Stumbled upon … lately? It’s basically a Twitter clone built upon the Open Source microblogging software (and the OpenMicroBlogging Protokoll too). See Marshall Kirkpatrick at ReadWrite Web for insights into the potentials, like e.g. “federated microblogging” and distributing load via multiple interoperable installs …

What else? Jay Cross offers us another chapter of Informal Learning: Rediscovering the Natural Pathways That Inspire Innovation and Performance: Chapter 4 on Emergence:

Emergence is the key characteristic of complex systems. It is the process by which simple entities self-organize to form something more complex. As training converges with bottom-up self-organizing systems, network effects, and the empowerment of individuals, it morphs into emergent learning.

More on Jay’s book here.

Via Jon Husband I also learned of Niall Cook‘s new book (“Enterprise 2.0 – How Social Software Will Change The Future of Work”), you may download the introduction and the first chapter.:

Will add this to my pile of “books to read” for my consulting business … after I’ve read all of Chris Brogan’s lifehacks for more efficient, effective blogging.

Speaking of productivity, yes, I know – didn’t blog much about and after reboot, but last week was just plain packed – both work and private life (e.g. bought a new car, photos will follow suite when I finally can lay my hands on it).

  1. Martin,

    Thanks for the mention of my book – look forward to hearing what you think.
