Is it time to start newsletters again?

David Weinberger

But it’s also got me wondering: Is the time ripe for newsletters again? I wrote a personal newsletter for about ten years. I’d coined the phrase “hyperlinked organization” there, and when I left I started a new newsletter called “Journal of the Hyperlinked Organization,” or JOHO. They wrote in and I responded in the newsletter itself. So what did my newsletter add? Newsletters are an opt-in push medium.

Many of you will have noticed, either through my Facebook updates or my newsletter, that I like to point to interesting things. Whether stunning images, quirky insights, or ideas that interest me, they are all things that have made me think "Ooh that''s interesting." The things I find interesting say something about me. Shared links are like the clothes you wear, they project an image of yourself that you hope some people will find attractive and be drawn to.

Whose Connectivism?

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

I would like to make just one point, that it is not "Siemen's 'Connectivism,'" that he gave a name to a theory and approach a number of us had been working on for some time. I don't mind saying I borrow the name from him, but I would certainly say this is as much my theory (and that of numerous other people) as it is his.

What Makes a MOOC Massive?

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

What made the course a MOOC is that these contributions were comprehended as a *part* of the course, and were all accessible to course participants, either directly, through the newsletter, or through alternative syndication using an OPML list. Responding to a LinkedIn Discussion. When people ask me what makes a MOOC 'massive' I respond in terms of the *capacity* of the MOOC rather than any absolute numbers.

What blogging was

David Weinberger

Newsletters vs. Posts. Newsletters and ‘zines (remember when that was a word?) Blogs intersected uncomfortably with many online newsletters (including mine ). Because it was assumed that a successful blog needed new posts every day or so, content for blogs tended to be shorter and more tentative than content in newsletters. At a recent Fellows Hour at the Berkman Center the topic was something like “Whatever happened to blogging?,”

If the newsletter didn't mean something to me personally, I would not keep it up. That's not even four years! But it's actually a major commitment and I respect anyone who can carry out something on a regular basis for 200 weeks.

Losing interest in social media: there is no there there

George Siemens

I’ve been blogging since 2000 and can attribute a numerous positives to this activity: I was hired at University of Manitoba because of my blog and bi-weekly newsletter. Google+ was a bit of a breaking point for me. After recreating my online social network ( largely based on blogs from early 2000) in Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, and Quora, G+ was a chore.

Replacing Email?

My newsletter statistics tell a similar story. My website gets a lot of views on the web - almost a million page views in the last six months - and the number of email recipients of my newsletter continues to grow slowly, now over 3300 a day and around 5000 for the weekly. My Facebook friends, meanwhile, which peaked at 3000 or so, have *dropped* to 1800 - many people don't want the newsletter in their social networking.
