Homeschooling over time

Mathemagenic

I keep on thinking how needs of a homeschooling family change over time. Finding people, who made the choice, and figuring out how to fit it in in the own circumstances. Once the choice is made the need for acceptance and like-minded people becomes very strong: at the beginning the stress from explaining and defending “deviation from the norm” is very high and it helps a lot to be with people who share your views. Curious to see what it brings.

Charmed Particles

Because real community ROI can be hard to measure (so we use proxies for it like cost-per-impression comparisons with advertising, or offsets for physical event costs), we often tend to measure the 'health' of our communities by the level of activity. But for myself, I've also been obsessed with 'quality' as a community metric; both in terms of how 'upward-norming' the community is, and how well the community fulfills the intent of the community sponsor.

Reflections on the Social Business Forum 2012 - Milan

Governance in a Networked World

The growth in attendance year by year is testimony to the growth of the ’Social Business’ towards the mainstream. But as many of the speakers indicated, there is still a way to go to be considered ‘mainstream’. The ‘Social Business’ is the 3 rd major ‘wave’ that I have been closely attached to during my working life. Previously I joined the charge to bring Artificial Intelligence into the mainstream in the 1980s and Knowledge Management in the 1990s.

ASK: 9 Tips for Inspired (and Inspiring) Text Communication

Community Guy

In face-to-face communication, you have three forms of communication taking place at once: words (verbal), voice (vocal), and body (nonverbal). In fact, a study published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology showed that “people overestimate both their ability to convey their intended tone when they send an e-mail, as well as their ability to correctly interpret the tone of messages others send to them.”. How could I eliminate those issues in the future?
