  • What a nightmare - argh!!\n\nCan the internet please go away!! Can I turn off my computer. \n
  • There is no single right tool\n\nIndeed, picking up on ecological metaphor - people dwell in habitats ... people use many tools in different situations, better get used to this\nAlso, habitat is some where elements come together to create biodiversity - in this sense it is combination of factors that sustain life - nutrients, precipitation, organisms, etc.... the online world mimics this.... I hope to show you how it is between tools + activities + practices \n\nIf one thing, I’d like to do today - disabuse you of notion that if you build they will come ... learnt this with CommunityCentral \n\nRest of presentation has two parts:\n1. Dig into a couple of examples to show how we can explore the ecological metaphor - far from NZ shores ..... it’s not really about the tool, but set of communication dynamics \n2. Share a framework for matching needs of your network to tools, processes \n\n\n
