@selfleaners: How I use Twitter
- Hi Pamela, Franz and all, I wrote this for another list. I'm
@selflearners on Twitter. Andrius
I'm just starting to use Twitter and have a lot to learn. I'm finding
it very useful.
This week I engaged @DaveGray who's a perfect example of an innovator
I'd like to work for or be supported by to create my catalog of "ways of
figuring things out".
On Twitter, I:
* learned of his free web seminar on "Gamestorming"
* showed him my notes, which he liked and retweeted
* then showed him my list of their 80+ games with my summaries of their
"object of play"
* he liked that, called it a Gamestorming cheat sheet, which had been
requested in London, and retweeted
* then I made a visual diagram and theory of how the games fit together
* he retweeted that "Awesome!" and "Brilliant!" and asked me to blog it
at the Gamestorming site, and here it is:
* I also got to know Sunni Brown and others
Now I can build bridges from my Gamestorming work to other
methodologies, such as John Caswell's http://www.grouppartners.net or
Dave Snowden http://www.cognitive-edge.com or others you may think of.
Hopefully, I can get paid as a "social hacker" as my lab did for Leon
Benjamin and the Mornflake Video Contest:
I "follow" people who speak to "ways of figuring things out", which is
to say, have posts that I would retweet for that. I don't follow those
who write about their day, so instead I keep lists:
* "keep in heart" for people I've met and know
* "keep in mind" for people who I met through Twitter and would like to
remember at some point
* "innovators" for people who might fund my work or find somebody who would
The lists are useful, I think. I'm learning.
I really appreciate how Twitter is different than Facebook, not a walled
garden, open and, for practical purposes, because of the brevity and
culture, Public Domain. In 140 characters you don't have room to fiddle
