Rhizomatic learning, definitions and cheating

But Dave has more to say about definitions. Here he says that definitions make him ‘cookie’ (not sure about the spelling here as I haven’t come across this expression before :-)). There is no common definition.

Jenny Connected

As I commented on Frances’ blog – trying to pin things down with definitions, will always be problematic for the very reason that Stephen outlines in his work on Fallacies , where he writes: The following are fallacies of definition: Too Broad (The definition includes items which should not be included).

What is Your Definition of Enterprise 2.0? Here is Mine.

Portals and KM

So stealing from them here is my simple definition of enterprise 2.0. I enjoyed Paula Thornton’s Fast Forward post, E2.0: Unleashing the Potential , especially the comment, “Digital technologies labeled Enterprise 2.0, will not provide 2.0 results if implemented with 1.0 thinking.”.
