@46 and @47
I found this post from 2008 – only five years late in publishing it.
It’s not about being up-to-date
@46 points the calculator to the TV wondering why the channel won’t change.
I can see where I want to be now let alone in a few years in a few years. In the few presentations I have done I often start with the statement:
I don’t want to be up-to-date…….I want to be ahead of up-to-date
For example, I joined Twitter in July last year made two posts and did not know what to do. No one I knew was using it and I was being a Nigel talking to myself. I took me a while to realise it was a blog and that was fine – but a blog with out an audience can only take you so far. In September I made a few more posts and things have really taken off for me now. Although I am not shy there was a point when I had to just say hi to people I did not know online , carefully not invading their space. From this relationships develop and connections are made. What gave me the confidence to do this was an online community of runners which is a grassroot Community of Practice – Cool Running Australia – more on this later
Just a digresion – I have missed the start of another 8:30 movie – see what I mean.
