good comments coming in. I've received several good questions from Kirsten Morton that I'll be answering over the next few blog posts. She is a graduate student in adult education and learning technologies at the University of Colorado. This semester, one of her courses focuses on trends in eLearning and requires that each student start a blog.

What Is Left?

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

I have always described myself as 'left' and I have been described as everything from a Marxist to a 'moderate socialist and radical democrat'. I have run politically from the left side of the spectrum, and when asked to describe my politics, will either choose 'very liberal' or 'socialist', depending on what the choices are. So I am in a position to offer a response. But a response to what? What is left?" That is, in the first instance, an empirical question.
