this month, as a part of the new media consortium summer conference (NMC 2004) in vancouver, a group is mounting an impressive demonstration of the capability of the blogosphere to build knowledge and educate.
SmallPiecesLooselyJoined is an effort to use blogs, wikis, RSS feeds and other web content to expand the knowledge and expertise being presented. not only are the organizers using the blogs etal that they are developing, but they’ve asked educational bloggers from around the world to participate in this presentation. i’ve decided to pitch in to experience it real time rather than to wait for the research report to come out.
keep an eye on this and other educational blogs over the next several weeks to see if you seen the blogosphere flex it’s young muscles or not. if you have questions either see the link above or email dave.
