Arthur C Clarke, Kate Middleton’s Wedding Dress, and the #fedwiki, Oh My!

If you’ve been intrigued by my posts regarding the #fedwiki or perhaps seen Twitter hashtagged tweets in your feed and wondered “What the heck?“, this really great keynote address delivered by Mike Caulfield to the Northwest Academic Computing Consortium’s (NWACC) Instructional Technology Roundtable last November lays it out very nicely. (And who can’t resist a keynote where Arthur C. Clarke, GPS, and Kate Middleton’s wedding dress are all three mentioned, and even better, effectively tied together to make a powerful point)?

We’re stuck in an attention economy feedback loop where we react to the reactions of reactions (while fearing further reactions), and then we wonder why we’re stuck with groupthink and ideological gridlock.

We’re bigger than this and we can envision new systems that acknowledge that bigness.

I think you’ll really enjoy this talk: Federated Education: New Directions in Digital Collaboration
