Not just technology
  It’s structural
It is cheaper to organize

  25. 25. Why?
  26. 26. Change: more connections
  27. 27. Change: more connections • Internet makes the world smaller. People are more connected, and have more connections • Maintaining connections is time consuming. New ways to support that emerge. • People have more diverse social networks and environments.
  28. 28. Change: higher speed
  29. 29. Change: higher speed • More connections mean more exchanges, higher dynamis. This increases speed of change. • More situations where immediate response is needed. • Need for more conscious choice what actions are effective.
  30. 30. Change: information abundance
  31. 31. Change: information abundance • Controlling / evaluating ‘all’ information is impossible. We are immersed in information, like a landscape. • New strategies emerge to deal with the information volume. New applications are built on top of this abundance. • You make sense of the information that reaches you. New information skills. (*) Social networks as information filter. You actively share info about yourself to be visible in the network. * information literacy competency standards (door the US Association for College and Research Libraries)
  32. 32. Change Quantitative source • More connections • More speed • More information Qualitative answers: • Active personal role (sense making, producing) • Other information skills (information literacy, multitasking/fast switching) • Different tools and work forms (Web 2.0, Open Space)
  33. 33. Back to my working day
  34. 34. Three ways of looking at this day • The work I do • The information skills I use • The tools I use Correspond to three qualitative answers • Pro-active role, own scope of influence • Networked information skills • Social media tools
  35. 35. Again: Why?
  36. 36. Cost of sharing: 0 Cost of publishing: 0 Cost of group forming: 0
  37. 37. Not just technology It’s structural
  38. 38. It is cheaper to organize your own event ..... than to find one that fits Examples: barcamp.org, reboot.dk
  39. 39. It is cheaper to start your own political movement than to find one that fits
