Technology, teenagers and books

Jenny Connected

Life can certainly have meaning without books, but books cannot have meaning without life. Most of us probably share a belief that life is greatly enriched by them: life goes into books and books go back into life.” (p. Ripley St. Thomas Academy, Lancaster.

Creative Facilitation – the Book!

Viv Mcwaters

With nothing better to do, I wrote a book. You can download a PDF version of the book here. It’s taken so long to get to this point simply because a book like this can never be finished. The linear format dictated by the book format gave us many sleepless nights.

Not panicking anymore, just trying to accept the fact that we are not going to have a perfectly organised kids books in the house. Books need to be where they are needed – as an inspiration and as a reference material.

Finishing a Book

Michael Sampson - Currents

“ Writing a book is an adventure: to begin with it is a toy. How well I know the truth of Churchill’s comments about writing a book, any book … and for some reason especially this one. In the beginning the new book was a toy, an amusement.

Book instead of blogposts

Joitske Hulsebosch

The reason that I did not find the time to blog is that I have written a book with Sibrenne Wagenaar called 'Leren in tijden van tweets, apps en likes '. Writing this book was almost like sculpting a model (which I did once). In the book I tried to find a place for it and found it.

On Reading Books

Michael Sampson - Currents

Hugh writes about the benefits he experienced from getting back to reading actual books , as opposed to being constantly caught up in digital flows of information. I started to wonder: could training myself to read books again help me manage the digital information stress in the rest of my life? Whether my inability to sustain my focus—at work, home, and on reading books—could be cured by finding ways to once again sustain my focus…on a book.

Update on the New Book

Michael Sampson - Currents

Progress on my new book, Doing Business with IBM Connections: Opportunities for Improving Processes, Driving Results, and Achieving Great Outcomes with IBM Connections , continues. It was an essential chapter to add at that point in the book, and although it's delayed publication a bit, it was necessary to do. It's a good standalone chapter in its own right, but fits very well in the overall structure of the book. My original plan was a book at 304 pages.

Blog>> Book Review: Designing A Successful KM Strategy

Green Chameleon

What I like particularly about this book is the relentless reminder that the raison d’être of a KM strategy is to help our organisation achieve its business objectives. At 17 pages long or about 10% of the book, it goes a long way into a path that some of you may not find relevant.
