- I'm enjoying catching up reading this over some lunch. I think the marketing aspect of #bonkopen may backfire. But I also find it interesting that theTwitter person only retweets positive things and seems to have stopped replying to critical things. This is another element of open. We all need our teflon jammies on.May 3, 2012
- What made me laugh is that I went to the Course Sites blog that showed up as an address in some of those tweets, and it is a lovely little blog with, you know, those bloggy things: RSS, labels, things like that. So at least SOMEONE at Blackboard knows what a blog is... unfortunately, they didn't let that person anywhere near the so-called blogging tool course participants are using... :-)May 3, 2012
- I should post this separately but I thought of the #bonkopen discussion board and some other things. QOTD from's new book: "The real -time Web is not a queue (like your email in-box) but rather a stream. Don't even try to keep up. Learn to sample. You aren't digesting volumes of input. You are tuning your antennae for the right signals and bringing the right information to you while you turn attention away from information that isn't right for you." ~Net Smart (P.102)May 3, 2012
- The metaphor of the stream is one that I have taken profoundly to heart thanks to Google+. Before, I was in Google Reader most of the time, and RSS provides some of that sense of the stream, but also some of the annoying features of a queue (like when Google Reader insists on telling you how many things you have unread... and you then hit the four-digits and just say, okay, crap, mark ALL as read)... but now with Google+, I am totally into the stream. It works for me. Definitely gotta learn to love the stream.
I saw a tweet that kept being repeated about Bonk's first lecture (and yes, folks, it is a lecture, right?) being like drinking from a firehouse. Not my style.
Me, I prefer the stream... :-)May 3, 2012
