An Open Letter to Hoteliers Worldwide

Evolving Web

Wifi : If I can get a day’s worth of wifi free, simply for the price of a coffee, why then do you insist on charging me to use your wifi after I’ve already paid you hundreds or even thousands of dollars? Further, why is the wifi disproportionately expensive to the rest of the room? I would venture a guess that an increasing number of guests use wifi more than than they turn on the television (and certainly more than use the pool). Hoteliers: Please.

What can you learn from a chatbot?

Joitske Hulsebosch

I have my office on the first floor of our house and therefore I use a Wifi homeplug to strengthen the WiFi signal from the groundfloor. Other examples of chat bots are: The invisible boyfriend. The development of chat bots for learning purposes is still in its infancy stage.

Graphic Facilitation Workshop from #sfrome

Sophie Alvarez of CIAT has a great post on the communities of practice clinic that Etienne Wenger and I did together and Pier Andre Pirani is doing a post on the “chat show” we did on the application of social media in international development.

Community as lens

Learning Alliances

It seems to me that good wifi connectivity enables posses and networks to form at big conferences, bringing all kinds of social and technical opportunities into focus. I noticed Shirley gave up tweeting about the plenary talk because the wifi crashed.

The dangers of social media for youth

Joitske Hulsebosch

And there was no wifi so live-blogging was not even an option. Main use is YouTube (videos), MSN messenger (chat), browsing (surfing), social media (contacts and new contacts), Word (word processing) and games (gaming) 87% had a bad experience through the internet.

How Do I Make Sense of Social Networking Tools


I use it for everything, as a personal knowledge sharing hub , as my operating system , and a whole lot more than just chat.

UC And ROI: IBM's Truth And Fiction Example

Collaborative Thinking

By using IM or voice chatting, we have found that users can, on average, eliminate 5 telephone calls per day. Thumbs-Up: It's important to note here the different between channel switching (from telephone to IM or VoIP chat) vs. time-saved by reducing phone calls. But the more discretionary the work, there a greater chance that the person will just chat with a co-worker, go grab a coffee, etc.

Conference networking at Online Information 2008: report and lessons learned

Platform Neutral

Each of the first two was made possible - or certainly easier - by having a wifi connection. Approaching and chatting to people is critical for success. Personalities: there was much discussion about the relationship between levels of ‘chatting’ and type of topic.

I collaborate, e-collaborate, we collaborate - Untitled Article

I collaborate, e-collaborate, we collaborate

We were each positioned behind a laptop with wifi access, browser open and she suggested we open a shared "gably", which allows you to create a shared chat interface, on the fly, based on simply filling in a similar domain name. Take any domain name and insert before it and voila, you can chat with anyone else who follows the same steps. It is also a handy tool when giving feedback on a website as you both inherently have the same webpage and chat window open.

How to: 5 Steps for hosting a successful online event


During the event we took full advantage of the Summit's virtual presence to post session notes, encourage ongoing collaboration and discussion with discussion boards, blog entries, and live chat, and to feature conference media such as podcasts, video montages, and photos. Some users are more savvy with Twitter and wikis, while others need help just accessing the conference wifi network.

After a brief chat we identified some flickr images and blog posts that might be useful, I explained that he did not need to ask my permission to use them because by licensing them creative commons:attribution I had already granted permission in advance - all he need do is give me attribution. The best laid plans of man and mice… Turns out that even the network administrators could not help me configure my nokia N80 or my iPod touch to connect via the wifi in the auditorium.
