QOTD: responsibly open and openly responsible


Marin Weller of the Open University has an interesting paragraph in a blog post about his new role as director of the SocialLearn project. He talks about a desire to be open in communicating the progress of the initiative and soliciting input …. which prompts this thought:

… it’s easy to be a blogger when you don’t have much responsibility, but it strikes me that the as your official responsibility increases so the the amount of stuff you can happily blog about decreases proportionally. So, for the sake of the project I may find that I can say less and less about it. But I hope not, and my default position is to be open as we go along. [The Ed Techie: SocialLearn Director]

The decentered library network presence

The library does not have a singular network presence. There may be a main website, but the library also syndicates its presence to other venues (e.g. RSS), has unbundled to social sites (e.g. Facebook), and sources activity in the cloud (e.g. LibGuides).
