We have arrived at a special moment in history. Learning, business, and networks are rapidly converging. You and I have a shot at making the earth a markedly better place to live.


In my remaining time on the planet, maybe a decade, I feel compelled to do what I can to help people learn better. I am passionate about this because I feel that just about all of us can become more effective and fuilfilled in our work and happier in in our lives.


All aboard! Professionals are missing the learning Cluetrain. I hope to accelerate their appreciation of informal learning, the power of positive networks, and the simplicity of the web. As of yesterday, everything on this site is covered under a Creative Commons licenses. Every lesson, link, video, case, white paper, job aid and essay are free for you to use. Like the Whole Earth Catalog, I seek to provide access to tools, mainly mind tools.


This site is for us. You and me and anyone who cares to join us. It's a place to watch or join a debate. Grab some advice -- or give some. This is a gift economy site, free because it is a network, and that in itself creates value. Networks of ideas are perpetual-motion machines. The benefits of participation grow exponentially.


This site is and will always be in beta. No apologies for that. The world is stil in beta.





We are exploring the intersection of unconferences and learning with Social Media Club. 


Writing on the Walls Retreat


This is the transformational business skill described in Informal Learning. You’ll come away with the ability to make drawings that inspire groups and clarify new gameplans. My attendance proves that you need no artistic skills to do this. Next session is January 19-20 in Bodega Bay, about an hour up the coast from San Francisco.



Check out Xplane's new site. Look at the projects page; it's a lesson on process graphics in itself.
