L2A Links for March 16th

  • Workplace Learning Professionals Next Job – Management Consultant : eLearning Technology – Tony Karrer pulls together thoughts and responses to the question of what workplace learning will look like in 10 years. I agree that the work will move to "management consultant" (though I would have selected "performance consultant"). But I don't agree there will be continued need for "Enterprise 2.0" and "Knowledge Management". I think those ideas will become as much of an anachronisms as "desktop publishing"or "information technologies" as the tools become as much a part of the way we work as phones, electricity of language. Less and less formalized learning will be needed and the real role of learning professionals will be in process improvement consulting.
  • Newspapers and Thinking the Unthinkable « Clay Shirky – The always enlightening Clay Shirky chimes in with a meandering piece that finally resolves into the very wise observation that we should not be trying to figure out how to save newspapers, we should be trying to figure out how to save journalism.

  • Twitter / FDArecalls – FDA has started using Twitter to announce recalls. A great example of how the Feds are beginning to adopt social media tools!
  • Pew Internet: Generations Online in 2009 – Over half of the adult internet population is between 18 and 44 years old. But larger percentages of older generations are online now than in the past, and they are doing more activities online, according to surveys taken from 2006-2008.
  • Pew Internet: Adults and SNS – The share of adult internet users who have a profile on an online social network site has more than quadrupled in the past four years — from 8% in 2005 to 35% now, according to the Pew Internet & American Life Project's December 2008 tracking survey.
  • The End of Marketing and PR? | Steve Kayser’s Riffs, Tiffs and What Ifs – Steve Kayser puts together a really robust list of examples of how "Web 2.0" is changing the world of marketing. A great case study resource too!

  • Set in Our Ways: Why Change Is So Hard: Scientific American – A great article from Scientific American on the biology/psychology of why people are naturally resistant to change. Interestingly, it claims people are more tolerant of change during their 20s and then again after 60.
  • Pew Internet: Future of the Internet – Pew Internet research releases the results of its survey on the future of the Internet. Much as expected, with the exception of one finding that surprised me: "The transparency of people and organizations will increase, but that will not necessarily yield more personal integrity, social tolerance, or forgiveness." I think we may see more tolerance overall as everyone moves to "wearing a transparent kimono."

  • 750,000 lost jobs? The dodgy digits behind the war on piracy – A very thoughtful and informative piece from Julian Sanchez that tries to get to the real cost of IP piracy. The cost to "the U.S. economy" seems to be considerably overstated. He also discusses the potential boon that piracy plays in the economy through its role in innovation.
  • Analyst: Half of ‘social media campaigns’ will flop | The Social – CNET News – Adam Sarner, an analyst with market research firm Gartner, has projected that over 75 percent of Fortune 1000 companies with Web sites will have undertaken some kind of online social-networking initiative for marketing or customer relations purposes. But, he added in an interview with CNET News, 50 percent of those campaigns will be classified as failures.

  • Getting Web 2.0 right: The hard stuff vs. the harder stuff – Josh Ross shares yet another example of how technology is often the easiest part of the the Enterprise 2.0 Three Legged Stool. It is the other two legs (processes and culture) that require additional attention in order for the implementation to succeed.
  • GigaOM White Paper: The Facts & Fiction of Bandwidth Caps – GigaOM – Om Malik rails against bandwidth caps from Internet providers. This trend is the beginning to the shift of bandwidth as commodity. Soon this will be like all utilities and we will pay per use (just like kilowatt hours or gallons of water). The difference should be choice. I can’t choose my water or electricity provider, but I do have choice for my Internet provider. And the competition should help keep per MB pricing low.
