Welcome to my Social Network
It is not for me to say how much networking should be happening with the Open University. I have elected to play a passive role and jump in when things start to happen.
I may use this application just to communicate with my tutor.
The advantage that it has is it is with me whereever I go. I need not own a computer nor be concerned with what sofware my tutor has.
I can write to it using my mobile device and access it from an computer in the world.
I need not care where data lives nor be concerned of its security.
I can control access to who sees what and interface it with my learning material.
It is like having your brain out in the open for anybody to see.....
The great advantages is the clarity of communication and speed.
(But it is radical!)
A very powerful tool...... But is it the right tool ?
The proof will be in the pudding!!!!
There are times in your life when you realise just how humble you are!
Wesley D. Sine (Cornell University), Hitosh Mitsuashi, (University of Tsukuba), David A. Kirsch, (University Of Marlyland) produced a piece of work of some substance which was published in the academy of Management journal, Vol 49, N01, 121-132.
This work 'Revisiting Burns and Staker: Formal Structure and New Venture Performance in Emerging Economic Sectors' it is a study that 'examines the effects of formal structure on the performance of new ventures in the emergent internat sector during the years 1996-2001'.
The convergence of internet technologies that was announced in 1998 is only now begining to show itself on the unsuspecting world. The arrival of Vista, Longhorn and Leopard will have an effect upon emerging economic sectors far greater than the impact of the personal computer back in 1984.
The work of these intellectuals is a fine example of the quality of work which students should aspire to. At my age I can only but admire the depth of knowledge an the hours of work that has gone into such a study My time has passed and I can only imagine what would have been my destiny taken a different path. Given the chance I would not hesitate to emulate theses fine scolars. This work should be inspirational to any child that reads it.
But there again I would not have arrived here understanding what they are talking about.
Read this and admire it: http://eship.cornell.edu/Revisiting_Burns_and_Stalker.pdf
