Here is another in a series of posts that provide access to my favorite tweets that contain links to useful information.    Some of these I did to link to things I found useful and others are RTs that I want to save for the same reason.

Others suggest that I should use this or that tool to make the task of archiving tweets easier. While I am sure that there may be other tools for this job, that would require me to use yet another tool. Now Twitter and TeeetDeck do not seem to be good archiving tools so I use my blog for this as it is a good archiving tool. While there might be a better tool for this archiving, I am happy so far with simply extending my existing tool set.

If there is a metpaphor for learning in the natural environment it may be the network rather than the line: our neural networks forms the basis of memory/knowledge and even the brain itself. There may be a variety of fields within maths, but without a rigourous attitude towards the basic principles, you will never master the subject.

Of course, this also raises many issues, including: people, especially in high-performance cultures, tend to overextend themselves; people tend to pick project that interest them, but that may not add the most value to the organization; and people tend to be social and so will gravitate towards the same projects, thus contributing to project inefficiency.

I love the Economist, but it ran an incredibly weak article today - False Eastern promise whose sub-heading tells us that the ‘craze for teaching Chinese may be a misguided fad’ The craze for teaching Chinese may just be a fad?

Businesses may not want to show a contractor the markup rate they are charging for services to a client. Brokers are very interactive and they may have difficulty finding time to do individual work. For example, regulations in the financial services sector, such as the US's SEC and the UK's FSA as well as other regional financial services authorities, demand that all electronic records -- including communication sent via instant messaging and SMS – be logged and archived.

It may be true that, as an individual, you are either working to support political status quo, or working against it.
