Michael Sampson - Currents

You can’t state the conditions as above, unless there is a new flight mode from the device vendors that disables cellular and WiFi but still allows Bluetooth. Instead flyers will have to turn off cellular and WiFi separately, keeping Bluetooth on. This is not the activation of flight mode.

Michael Sampson - Currents

We had some teething problems over the days, mostly due to poor WiFi in the hotel, but on the whole it did actually work. The hotel didn’t have a swimming pool, but Active Sports Club Union Square was a 10-minute walk up the road. The facilities at Active Sports Club Union Square were top rate, and I’ll be back whenever I’m in town. Last month I flew to San Francisco for a week of meetings.

Joe supports this activity but wonders if in a “ era when markets and workplaces are conversations, every manager should be a chief listening officer.” Regardless of the title, there is strong listening component to any social media activities and those responsible for them need to monitor what is being said about their companies to understand the context and issues prior to starting social media activities.

#Movistar Killed the Web Star


Yes, I do, but that’s not been very helpful, either, as I currently have got a 6GB quota allowance per month that, given the kind of work I do, I pretty much basically burn it all out in about 2 to 3 days and, once again, here I am, back to stealing friends’ wifi connections at their own homes.

My recommendations here are for areas that need to be addressed at national level, rather than left to luck, so should be supported through central government policy or activity, or partnership/endorsement. Central government has been active in terms of Open Data and Open Government, but has yet to show the same level of appreciation or support for the benefits of Open Education.

For me, the three most significant features of the current social landscape within post-industrial countries is the increase in connectivity, the mainstreaming of collaborative online practices and the rise of real time and location based activity. While we have cheap or free network access in the UK through local libraries, UK online Centres, schools, public wifi provision and internet cafes, personal device ownership and any time access are still salient points.
