    Twitter grew five fold and became a major online player, tens of millions of us learned how to live out loud in public. It means developing the skills and practices of a publisher, and taking a platform-based approach to connecting with customers. And it means rethinking some of our “best practices” – including measurement, research, and the agency-client relationship. So what can we learn from the past year as we enter a decade where the real time web will become ubiquitous?

    Here are some of the things I learned via Twitter this past week. Some thoughts: As we learn in digital networks, stock (content) gets smaller, while flow (conversation) gets longer – the challenge becomes how to continously weave the many bits of information and knowledge that pass by us each day. The challenge for educators and organizations is not how to integrate or adopt web technologies but rather how do we teach, learn and work in networks.

    In response to my post a few days ago about EBSCO , Sarah Houghton-Jan just wrote an impassioned post about unethical vendor practices , suggesting that we let our vendors know when we are not happy with what they’re doing. While I do agree that libraries should make their dissatisfaction with specific vendors or vendor practices known to the vendor (and to the public for others to learn from), I don’t know how much of a difference this will make on an individual level.

    [Learning, Practice] Why corporate IT should unchain our office computers. - By Farhad Manjoo - Slate Magazine
    If I sound a bit over-exercised about what seems like an uncontroversial practice, its because I am—for too long, office workers of the world have taken IT restrictions sitting down.
