Social reporting using video

After some very - but very basic - basic editing, I'm just now uploading my first social reporting in the form of a video reportage of the 'get to know your KM4Dev community buddies' bingo 2009!

Exploring Social Reporting from KM4Dev 2009

This afternoon KM4Dev community members attending this year's KM4Dev workshop in Brussels will be trying to share a few gems from the various discussions that have been going on in different sessions.

One of the goals - aside from the obvious one of sharing with the broader community of interested people who cannot be physcially at the meeting - is to put people with a lot of experience using social media with those with only a bit of experience to help build capacity as we all… Continue

Some thoughts on #KM4Dev

[cross-posted from my weblog]

It’s nice to be a newcomer – you can go around, say that you are new and don’t know much and ask stupid questions. This is what I have been doing at KM4Dev meeting so far.

It’s always nice and strange to discover a network of people who do work and think on issues close to those of my own, but were pretty invisible from my perspective until now.… Continue

A Farmer’s Diligent Hand

Written by: Amor Grace B. Babaran

A farmer’s hand is his most important instrument. But not all farmers use theirs fully. Alfredo Mariño Segovia is more of an exception.

“Life is difficult before, when the New People’s Army (NPA) invaded our barangay and took over our farm. I have no other choice but to vacate our farm and leave the area temporarily. All I have is faith that someday, God will restore everything and make everything better. I am complete, I have two… Continue

Great presentation on nature and success factors of Enterprise 2.0

This is one of the best presentations on Enterprise 2.0 I've seen so far. It clearly communicates what Web 2.0 is about, why traditional KM approaches as well as poorly rolled-out Enterprise 2.0 fail and what factors need to come together to make it work.
