    [2009] Can social media bring about real change?
    Nicola Avery commented on my last post on changing the structure: How do you bring everyone together though - we do it in learning through various networks and initiatives but don’t know with this - who would be interested, how to connect them up ? So is it possible to use “frivolous&# social media for real change?

    [2009] The Airport Waiting Area Syndrome Goes Global with Twitter
    There was a lot of discussion of twitter at the FastForward 09 conference. Sitting in several airport waiting rooms on my return to Boston, I was reminded of when I worked for a large consulting firm and I would go to work on airplanes. On a number of assignments I would go to a large firm located in small places. Now I am not against Twitter.

    [2009] How to segue to a story
    When I teach storytelling techniques I'm often asked, "So how do I insert my story into the conversation?" The funny thing is we are all doing it all the time. We are mostly telling each other stories about what happened or what will happen. It's only when we become self-conscious of our storytelling efforts that we freeze and it feels abnormal.

    Written by Darrell Etherington. As web workers we often like to think of ourselves as being on the cutting edge of technology. Our clients often depend on us to be just that.
