Why now?

I've been a practitioner and advocate of technology-enabled learning for most of my professional life. I used to think of myself as one of the early adopters of new processes and technologies. However, I have been watching the evolution of Web 2.0/E-Learning 2.0 from the sidelines as a spectator.

As a consultant/teacher/trainer, I believe that one can only really understand new approaches and applications by immersing oneself and gaining direct experience.

The immediate impetus for beginning to blog arises from my imminent participation in two open online courses - Learning and Knowledge Analytics, LAK11, and Connectivism and Connected Knowledge, CCK11. I expect that these will both be valuable learning experiences.

I'm looking forward to meeting and interacting with those of you already in online communities.
