Exploring Business Types and Business Models
MARCH 20, 2017
But I’ve also written a lot about business types/roles, including a popular Harvard Business Review article almost 20 years ago. Many of you have approached me to ask, so what’s the difference between a business model and a business type? And, if there is a difference, what business models should each business type adopt? And, not to keep you in suspense, there is a difference between business models and business types as I use them. OK, I’ve created some confusion.

It's a simple comparison, graphing the candidates' word use by tokens and types, as follows: To count tokens, you simply add +1 to the count each time the candidate utters a word. To count types, you add +1 to the count each time the candidate utters a new word. Just what is a type?
Leadership by Example

MAY 29, 2009
The primary reasons for doing the eLearning Tour was that it is hard to see examples of what is being done by fellow eLearning professionals and get a sense of the patterns that exist. And while I believe that I gave a flavor of what's happening out there through the tour, my gut tells me that it would be helpful to capture more examples. So first question – after participating or viewing the videos for the event: Is it helpful to capture examples?

Types of Meaning
Stephen Downes: Half an Hour
JANUARY 9, 2009
I don't want to spend a whole lot of time on this, but I do want to take enough time to be clear that there are, unambiguously, numerous types of meaning. Consider the classic constructivist activity of 'making meaning', for example. Herewith, a bit of an account of some of the many different types of meaning: Literal meaning - the sentence means what it says. Which types of language is the word used in: letters or reports, spoken or written, biology or business etc?"
Types of Blog Discussions
MARCH 27, 2007
See Five Things Meme as an example. as an example. I've been involved with several different groups of people who are having different kinds of discussions that happen among bloggers. The most common models of blog discussions seem to have turned into a few patterns: Organic Blog Discussions - someone posts something interesting, lots of bloggers post on the topic, distributed discussion ensues. Blog Tag Memes - Someone posts a question and "Tags" five people to give their response.

Types of Knowledge and Connective Knowledge
Stephen Downes: Half an Hour
SEPTEMBER 14, 2008
Historically, we have had two types of knowledge: First, 'qualitative' knowledge. What colour the object is, for example. How many things do we see, for example.

These two types of knowledge combine the best of human capacities: our ability to perceive, to sense the world, and our ability to calculate, to think about the world.
The Baseline Journey

Typographers: the Original UX Designers
JULY 8, 2011
This made the type nerd in me happy and hopeful about the respect paid to typography on UX design. Below are a couple quotes that resonated with both the type and UX nerd in me. There is good contrast in type size to indicate titles, subtitles, and body copy.

The new work
MAY 5, 2013
All work today can be reduced to just four basic types of jobs, according to Lou Adler. So I began to map Hamel’s essential work competencies against Adler’s job types. For example, the S&P stock index in 2009 was 81% intangible assets, up from 17% in 1975.

The Net: Free infrastructure for speech, enterprise and assembly
JANUARY 13, 2010
Nothing in human history, with the possible exception of movable type — has done more to encourage all those freedoms. Take radio and TV, for example. For example, when we say the Net consists of “sites, with “domains and “locations that we “architect, “design, “build and “visit, we are saying the Internet is a place.
Google Brain: Inductive Thinking and Curiosity

and decides quiet a lot of information can be gained by this type of superficial processing of large quantities of material. This more superficial processing may be particularly well suited to inductive problems where principles may be extrapolated from different examples or instances.
Life lessons from the keyboard.
JUNE 11, 2013
Even the discomfort I often feel when typing can be an example of this. I tend to bash on, trying to type faster than I actually can. But recently I have begun to slow down and notice my typing more, allowing myself that microsecond of awareness, giving myself the chance to notice which key I am about to press and then, most importantly, not getting frustrated or irritated when I miss a key.

A return to constraints
DECEMBER 9, 2016
However I have been modifying my September thoughts somewhat and I’ve increasingly made a distinction between robust and resilient types of constraint. Each of the constraint types below apply to both. Think of a salt marsh to contrast with the sea wall if you want an example.
co-creation as a service
NOVEMBER 25, 2015
However, examples of emergent practices can inform us, as long as we see them as guide posts, not rule books. This is not a cookie-cutter type of service. Most best practices are self-evident, whereas the problems that consume our time and efforts are usually complex.

Evolution of the Chief Learning Officer
JULY 11, 2016
If, for example, a CLO has no sense of ‘why’ they’re in the position in the first place, how can we expect them to deviate from an LMS and course evaluation mindset? The C-Suite members are culpable for this type of thinking.
