Gloria Gery is once again our interpreter and master of ceremonies.
RIchard Saul Wurman gave the keynote this morning. I'll let him speak for himself:
"What is it like to understand what it's like to not understand? The disease of familiarity....
"I sell my desire to learn about things. That journey is what you take people on."
Someone else's joke: I thought my brain was the most important organ in my body and then I thought, hey, look who's telling me that.
Gettting at perspective, Saul tells a Steve Wright joke that "Everything is in walking distance ... if you have enough time."
It's one of the most important things we do, but no one receives training in how to converse.
Saul looks for patterns to help us (him) understand. He's very into maps.
Meta-message: It's not just PCs any more.
M-learning will force people to get their learning house in order: chunks, rapid delivery.
