Facebook’s Cambridge Analytica problems are nothing compared to what’s coming for all of online publishing

Doc Searls

Let’s start with Facebook’s Surveillance Machine , by Zeynep Tufekci in last Monday’s New York Times.

Can we start again?

Dave Snowden

One of the major issues in virtually any change initiative in organisations is the constant assumption that one can start from scratch. I addressed the issue of setting goals and targets in a series of four posts earlier this month which starts here.

10 reasons to modernize workplace training

Jane Hart

The current training model can no longer keep pace with the speed of business and the continuous nature of change. It is time to give it an overhaul. Here are 10 issues associated with current training approaches and some brief pointers about how they can be addressed. Social learning

A Framework for Building AI Capabilities

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

After decades of promise and hype, artificial intelligence has finally reached a tipping point of market acceptance. AI is seemingly everywhere. Every day we can read about the latest AI advances and applications from startups and large companies.

a compass for the future of work

Harold Jarche

There is little doubt that automation, by machines and software, is replacing human work and putting many current jobs at risk. How this will happen is uncertain, as an MIT Technology Review analysis of various projections shows a wide discrepancy. For example Forrester expects the US to lose 13.8M

Busting Myths!

Clark Quinn

As I have hinted, I’ve been working on a project that is related to what learning science has to do with learning design. And I can finally announce the project! I’ve been writing a book on debunking learning myths & superstitions, and unpacking some misconceptions.

Resolve To Do Your New Year's Resolutions Differently

John Hagel

Have you made your New Year’s resolutions yet? Be careful. For many, these resolutions are at risk of becoming a sorry joke. The cynics say that these are useless exercises that make us feel good for a few months, but that no one really has the intention or fortitude to follow them beyond that. We've all heard the statistics about how gym memberships spike early in the New Year but that the crowds quickly thin out and the gym is empty again by the end of February. Does it have to be this way?

Big Brother is Here: Thanks Google

Nine Shift

I had no idea Google listens in and records your in-person face-to-face conversations. In the ongoing uncovering of big tech's bad influence on society, my brilliant co-author assures me Big Brother is here, and it is Google. Two days ago she was talking with a young friend in-person about some beads made in India. The next day she got an ad on her cell phone for those very beads made in India. Her cell phone was not on during her conversation, just nearby. .

Making sense of what happened to Montecito

Doc Searls

Note the date on this map : That was more than a month before huge rains revised to red the colors in the mountains above Montecito. The LA Times also ran a story a week before last, warning about debris flows , which are like mud slides, but with lots of rocks.

Should we start again?

Dave Snowden

I interrupted this series for yesterday’s brief tribute to Ursula Le Guin. In the first post a couple of days ago I asked if, realistically, one can start from scratch in any organisational change initiative.

The Challenges of Executing a Transformational Strategy

The 2018 MIT CIO Symposium will take place on May 23. This year’s Symposium will be focused on the challenges of executing a digital transformation strategy. It’s no longer enough to have formulated a digital strategy for the business.

what they don’t teach at university, but should

Harold Jarche

Even after four years of study, many students leave their institutions of higher learning only to find themselves inadequately prepared for what is next. University graduates often go on to get a certificate in an applied area in hopes of getting a job.

Conversations not content

Euen Semple

The internet still holds so much potential to helps us understand and improve ourselves and the world around us. Sadly much of it has been turned into one big content farm. It doesn't need to be this way. It is not too late. Each of us can ask our selves every time we share, like, or write something: Will this post trigger people to think more deeply about its topic? Have I written it in a way that is more likely to open up debate than close it down?

It’s here!

Clark Quinn

So, as you ( should ) know, I’ve written a book debunking learning myths. Of course, writing it, and getting your mitts on it are two different things!

Critical Thinking for Educators

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

"Pick any article from the newspaper," I would say to my students. Bring it in and we'll analyze it." This was one of my favourite - and my most effective - activities in my critical thinking classes. I never knew what the students would bring in. With each article we would have to begin afresh.

More Evidence Schools Cause School Shooters

New York City mandated a decline in suspensions in its public schools. The result? A 21% increase in suspensions, a ccording to this NYT story. And one of those kids killed another student with a knife and badly injured another student. Yes, we need to abandon all-but-hunting-rifles.

Modern Workplace Learning Is A Collaboration Between L&D, Managers And Individuals

Modern Workplace Learning is therefore not just about delivering modern training; it recognises that individuals learn all the time as an integral part of daily work – whether they realise it or not – and that constant independent planned learning is of importance too. Although many modern professionals recognise they … Social learning

learning to create the future of work

Harold Jarche

I recently wrote that when we look at the future of work, the loss of current jobs, and the effects of automation we should use a compass to guide us, not a list of what the jobs of the future may look like. These kinds of maps get dated too quickly.

Why I love Facebook

Euen Semple

Well, OK, perhaps that is overstating it a bit. What has always interested me about the internet is the possibility it affords for bloody good conversations with interesting people. For whatever reasons Facebook is where that currently happens most often for me. Take my last post on Supporting Change. A great comments thread on Facebook, in large measure due to Louise Robey's first response. And barely a flicker on LinkedIn.

Shaping Serendipity through Narrative

John Hagel

We all want to be lucky, but we generally feel there's little we can do about it. I’ve long challenged the conventional view that luck is just something that happens to us and that there’s little we can do other than be prepared for it when it happens. I believe that we can significantly alter the probabilities of luck through choices we make on a daily basis – something that I’ve called “shaping serendipity.”

For privacy we need tech more than policy

Nature and the Internet both came without privacy. The difference is that we’ve invented privacy tech in the natural world, starting with clothing and shelter, and we haven’t yet done the same in the digital world.
