Giving Chocolate Online

Last week I did an Elluminate session for the Knowledge Tree about my article, "Blogs and Community – launching a new paradigm for online community? One of the participants knew my weakness for chocolate, and found a way to "share" it online.

You have to see this wonderful example of "gesture" online by Mike Seyfang, Giving Chocolate Online.

Recording of the "Blogs and Community" presentation can be found here. This will be one of the topics I'll be toting around with me in Australia. Just a week away now!

Thanks, Mike! (view the screencast).

First Workshop: Melbourne VPS CIN

My friend and colleauge Shawn Callahan of Anecdote and I will be offering a workshop on 11 October in Melbourne for the Victoria Public Sector Continuous Improvement Network. We'll be talking about some of the issues around the adoption of new social computing software, from adoption issues to competencies of online interaction. Shawn and I have had a number of very interesting conversations via Skype, so it is going to be fun to take this face to face and public. If you are planning to attend, please post a note here introducing yourself and any questions or issues you think we should raise. This will help our workshop be more interactive and locally relevant!

Details here.

Chocolate in Australia

Many of my Australian friends already know about my dark master, chocolate. They know me as choconancy. So they have been sending me links to chocolate places to visit while in Australia. This one is already driving me crazy with desire.
