Tools updates

I realised that I wasn’t going to have the time to both write my own theme that I liked and update the site content, and the ugliness of the part-built theme was putting me off using the site – so I’ve grabbed the new Twenty Seventeen theme, and will run with that… Notwithstanding what I wrote about Breaking the Ubiquity of Stream Mode I pretty much gave up on Smallest Federated Wiki when I realised that Yahoo!

Gripping Twitter gently by the throat

In Breaking the Ubiquity of Stream Mode I wrote that, inspired by “Is Twitter Where Connections Go to Die? – The Unfollowing Experiment”,  I would start taking overt control of my Twitter use.

Breaking the ubiquity of Stream Mode

A blog post by Luis Suarez has served nicely as a catalyst to start crystallizing some thoughts from the last couple of weeks. Discomfort I’ve become increasingly aware of tensions I feel when I think about how I manage my personal sense-making.

Much of what has been presented is familiar, but looking at it again, with specific exercises, has made me look closer.

Personal Knowledge Management – why and what

I’m refocusing my study and practice around Personal Knowledge Management (and taking Harold Jarche’s Personal Knowledge mastery in 40 days course). A few short points on the “why and what” of PKM – this is a placeholder post that I will expand with more links over time. Why is Personal Knowledge Management important? In very simple terms, we all need to earn a living, and in the modern workplace some of the most important facets contributing to that are:
