I have been discussing business models for information-based businesses and in those talks realized how Tim Kastelle’s Aggregate, Filter, Connect model makes good sense. If you’re in the information or knowledge business, which is any media company, then it’s exceptionally important to master each of these three processes.

- [Information] The Form of Informal
The words 'formal' and 'informal' are used in distinct senses. In one sense, something is 'formal' or 'informal' according to whether it forms some part of a recognition infrastructure - the system of classes, programs and institutions that constitute our certificate and degree granting structure. What complicates the matter is that the criticism - 'how can somebody write a book about informal learning' misses the mark in both senses.
