It's Who You Know

Commentary by Stephen Downes

George Siemens has been doing some interesting work recently on networks. This (mistitled) item links us to Barry Wellman, director of an interesting rpoject called NetLab. You will want to read his connecting Community: On- and Offline. "In the old days, before the 1990s, places were largely connected -- by telephone, cars, planes and railroads. Now with the Internet (and mobile phones), people are connected." There's a lot of other prescient work here. Back to George Siemens, and this link to Chris Anderson on pre- and post filters, a concept I've talked about when discussing e-learning quality. And in another link, Siemens points to What Other People Say May Change What You See, unfortunately now locked in a NY Times archive but replicated here.
