I wrote here recently about SKIL2 – the mad challenge I seem to have manifested/attracted/created for myself.
My lolling self is horrified.
My curious, passionate & low boredom threshold self is delighted.
I spent some time over the last few days working on both the design and content of the SKIL2 social network. It’s looking good and I’m finding it a very useful place to note all the work I’m doing on the project.
Because it’s a social network I can make it interactive and collaborative. I started a few forum discussions on topics I’m researching. At the moment it’s more like a monologue than a dialogue – but that’s fine. It’s helping me think through stuff.
Today, on the social network, I posted a skil2-info-pack I’ve created for SKIL2.
Someone asked me if I felt that maybe I was sharing too much and that someone could ‘steal’ my idea.
Good question. My response?
Good luck to them. SKIL2 is just a map of an idea at the moment and will take many many months – if not years – to develop.
It’s a massively complex project that I have to communicate simply to a lot of people who couldn’t care less – or know a lot – about technology and social media.
And my dear reader – I don’t pretend to be the world’s expert on these areas. But I know more than I did a month ago – and in another month I’ll know more … I’m also not working alone on SKIL2 and will be inviting all sorts of organisations to be partners.
I’m a great believer in the power that comes from sharing information.
Have a wander over to the SKIL2 network. You’re welcome to become a member and just get an rss feed (click on the rss button near the bottom of the network screen) that will let you know when any new content is added.
Wish me luck.
