Listened TIDE

This episode to celebrate the life of Dai Barnes is co-hosted by Doug Belshaw and Eylan Ezekiel, featuring contributions from friends and listeners to the TIDE podcast.

Show notes

Reflecting on the death of David Bowie, St Vincent suggests that “we have lost a hero, we have lost a friend”.

I felt something similar when hearing of Dai’s passing. I never met Bowie and never met Dai. With his passing, I was left reflecting upon the impact TIDE has had on my life.

I have listened to every episode, often sped up, but listened none-the-less. Although there were many of Dai’s arguments that challenged me and others that I disagreed with, his manner was always positive. I was always grateful for his openness and honesty. This is what I will miss the most and feel had the biggest impact on me as a learner.

My favourite memory is when he shared his failed job interview where he found himself standing on-top of a table. Priceless!

Thank you Doug and Eylan for compiling this celebration of Dai’s life.

Listened Episode 116: A Climate of Safety

Doug Belshaw and Dai Barnes discuss the development of social credit in China. Barnes shares how he got his students to think about this by creating their own social credit for the school space that steps away from teachers dealing with discipline and detentions. This reminds me of Google’s thought experiment associated with the human ledger.

This week, Doug and Dai discuss what people get up to in autonomous vehicles, internet-era ways of working, Facebook-designed school curricula, open source culture, podcasts, information environments, and more!

I enjoyed the discussion of ‘news’. Personally, I draw upon a diet made up of aggregations, newsletters, podcasts and feeds. I have gotten to a place where I initially sift through titles and summaries to work out what is out interest and either read them or send to Pocket to read/listen or save to Huffduffer before saving them. I touched upon my filters here and my workflows here.

I wanted to clarify a comment made in response to my post. If the perception is that I sit all day at my desk reading the web, then it is wrong. I did spend time curating resources associated with Google, however I have moved departments and Google is no longer at the core of my work. Although I dip in now and then to my feed, the majority of my curation occurs out of hours on the train ride home or after the children have finally gone to bed. Rightly or wrongly, this is what I choose to spend my time with. I have little interest in gaming or watching television. I would argue that my current work does not necessarily allow the time, but rather the cognitive space to explore divergent ideas.

In regards to my newsletter, thank you for the feedback. Some food for thought moving into the new year.
