From Learning Management to Personal Knowledge Management
AUGUST 11, 2012
But in fact it has been clear for some time that many individuals are already taking responsibility for not only acquiring new knowledge and skills but for a wide range of activities for their continuous learning and professional development.
Defibrillating Knowledge Management
OCTOBER 1, 2012
This is not the original title for this blog, the change is a bow towards the good folks on the ACT-KM listserv, some of whom are checking for a pulse on the teenaged wrist of Knowledge Management. However, for organizational knowledge, the focus is on these conversations.
Is Twitter Where Connections Go to Die? – The Unfollowing Experiment – The Follow-Up
NOVEMBER 2, 2016
Indeed, while re-reading through ‘ Is Twitter Where Connections Go to Die? – One thing I can share with you all is that once I have seen the light of a much smarter way of using Twitter through public lists alone it’s rather tough to go back to anything else for that matter, so I haven’t.
Twitter Is Where Conversations Go To Die
AUGUST 19, 2012
Twitter has now become, once again, another messaging board system, like a good bunch of them out there of the once so-called social networking sites. What Twitter did, to use companies like Seesmic to grow and now killing them with their new API rules, is evil.
Google Plus and Twitter – How They Work for Me Hand in Hand

Nancy White and Suzy – An Intro to Twitter
APRIL 27, 2011
Over the last few days, perhaps last couple of weeks, I have been having, once again, that ongoing love / hate relationship with Twitter, inclining itself a little bit more on the hate side of things this time around. Tweeting is owned by Twitter.
Collaborators, Cooperators and People I Learn From
SEPTEMBER 24, 2015
So I decided to look deeper, in retrospect, and try to define for myself the kinds of relationships I have built over the years with the people who I used to follow on Twitter and see how I would be able to group them accordingly. It’s, by far, my favourite feature from Twitter from all along.

Can IBM Watson Workspace Save Our Productivity?
OCTOBER 28, 2016
The thing is that I have always been a bit concerned about the specific role we seem to have placed upon AI to come to our rescue and solve all of our societal / business problems, even to the point of replacing our very own decision making processes, therefore becoming the new managers.

Let The Next Adventure Begin – The With Whom (#CAWW)
FEBRUARY 8, 2014
In a now more than ever hyperconnected, networked and complex systems driven working environment I pretty soon came to the conclusion, as I went solo and independent, that my odds to make a bigger difference out there would have been more notorious by being part of a network of rather talented, passionate, engaged, inspiring and rather thought-provoking knowledge (Web) workers, with whom, if anything, you sense you aren’t anymore the smartest person in the room, the network is.
Whatever Happened to Critical Thinking?

Google Plus – Who Owns the Filter Bubble?
JULY 19, 2013
That’s actually one of the reasons why I have never been a fan of Facebook, Twitter and various other social networking tools that do pretty much the same thing: putting constraints in place by the system, within the streams, thinking it knows better than their end-users.
Reflections from 2011 – Focused and Purposeful Social Networking
DECEMBER 28, 2011
FB, Twitter & G+. Take, for instance, Twitter. Over the course of time, the user experience has deteriorated so bad, including its third party, or even their own, Twitter Apps that I have been on the brink of giving up on it altogether and never walk back several times.

@Janetter or How I Started to Enjoy Twitter Once Again
JANUARY 10, 2012
There used to be a time when I was very much in love with Twitter. But then, after a short while, I started hating Twitter. Over the course of just a few weeks Twitter managed to destroy, in a very pernicious manner, not only the overall user experience, but the entire ecosystem as well that made it a success in the first place: Third party apps. It was through my good friend Rachel Happe that I first heard (Of course, on Twitter!)

Regardless of the organisation or the management layer. So, instead of driving the adoption of middle managers from the European Commission, we talked about business purposes and how social technologies could act as a rather valuable and unprecedented enabler towards achieving a certain number of goals.
