Book reflections and lists


workflow concept embraces org as a system. Plugs into higher levels. White space and the boxes. Adaptation is a process, not an event.

the disservice of school: get use to someone else in charge of your learning. new dynamic: who's in charge?

how to get them engaged? socially acceptable hunting license. Purpose. Content that is propositional, hypothetical, not presumptuous.

Standards. enable flexibility and decentralization by setting boundaries. efficient. enable focus on local needs. coordinate, not control. Take control by giving control. replace command and control with coordinate and cultivate.

active learning: judge, don't just listen. 99% of talk of learning is really about teaching. "learning" is about jumping through hoop. informal means it's my hoop. what are people learning when they are not learning what we want them to? duguid. skepticism key. pay attention. kevin: no lectures for him.
choose your outcome. toyota. goals (balanced scorecard) vs johnosn (capability)

learning as a change in capacity.
control: love to learn, hate to be taught

self-service learners

individual hacks: what can i learn from this? optimism/seligman, alert/serendipity, map, outside comfort, loose ties.
parking affirmations, math tutor, nursery design, bicycle lesson. mary: never throws away posts. 100000 in aggregator. "I don't do paper."
just ask. cultivate experts. klieiner who's in charge

remix. blind. nothing new.

make = martha stewart for geeks

add FAQ, wiki?

robin: no teacher, no student, guides and coaches

take notes, don't make notes. he never looks back.

flow model of learning: see book

metalearning lab

learning to be. inspire others.


classes, courses, presentations dead.

alumni website: need examples

systems thinking, network expansion

whole body. stress. fear. calm. healthy.

mit open source project

humans are pattern seeking, story-telling animals. Our old stories don't work very well any more. We're sitting around the campfire.

:Confusion is just another term for we haven't found the pattern yet.
putdown by execs. justified

Boxes and Arrows: : What was the trigger for your book?
Steve Krug: Honestly? I wrote it so I could double my consulting rates.
