Share 2012 in Atlanta, Georgia

Michael Sampson - Currents

The Eventful Group is expanding the footprint of its Share Conference - the SharePoint Conference for Business Users , with new conferences in South Africa (February) and Atlanta (April) in 2012. I won't make the South Africa conference in 2012, but I'm working toward being at Share 2012 in Atlanta. More details to come. The original event in Sydney last November is happening again in two weeks, and I'll be there to deliver a post-conference workshop on user adoption for SharePoint.

ICT-use surveys in Georgia and Estonia

Taming the spaces

Tiger Leap and Deer Leap are two organizations that coordinate ICT education in partnering countries - Estonia and Georgia. It seems there is an explosion of collaborative project-based learning in Georgia. As an additional task i have done this year some surveys and book-writing related to ICT teaching. Last month we handed over the survey (in estonian) how teachers use ICT as an integrated topic in their lessons. This can be viewed from: [link].

Leadership in Three Easy Steps

Web Social Architecture

Yes, Athens Greece , not Athens Georgia. I was on the road a lot in the early and late parts of 2008, which is fortunately not something I have to do a lot most of the time. I am not a fan of business travel. But there's a single note I took during all those road days that sticks with me still. I'd almost say it made it worthwhile. But, let's get real. I missed my kids.)

Remembering Ray Charles

Portals and KM

We used to sing Ray Charles songs, like “ Georgia of My Mind ,” on the bus and his dance music, like “What’d I Say,” got top play at parties. Earlier, he moved himself into the pop charts, with his “Georgia on My Mind” making number one in 1960. This song became the official state song of Georgia in 1979 and it remains my favorite Ray Charles ballad. Yesterday, I wrote about Elvis so I need to give equal time to Ray today. It has been almost eight years since he passed.

Wonderful Vintage Car and Truck Images at Photology and Abandoned Places from Henk van Rensbergen

Portals and KM

The flowers seem like Man Ray doing a better job on Georgia O’Keefe images. My friend Karen D’Amico , a London artist, sent me the link to Photology. It has wonderful photos of old cars, trucks, boats, other vintage stuff, along with flowers. The photos of vintage stuff remind me a bit of Walker Evans. Anyway they are enjoyable in their own right. Karen also sent me a link to Abandoned Places by Henk van Rensbergen.

Southern Soul Food in Washington DC

Portals and KM

   Georgia Brown’s offer low-country cuisine from Charlestown.  I was recently in Washington DC for the KM World 2010 and Enterprise Search Summit 2010. I still get excited to walk around our capital and enjoyed looking at the buildings and taking in a few museums while there. Growing up in New Orleans I am partial to Southern food so I looked for this offering in DC. Below are my findings. The first three I tried and found excellent.

Technology: I'm a blog mentor for the young Caucasus women project

Joitske Hulsebosch

If I'm correct, all women are from Azerbaijan, Armenia and Georgia. This week I'm a blogmentor for the Young Caucasus women project and posted a blog entry on the topic: who in the world would you like to send an email/letter and why? The women will have to post a blog entry on the same topic and I will try to comment; and they will also be encouraged to comment on the other blogs. I hope the other mentors will also jump in.

These cases have not appeared on this blog before.

My Reflections on the Mobile World Congress

Nancy White

The winner was Urban Planet Mobile from Savannah, Georgia, for their mobile English learning initiative. Over my career I have become a technology "conference veteran" beginning with Comdex in the 80’s. This event grew to over 220,000 attendees and over 20,000 vendors. For several years I was privileged to be a judge for Best of Comdex, so became very familiar with the conference.

Reading Primer: Augmented Reality

Collaborative Thinking

There are a few examples floating around like this one of an augmented reality, zombie-killing game from Georgia Tech , although few are in commercial use yet. A jumpstart to an emerging and fascinating space: Startups looking to make money by enhancing reality | VentureBeat. Augmented reality (AR) technology , which overlays 3-D graphics or information over a live camera feed, isn’t a brand-new idea.

Travel is like magic

Chris Corrigan

Grabbed my bag, jumped on teh Canada Line, stopped long enough at Granville and Georgia Streets for a La Brasserie Chicken Sandwich and then caught the Express bus to Horseshoe Bay. It sometimes boggles my mind, how easy it actually is to cross an entire continent. Yesterday I woke up at 6am in the Beaver Valley, on the shores of Georgian Bay in Ontario where a beautiful crisp spring day greeted me.
