I keep a tumblr of enviable stuff, here are a couple of recent quotes I’ve stashed there:


Openness helps here. Open technologies allow users to innovate without permission. Open licensing is just part of that open technology jigsaw; open standards another; open access and accessibility a third. Open interfaces accessed sideways. And so on.

Which give me an excuse to link to OPEN SCOTLAND – Promoting the development and adoption of open education policies and practices in Scotland. #openscot and http://declaration.openscot.net/. It looks like thinkgs migt be opening up here.

How to do new things

The best way to learn something is to start doing it. Don’t wait for full knowledge to come to you. Often it won’t. Just pretend you know what you’re doing, and hit the walls. That helps define the shape of the problem. Make it small enough that you can start solving it right now, without waiting. Each part of the problem is smaller than the whole thing. And tell yourself you can do it, because you can.
