February 16, 2013Hi Andy
Thanks for offering to help me check out the details of how my emails get published on Telegram - and if it will really be as painless as Posterous
February 16, 2013Hi Andy.
Thanks for moving me, and my posterous archive, over to Telegram. From now on this is where I'll post letters that I've written to various people, and other bits and pieces that I want to have to hand in a public space.
So.. here goes with my first one.

October 14, 2012This year bloggers world wide have been invited to celebrate people working together. This is my celebratory appreciation of some of the people and projects I've been working with since last blog action day.
First I'll introduce Nikki Fishman and a project we're doing close to home called Collage-network.
October 13, 2012Yesterday I posted about "Day in the life of an online learning-and-collaboration explorer" http://dadamac.posterous.com/day-in-the-life-of-an-online-learning-and-col
It included a google chat with my friend Fola - http://www.dadamac.net/network/folabi-sunday-folarin - which was more than a single posterous post could handle
Here is the end of the chat and brief observations about "my kind" of online learning.

I often describe myself as an online learner - but I am often misunderstood because many people think of online learning as formal courses. Much of my online learning comes from my online friends, with their many different areas of knowledge. Today started in Mexico with Liam and a theoretical discussion (based on experience). It finished in Nigeria with Fola kindly explaining to me the practical details of online payment of school fees and touched on much else in between. From my point of view - a good day.
(Mention of Liam and others was in the previous, truncated post - http://dadamac.posterous.com/day-in-the-life-of-an-online-learning-and-col )

My friend Liam describes me as an "online learning-and-collaboration explorer". I think he's right.
So if that's what I am - what does it involve? And does it have any value? Of course it all depends on how you define value. I believe in the value of learning by doing, gaining information by sharing information, gaining new knowledge by exploring ideas with others, and having high trust relationships. This means that I value the incidental contacts I had during the day with various people, mostly friends, who all either teach me things or we collaborate (sometimes of often) or a mixture of both.
October 9, 2012Dark Mountain book launch events – this time in Brighton - on Saturday 27th October. See below.
I'm posting this information to posterous and sharing it with the People Who Share - who are based in Brighton. I hope they'll share it further.
