It also masks discussion of the key architectural component needed, the activity stream aggregator, which will help make the credible benefits of activity streams a reality. Why do we need to think about an activity stream aggregator? Two design and architectural issues created a scaling challenge for FriendFeed.

Past incarnations however were perhaps so subtle and housed within a particular use case scenario or application context, that we never really thought about how the model could be leveraged in a very broad and compelling manner. Social network sites ( defined by boyd and Ellison for consumer sites in 2007 and extended by myself (while at Burton Group) to apply to enterprise sites in 2008 ), were instrumental in making follow models more prominent.

Deb Lavoy on Promoting the Purpose Driven Organization and Designing the Collaborative Enterprise

I recently spoke with Deb Lavoy, Director of Product Marketing for Digital and Social Media at OpenText , about enterprise design in the 21 st century.  She began by noting that we are moving from a mechanistic model for organizations to a more human model. Third, there is compounding collaboration which is designed is to “ensure that whatever our endeavor, we are leveraging, to the greatest extent possible, the work that has been done already.”

My experiences of the E-Learning 3.0 MOOC to date

Design of the course. I like the course design and the fact that Stephen Downes ‘walks the talk’ and has been true to his educational philosophy as expounded in his theory of connectivism. Although there is a course site, where information relating to the course is aggregated, participants have been encouraged to engage from their blogs. This fits with his belief that the role of the teacher is to model and demonstrate. First a bit of background.
