OMG (as my daughters would say), am I in the week from Hell! Running a Youth Leadership Academy, doing a State strategic plan for how they'll use the stimulus money coming from the Feds and then running an Open Space Forum for practitioners working with individuals with disabilities on issues related to disabilities and employment. And that's THIS week! At any rate, a few things floating around that I'd like to have more time to write/think about:
- 50 Ways to use Social Media Listed by Objective--this is a good list for Enterprise 2.0 that I'd love to do for Learning 2.0.
- Social Strategy Hurdles--Tim Davies put together this wiki to begin collecting ideas on how to overcome the 50 hurdles to social media strategy that he identified in an earlier blog post. When I get time, I'd like to add to it. Maybe you can take a look and add your thoughts?
- Two-Page Guide to Using a Blog--Sue Waters points to Kathleen McGeady's nice little 2-page guide for parents on using the classroom blog she's developed. I'm planning to do something similar for the readers of the blog I'm maintaining for one of my clients. They're having a conference in a few weeks where I plan to pass it out.
- Big Screen E-Readers May Help Save Newspapers--When I read this, all I could think was "Why do we INSIST on trying to save dying models by dressing them up in fancy digital clothes?" Seriously. How much better might we do if we invested time, thought and energy into innovating for where things are going, rather than to where they've been?
- Why Isn't Mainstream Gen Y Buying into the New Web?--I sent this link to my 21 year-old new media majoring daughter over the weekend. She wrote back:
2) people adopting facebook now are old people because young people ALREADY HAVE ONE. and we've had one forever at this point. of course , 5 years after facebook went mainstream, the biggest growth would be by old people
3) linkedin is the laughing stock of millennials. who wants a linkedin? just create a google profile. the fact that this guy doesn't know this shows that he is very out of touch w/ gen Y.
