Online Educa

I arrived in Berlin this morning for Online Educa. I’m looking forward to connecting with individuals I know primarily by their online identity. I’ haven’t been very active in social networking sites (I have the standard Orkut, Linked In, whatever else, accounts – but don’t use them as well as I could). I have managed to form a loosely cobbled social network through bloggers I follow. It is not ideal (I regularly get criticized for not allowing comments on elearnspace – a fact I try and excuse due to overwhelming spam when I have them open…I don’t have that issue on connectivism or Knowing Knowlege – where I do allow comments), but it is a network structure I have control over…and for my purposes, it’s as effective as any structured tool.
