Luis Suarez pointed to an article by Dennis Stevenson on his first blush with Twitter, The World is Smaller than You Think. I think Dennis' observations are in line with whymany people get so excited about social media.
Friday morning, I joined a half dozen other people at the monthly Boston KM Forum breakfast meeting in Waltham. The topic, loosely, was information literacy.
A totally random find from my friend Camille. Give this tool a list of interests (like in one of your millions of online profiles), and it generates a lovely collage.
