Reading this post made me wonder what the foundations of 'lean learning' would be (no doubt soome will 'invent' it; it's easy enough to follow the template set out in this article). The three foundations are; user experience design; design thinking; and agile software development. It reflects a focus on outcomes, not preroduct, and a development method based on conversation and collaboration rather than planning and documentation. "Lean UX values making over analysis. There is more value in creating the first version of an idea than spending half a day debating its merits in a conference room."
Doc Searls is quite right to complain about this article in Wired ostensibly about the history of podcasting. It fails, as he notes, to mention Adam Curry aand Dave Winer, and seems to get the relation between "podcast" and "RSS feed" backwards - a podcast is an RSS feed (one that contains references to MP3s as enclosurfes), so it doesn't make sense to talk about "the first mainstream podcast to have an RSS feed". My own contribution, 2003's Ed Radio, has even been excised from the Wikipedia page, but I've long since gotten used to that. I am enjoying the renaissance of podcasting, but wish professional magazine writers would preserve some semblance of accuracy in reporting.
This is a short set of five reasons why regular blogging is a good professional practice. I can attest to them. When I'm blogging I'm at my best - it forces me to keep current and focus my thoughts. I'm less concerned about cultivating community than Wheeler mostly because I want people to create and join their own communities.
