Designed for learning

learning – teaching – research – design – technology see how its done

My post on has generated some interesting comments. I guess that’s what an RT from @Tim O’Reilly does.

So how do world-hackers self-orgenise? Ning? FaceBook? Elgg? BaseCamp? PBWiki? yeah, maybe. later. but if you want to get something going quick, cheap and fast – nothing beats the good old mailing list. When it comes to social action, email is still the killer app (I’m getting dangerously close to looking like a Clay Shirky fan site).

One thing I like about that mailing list is that its completly open. All the backstage chatter is out in the open. Radical tranparency. But then, anything less would not be true to form..

  1. Mailing lists, yes, and, crucially, blog comments. The go-to place for vast learnedness. Good to see you in the group, I put a data dump from the report on the front page for those who might follow your link and want something to tool around with, mostly so they don’t see and download the earlier, non-updated version.
