These are fundamental, inspirational, prescient, important documents. All free on the web. Amazing!


The Cluetrain Manifesto: The End of Business as Usual. (Full text). Chris Locke, Doc Searles, David Weinberger, Rick Levine. The most important book written in the last half of the 20th century. “The clue train stopped there four times a day for ten years and they never took delivery.” “A powerful global conversation has begun. Through the Internet, people are discovering and inventing new ways to share relevant knowledge with blinding speed. As a direct result, markets are getting smarter—and getting smarter faster than most companies.” Seth Godin: “If you don’t think you need this book to better understand your market, that’s your second mistake!”


Knowing Knowledge. George Siemens. A profound explanation of knowledge in a fast-paced, complex, ever-changing, networked world. This is essence. It’s a new ball game.


The Cathedral and the Bazaar Eric Raymond. Why and how open source works. Also see The Jargon File.


Deschooling Society. Ivan Illich. “Many students, especially those who are poor, intuitively know what the schools do for them. They school them to confuse process and substance. Once these become blurred, a new logic is assumed: the more treatment there is, the better are the results; or, escalation leads to success. The pupil is thereby “schooled” to confuse teaching with learning, grade advancement with education, a diploma with competence, and fluency with the ability to say something new. His imagination is “schooled” to accept service in place of value…. In these essays, I will show that the institutionalization of values leads inevitably to physical pollution, social polarization, and psychological impotence: three dimensions in a process of global degradation and modernized misery.”


What is Web 2.0? Tim O’Reilly. “Web 2.0 doesn’t have a hard boundary, but rather, a gravitational core.”


Seven Principles of Learning, Institute for Research on Learning. “We are all natural lifelong learners. All of us, no exceptions. Learning is a natural part of being human. We all learn what enables us to participate in the communities of practice of which we wish to be a part.”


Learning in the Digital Age by John Seely Brown. “Learning is a remarkably social process. In truth, it occurs not as a response to teaching, but rather as a result of a social framework that fosters learning. To succeed in our struggle to build technology and new media to support learning, we must move far beyond the traditional view of teaching as delivery of information. Although information is a critical part of learning, it’s only one among many forces at work. It’s profoundly misleading and ineffective to separate information, theories, and principles from the activities and situations within which they are used. Knowledge is inextricably situated in the physical and social context of its acquisition and use.”


The Semantic Web by Tim Berners-Lee, James Hendler, and Ora Lassila. Scientific American, 2001. A new form of Web content that is meaningful to computers will unleash a revolution of new possibilities. The Semantic Web is not a separate Web but an extension of the current one, in which information is given well-defined meaning, better enabling computers and people to work in cooperation. The first steps in weaving the Semantic Web into the structure of the existing Web are already under way. In the near future, these developments will usher in significant new functionality as machines become much better able to process and “understand” the data that they merely display at present.

What is informal learning? by Jay Cross. 2006. People acquire the skills they use at work informally — talking, observing others, trial-and-error, and simply working with people in the know. Formal training and workshops account for only 10% to 20% of what people learn at work. Most corporations over-invest in formal training while leaving the more natural, simple ways we learn to chance.

The Wiki and the Blog: Toward a Complex Adaptive Intelligence Community by Calvin Andrus, CLO at the CIA, “The only way to meet the continuously unpredictable challenges ahead of us is to match them with continuously unpredictable changes of our own. We must transform the Intelligence Community into a community that dynamically reinvents itself by continuously learning and adapting as the national security environment changes.”


Storytelling: an old skill in a new context by Dave Snowden (1999). Why knowledge management should come from the bottom up.


How People Learn. John Bransford et alia. 16 bright people pin what’s known about learning in adults and children. Department of Education funding. Lucid, concise, the real deal. Caution: 1998.


Web 2.0 Framework, Ross Dawson & eLearning 2.0, Stephen Downes


The Future of Online Learning: Ten Years On (2008), Stephen Downes


The Future of Online Learning (1998), Stephen Downes


Jane Hart’s Social Learning Handbook


Dialogue: A Proposal by David Bohm, Donald Factor, and Peter Garrett describes a method of inquiry where participants leave their egos at the door. This is subtle but powerful. Build on one another’s thinking. Deeply.
