Where are you on the social media/content creation ladder?

I am working on a presentation for a class on emerging technology in business. My topic is curation – which is something I hold near and dear to my heart with my museum background and that little old library science degree I have on the wall. In digging into curation on the web, I found Forrester’s Social Technographics Profile and thought it was quite interesting as a way to organize how we participate on the web. The levels certainly overlap but I am sure folks fall more into one over another one the majority of the time. I am firmly… Read More »Where are you on the social media/content creation ladder?

Things to watch in 2012

Since I found this last year, I was curious to see what the latest presentation from JWT would bring. From a T-F perspective, these entries caught my eye: BYOD – Bring Your Own Device. I actually have been using this phrase for a while now at my work because we have been experimenting with checking out iPads to faculty and students and my take on the results is that they are truly “personal” computers and don’t share well with others. We need to expect to bring our own devices, customized as we want, to all kinds of locations and get… Read More »Things to watch in 2012

My life in Pummelvision

Thanks to Alan Levine aka CogDog (who I get to meet next week at ITC eLearning 2011!), I have fallen for Pummelvision, which takes the last 2000 photos in our Flickr account (or DailyBooth Dropbox Facebook and Tumblr) and makes them into a movie that is then auto-magically (if you give it they keys) to YouTube or Vimeo. Sweet! As they say, your life flashes before your eyes and I see that I have been some places (or at least I only upload photos of places i have been). Give it a shot if you take shots. I might have… Read More »My life in Pummelvision

Star Wars Flowchart

I guess I just have to keep finding fun things in my life right now so another post with something humorous. What Star Wars job would you have (I turned out to be an Ewok Chief) Star Wars Flowchart I did drill down to the original source, which is an online school site but I wasn’t thrilled about giving them a linkback so I went with the original site I saw.

How do you think?

When I have too much to do and I don’t know where to start, I tend to sit and stare for a while. I have been doing that a lot this week 🙂 I have found myself staring at the bookshelf in my office and I noticed something: many of the books are focused on visual thinking or presentation. Books like Visual Explanations and Envisioning Information by Edward Tufte are among the ones I look at most often. I guess that is not a surprise but I am seeing a rise in the tweetosphere and edusphere about visual thinking and… Read More »How do you think?

Year End/ Decade End Listings and such…

I am a big fan (sucker?) for the end of the year summaries that abound at this time of year. And, I love lists. So, here is a list of lists….

Flowcharts for life choices

I love flowcharts! I always have loved them. I think that is why when I first saw a song chart, it just grabbed my attention like no other infographic had in a while! I just found these flowcharts from Eating the Road blog. They just might help with those life decisions like what cereal to eat or what fast food to choose or what is the truth? What other flowcharts are out there?

NPR crowdsourcing the choice

I am curious to see how it turns out as National Public Radio launches their year long exploration next year of the 50 greatest voices in recorded history. Their voting site is really slick as you pick your top five, give your reasons why and join in the fun. Crowdsourcing..its the way of the future. 50 Great Voices: Help Us Choose : NPR And, on the day that I did my voting, here is the way the cookie crumbled:
