πŸ’¬ Sharing in the Open

Replied to Sharing in the Open

I can share something now and google it 8 years from now to share it again. How cool is that?

Here here to sharing. Not only do I love linking back to the past, but I also love the ability to build on ideas over time. This can come in the form of elaboration or clarification.

  1. Totally agree Aaron. And sometimes it is the comments people add to posts that invite the elaboration and/or clarification. Over the years, some of these extensions to the original thoughts shared have been key opportunities for me to learn.

    1. Absolutely, I remember you challenging one of my posts a few years ago. I was making the argument that online learning was firstly about ideas, rather than people and personalities. You suggested that:

      As connected learners we are not just curating ideas and resources, we are creating relationships, some are just β€˜weak ties’ but others are very meaning, rich and strong. I don’t just read Dean, I hear his voice, I connect to previous things he has said, and I pause just a little longer if he says something I disagree with.(source)

      This spark made me reconsider a number of things and who knows how many posts.

      Sadly, this comment is no longer available as it was lost with the death of Google+.

      1. Wow, I can remember writing that.

        Isn’t it sad to watch these tools disappear, taking an archive of information with them? CoComment tracked my comments around the web. Posterous died and took all the images I had on this blog during its first iteration. WikiSpaces took with it dozens of sites and works I enjoyed collaborating on. Ning took communities of conversations away. The web2.0 era has faded away with creative tools lacking effective models to generate profit and maintain their usefulness.
