Engineers without Fears

I know nothing about being poor in the Philippines. Tags: jasmin tragas incentive house philippines I have been asked to blog in exchange for money before - but only by people who make Babcock & Brown look like sure fire bet.

When knowledge sharing is the only option

Chris Collison

Coke put a double-size vending machine into a site in the Philippines, which yielded two bottles for the price of one. Sometimes you can’t make it on your own. One of my favourite U2 tracks. Now I can’t stop humming it!

"The Successful Virtual Office in 30 Minutes"

Endless Knots

Ian Lamont’s “ In 30 Minutes ” series demystifies and simplifies topics that leave non-techies scratching their heads for insight, if not plain old comprehension.

Experience – Observation – Action!

Net-Map Toolbox

In a recent leadership training at the World Bank Institute we used Net-Map as a method to understand complex challenges people face in their work, from constitution reform in Fiji to corruption in business licensing in the Philippines. What does this mean?

Technologies of Cooperation

He talked to us about how he had first thought about this in Tokyo 13 years ago when observed how people were using their mobile phones; about the organized demonstrations in the Philippines, Korea, Spain, the Ukraine, Los Angeles, Chile and Egypt.

Social Media in Intl. Dev: Sarah Blackmun

Nancy White

Africa, Latin America, and the Philippines. Next in the series of podcasts (previous podcasts linked below) is Sarah Blackmun of the Pangaea Network. Sarah is another long time online colleague and friend from the late 90’s who also seems to connect with others in my network (especially around her studies at the Fielding Institute where we both have a lot of mutual friends. Sarah brings some different aspects to light about social media in international development.

Developmental evaluation – some thoughts and links to facilitation

Viv Mcwaters

I also found myself delivering evaluation training to scientists in Vietnam, Philippines, and Fiji and even doing some secondary impact evaluations for Oz-Aid. If you look at the top of my blog you’ll see this.

This is all about raising awareness and funds for a microfinance project in the Philippines. Check out the links please. The hippies had left the bus dumped in a ditch when the trust fund money evaporated like sunstroked bong water. The engine was long gone, a generator in waiting. The seats scavenged for a room for living in. You had cut the tyres into shoes while we attacked the frame with tinsnips. You should use every part of the carcass.

Media140 Sydney: Social Media Twitter & Journalism

Laurel Papworth- Social Network Strategy

No mention of the President of the Philippines tweeting during floods or of the Mumbai bombings wiki to help find missing people. I spoke at Media140 Sydney – I want to highlight some of the “arguments&# used against social media by the panels, also focus on Everybody co-creating The Human Narrative and the diminishing role of journalists who take news from one part of the community and deliver it to another part: It’s not YOUR content. It’s our content. Our stories.

More collaboration

John Tropea - Delicious Collaboration

Engineers without Fears Saturday, September 15, 2007 More collaboration James Dellow takes up the conversation about collaboration. James D makes the point that collaboration happens within organisations & that people will use any tools that come to hand. Absolutely agree with this. James goes on to say: This cycle by the way is taking place at an enterprise level, but also at the level of individual workgroups, teams and projects.

Collaboration vs sharing

John Tropea - Delicious Collaboration

Engineers without Fears Sunday, October 14, 2007 Collaboration vs sharing James Robertson talks about collaboration tools as anti-knowledge sharing. If I understand JR correctly, his point is that collaboration tools are great for specific teams. However each team works in its own context and this leads to the creation of silos which prevents cross-organisational leveraging of this material. He also notes that this cannot be solved simply by the implementation of a search tool. I agree with him.
