Stephen Downes

Knowledge, Learning, Community

Although I thought the advice was reasonable on the whole, I really didn't like the tone of the piece, which was something like "you had better be learning all the time to keep up," but "we, your management, will mostly not help you at all," and "don't expect any rewards, like promotion or even job security". The post was also filled with a lot of jargon and language from the business press. I can't imagine anyone wanting to work for that author's company. So anyhow, I write a response called A message about learning from the shop floor by way of reply.
