    Irony

    I realised this week that I have started:

    1) a website to promote curiosity and learning;
    2) a consultancy advising people on harnessing human sociability; and
    3) a campaign to help people be more conscious of how to manage their minds.

    And so now I:

    1) have no time to learn anything;
    2) never see my friends; and
    3) am really stressed.

    The irony of this is not lost on me.

    Work Literacy 08 Online Learning Event

    A very nice discussion and analysis of an online learning community:

    "So what did I learn or what was reinforced?
    * A loose-knit online learning community can scale to many participants and remain effective.
    * Only a small percentage ~10% of members will be active.
    * Wikis need to be extremely focused on real tasks/projects in order to be adopted.
    * If facilitators can seed good questions and provide feedback, then conversations can flourish.
    * Use a very gentle hand in controlling the learners and some will become highly participative.
