The Future of Financial Services

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

By analyzing the earliest recorded transactions, researchers believe that writing evolved in ancient Mesopotamia thousands of years ago, as an innovation to keep track of financial records.

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

This has resulted in all kinds of innovative applications, - search, e-commerce, entertainment, social networks, Watson-like intelligent systems, and so on. Moreover, since all the key technologies of the Web came from the research and academic community, they were available to anyone free of charge, including open source implementations of many of the key software components. Many companies embraced this collaborative, open culture.

Cloud - the Emergence of a New Model of Computing

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

The last group I want to mention consists of all the people and companies selling ad-on products and services on top of the basic computer systems, such as application developers. Over time, the IBM S/360 family , announced in 1964, emerged as the leading products of the central computing model. A fairly large ecosystem developed around S/360 of companies providing a large variety of hardware and software add-on products, applications and services.

According to The Economist, not only is GDP a poor measure of material well-being and prosperity, but it’s not even a reliable gauge of production. GDP is a relic of a time dominated by manufacturing, where the production of physical goods was easier to measure.

Global Science Excellence in Canada

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

From my perspective, the main reasons for the desperation are 1) stagnated support for basic research, 2) attempts to force innovation by ineffective and obstructive industry co-funding requirements, and 3) futile efforts to predict the areas in which breakthroughs will occur." These things drive innovation at home and create a sense of pride and unity." It advocates "a 'needs driven' innovation program to fund research aligned with national objectives."

The Best of Times, The Worst of Times: opportunities and challenges for the L&D profession

Charles Jennings

Innovation is their driver and change is accepted as the norm. It also means reducing spend by using open source technology, exploiting tools that are already being used in other parts of the organisation, and looking for new, faster and better ways to deliver value.

[berkman] Elliot Maxwell on Openness

David Weinberger

Elliot Maxwell is giving a Berkman lunchtime talk called “Openness: How increasing accessibility and responsiveness can transform processes and systems.&# He sees openness as a lens for understanding processes and systems. Openness is a continuum, Elliot says. For example, open source software benefits from openness, but because decisions are made by assigned individuals, it is not itself fully open. Openness is in part an attitude, he says.

Learning in times of economic meltdown

Jay Cross's Informal Learning

The challenge for organizations is to use smart delivery, to replace classes with technology, to embrace open source, and perhaps to adopt a software-as-a-service model. People have become the primary means of production; it’s time to give the people functions in organizations equal standing with finance, sales, and production. in times of crisis you go in search of the essence of what you have and what you need => a personal process; learning is personal.

I also needed to prove that the web could be used for online learning, so I took a guide I had created for my Grande Prairie students, Stephen's Guide to the Logical Fallacies , and published it on my website, openly licensed, free for all to use (the license was based on similar open licensing I had seen in the MUD community). But it was brilliantly engineered; I learned tons by digging through the source, learning how all the Javascript worked, and adapting it for my own purposes.

What Universities Must Learn About Social Networks

Jay Cross

Innovation has been based too much on using (and wasting) Nature. We need lots of innovation.

I want to talk to you about the concept of free, the concept of open learning, the concept of networked learning in a networked world and the concept of the institution.
