It was very compelling stuff, with very real examples, and meaningful decisions. The real world resources were to be used to accomplish the task (I cheated; I did it just by the information in the scenarios), and mistakes were guided towards the correct answer.

A Perfect Example of a Bad Boss: A Middle School Principal

Bob Sutton

  She has no one with feet on the ground feeding her information - consequently, her “ideal” visions and new structures are theoretical only – they are never held up to the light for discussion or dissection, to see if they’re workable or not.    One example:  we no longer retain students who flunk more than two major classes in grades 7 or 8.    We’re not really sure – she’s never officially discussed or even informed us of this policy change.

Information, Money and Related Subjects

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Given this intangible character of money, it is not surprising that major advances in information technologies have in turn led to major advances in the way we deal with money and payments. Money is continuing its centuries old transformation from being embodied in objects with intrinsic value, like gold and silver, to being nothing more than information in the digital wallets of our mobile devices as well as in our digital accounts someplace out there in the cloud.

Noam Chomsky, security, and equivocal information

David Weinberger

So first question – after participating or viewing the videos for the event: Is it helpful to capture examples?
