I recently tweeted an observation of David Weinberger's on how our language has shifted:
You forgot the new phrase -- that reveals who is a newbie to SNA -- "social networkING analysis" ;-)
Patti, just found this blogbyte and want to thank you for taking the time to provide such well-crafted and researched piece on how our human language is changing due to social media influence and it continues to evolve. I appreciate the glossary, embedded links for further resourcing, and the clarity you put forth.
I agree with your observation of David Weinberger's comment about the entire shift has to do with the word, "social."
I remember seeing a recent tweet (either from @charlestlee or @guykawasaki that reminded all of us to retain "social" in "social media." I just finished viewing on YouTube, Sir Kenneth Robinson, "Do Schools Destroy Creativity?," where he expresses his concerns relating to our current static model for education which he believes, stifles creativity. I agree with his comments how social media is indeed changing how people are (and should be), learning, and the need for each of us to rethink old-school models for communicating, interacting, and learning.The app here should be for traditional academia, business corporate training programs, and non-profit / benevolent organizations' civic and community educational awareness initiatives.
Again, the point is: "social"...node-to-node...collaborative...aggregated."
Patti, I'll share with my Twitter followers, this excellent commenting you've created. Very intriguing. I just added you @panklam, to my thought leaders to follow.
Hi PattyPost a Comment
Great post - I found it very interesting! And thank you too for including my work in your list, am honored to have made it :)
I'd actually never heard of Clay Shirky's book either, which sounds fascinating - so I'll prob be running out to get and read as soon as possible to see how our ideas connect - thank you again!
All the best
