Knowledge, Learning, Community
I will be seeing Jay Cross in just a few minutes - we're both on a panel to discuss the future of learning. I imagine the discussion will be very similar to the one described by Cross here through a series of pithy quotes addressing learning in the age of the downturn. There's this quote: "The economy is going to get worse before it gets better. It's a 'phony war' at the moment, like watching a train crash in slow motion. People won't get it until they are hurting." Won't get what? Ah - that's the harder question. I need to write about that at some point, because what we need to learn is that we've reached a number of limits (limits that used to be scoffed at), limits not merely in energy and resources, but limits in corporate and political governance. See also Jay Cross on Informal Learning in Berlin.
