At the National eXtension Conference (#nexconf) next week, Network Literacy CoP members will be wearing Ask Me badges. If you've got questions about online networks or social media, we'd love to try to answer them. Even better would be if you'd share something your excited about - we're there to learn!

I still listen to the original TWiT and find it useful for keeping up with technology news. I need to get back to listening to http://thefutureandyou.com . I found it thought provoking. I listen to almost every cast at 1.5 speed, and many books at a faster rate. Thanks for sharing your list. 
Having recently participated in the Exploring Personal Learning Networks seminar (#xplrpln), I found the discussion around reciprocity in a PLN interesting. For me, my PLN is not only the people that I learn from and that lea...

Way cool NY Times article about citizen science and crowdsourcing research information about bird migrations. Any Extension peers interested in a citizen science project? It could fit many of our existing volunteer programs.

The online network eBird uses data turned in by tens of thousands of citizen scientists to create what may be the first real-time view of the world's bird populations.

If you've enjoyed some of the amazing footage from the Olympics this year, chances are you might have a remote controlled drone to thank for it.

While the USA lags behind in regards to allowing drones commercially, other countries do not have these limitations. Hopefully proposed changes to these regulations will help show the general public that these amazing tools can benefit us all.

Different way of thinking about using clickers for research in addition to teaching.

A potentially high impact Extension program, especially in communities that have not split their sewer/storm water systems.

Story
Introduction
My work focuses on how organizations and individuals can be more effective through innovation and leadership. I'm especially interested in organizational change and the impact of technology on organizational/individual work systems.  Much of this focus is with Cooperative Extension Services (CES), but most is transferable to non-profit sector organizations. Areas of interest include: 

* Technology transfer and adoption
* Ways of creating new work systems/methods based on innovation and technology
* Successful adaption of change
* How leadership development and training can affect change
* New leadership and change strategies, especially focusing on complexity based theories
