Some significant blogging news: As many readers are aware, I’m an instructor at Red River College in Winnipeg, Manitoba (Canada). Several years ago, in my blogging enthusiasm, I tried to initiate a culture of blogging to encourage knowledge sharing. It failed (in the sense that I couldn’t convince anyone to start blogging). Recently, RRC hired a new President – Jeff Zabudsky. I’m pleased that he has taken up blogging as a means of communicating with college staff: his blog, the RSS feed. I think it’s an excellent way of compressing organizational knowledge flow (and adding a backflow dimension). Thankfully, openness is becoming a more common occurrence in business and society. I believe the defining trait of our generation is openness…not information/knowledge expansion.
I’m not aware of any other president of a large academic institution (RRC has 32,000 enrolments) who is blogging – are you? I’ve opened comments…please leave information on any academic leaders who you know of that blog.
