Invited Tutorial On Collective Intelligence
Two part presentation on collective intelligence (part one, part two). The downloads are large PDF files (sorry about that) but the content is a broad historical and contemporary overview of the concept of collective intelligence. I (Stephen) don't agree with everything (especially many of the definitions) but feel these slides are well worth a review, even if only for pointers to primary material.

Analyzing the Obvious
I've (George) felt a bit disconnected from CCK08 this week. I've been traveling and internet connections have been hit and miss. My current connection speed reminds me of days of 56K (and slower). I have had opportunities to meet many participants in the course (most who say they are following but are too busy to participate as much as they would like. No need to apologize for lurking!). Even though the online medium has many opportunities, face-to-face contact still adds to the sense of connectedness. The link above is to the video recording of a presentation I delivered in Mooloolaba. The slides are here George Siemens, , November 7, 2008 [Link] [Tags: none] [Comment]

Week 9 Stacks
Nice reflection of CCK08 activities from last week and the first half of this week. A thoughtful review of (and integration) power discussions, personal experiences, and seeing CCK08 concepts in unusual places. Keith Lyons, , November 7, 2008 [Link] [Tags: none] [Comment]
