Portals and KM

David is an applied psychologist and UI designer. First he looked at designers. The registration line at SXSW is a classic example of bad design. This is very different than designers. Now David moved to the complexity curve for design.

Smmooooooth ride - like any of the Lincoln models I’ve been in over the years, this one had a pretty smooth ride. The way the MKS was designed, it doesn’t really work for that. Check out some more photos on Flickr ! A few weeks back, the folks at Ford recently reached out to offer me a test drive of the new Lincoln MKS. I was a bit skeptical at first, considering the history of the Lincoln brand. Namely, I didn’t figure I was quite old enough.

Ed Mitchell: Platform neutral Network and community design and facilitation; event design and facilitation. This is just as true for consulting and designing physical events as it is for birthing new online spaces; think about it - it’s humans we are dealing with here. They opt for a distributed model. If participants don’t like particular bits of your community model, change them; if they find cool things they use without your planning, promote them.

I like to role model reciprocity. Firstly, it models so beautifully how to combine blogging and reflective practice – I think this post is an excellent template for teachers. I know I really value this role modelling for my personal learning.
