Portals and KM

Brian Solis recently posted on the results from Technorati’s State of the Blogosphere 2011 survey. Here are some thoughts on the State of the Blogosphere, October, 2006. It is nice to see the blogosphere remain healthy. This survey is something I have followed for a while. Brian begins with a thought I completely agree with as he puts blogs at the top of the social media list. Bloggers were the pioneers in this space and blogs still offer the best to offer a complete thought.

Crowdsourced Funding: How to ask for $75K but get $1.5million

Which will backfire because usually it’s then greeted with a deafening silence in the blogosphere, if not mild disdain. Casey Hopkins asked people to fund his new project to make a better dock for the iPhone. He wanted $75,000 he got $1.5 million. Kickstarter kicks ass.

Because the blogosphere is full of very busy, successful practitioners that are nothing like journalists, we tend to give up on going to them after a short while. I just came up with a new term. To “To Klout Them Up” As in “ to hit them up” or ask for something.

The Soothing Effect of Blogging


It’s hard to believe, even for myself, how the last time I wrote a blog post over here was a bit over two months ago. However, it doesn’t even feel totally awkward, as it used to be in the past, whenever I embarked on a longish blogging hiatus of sorts. Not even embarrassing anymore.

But by this time the conversations in the blogosphere had moved on and so had our thinking, so we ended up submitting a completely new paper, although it does still include reference to learner autonomy. Second, we were quite often writing our paper in response to the changing conversations that were happening in the blogosphere at the time.

International Bloggers Day for Burma

The eyes of the blogosphere are on Burma… will this mean anything? I recommend this site: [link]. Their use of a simple webpage opinion pole about what the international response should be is brilliant, naive or a bit of both. Some of the eyewitness accounts there have been stunning.

Technology: blogging projects

Joitske Hulsebosch

I remembered Beth Kanter had pointed to a wiki from global voices on what makes a successful local blogosphere? reflecting on the fact that countries like Cambodja, Iran and Jordan have a dynamic blogosphere, while others don't. I came across the African mentoring project set up by Ore Somolu from Nigeria. She is inspired by the Young Caucasus Women project in which I was the first mentor, and which seems to move quite well at a good pace.

When Gautam discovered Technorati, it added the ability to find out who was linking to him and what was being discussed in the blogosphere. This begins a series of case studies from people I interviewed in 2005 about their blogging efforts. Now as we move to 2013, I find it interesting to look back at the early days of business blogging. I will only include cases from people who are still blogging now. These cases have not appeared on this blog before.
