Planet Workshops

May 20, 2008

(originally posted on the Planet blog) Today we held our first pattern elicitation workshop. Having established a prototype platform and trialled our  case study based process at the Emerge online conference in April we were now ready to start our face to face workshops. We will be running a series of these (and online events) over the next few ...

Reliable technology?

April 25, 2008

Just got booted out of Elluminate 10 mins before the end of a session I was taking part in for the second time this week!   My apologies to Chris and all in the User Engagement Challenge session for that. It seems that my machine's VM fills up after about an hour running Elluminate and then the whole things ...

Planet Community Slot and thoughts about e-presenting

April 23, 2008

Thanks to all who joined us for the Planet community slot and to Yish who initiated it, got the case studies from people and then unfortunately was unable to join us due to family circumstances.  Apart from crashing out completely in the middle and running out of time at the end everything went well in spite of picking things ...

Communication overload

April 05, 2008

I am starting to feel some sympathy for colleagues who say they "don't have time for all this". Involved in three U&I projects, a CETL and a couple of internal projects, I am juggling multiple project blogs, wikis, Google groups/docs/sites, Second Life spaces, slideshare, flickr, del.icio.us groups/networks, YouTube channels, Facebook groups - and now I have been drawn into ...

Second Life...

January 27, 2008

Had some fun the other night exploring the Emerge Second Life area: a really nice space, if a little lonely there on a Friday night! (OK - I am sad - but I had to miss the Second Life sessions in York as I was otherwise committed and my wireless wasn't playing ball so I wanted to see what ...

Introducing Planet - and an invitation

January 25, 2008

Great to meet/see everyone in York and hear about everyone's projects - exciting times ahead I think. A number of people asked for more information about our Pattern Language Network (PLaNet) project and how they could possibly get involved. Our fledgling blog can be found at www.patternlanguagenetwork.org - this will tell you more about the aims of the project ...

Streamline

January 17, 2008

I did a double take when I saw I had posted here yesterday until I remembered that I set up a syndicated feed from our Streamline project blog just before Christmas (now removed as it confuses the authorship and therefore the authenticity of the postings). But for those who have recently joined us I thought I would post a ...

Merging blogs

January 17, 2008

At the beginning of the Streamline project we set up two blogs: this one to report progress and an internal project one for ongoing development. As work has progressed it has become clear that this is an artificial separation. It was increasingly difficult to decide what should go where - at what point work had ...

Unconferenced....

July 11, 2007

Having missed Manchester (well not the place but the important happening there) due to unavoidable commitments here,  and having had a few weeks of being unable to "keep up" with the blog, I am now really floundering here. Is there somewhere where I can catch up ...
