One conclusion from Network Learning is that most of the stuff I work on is definitely mode 2 type knowledge. Not sure I understand this fully but I am beginning to get an idea of how 'mode 1' and 'mode 2' are used by academics. There is still a strong pressure to go for 'research' as mode 1 disciplines, however recent. So 'learning technologists' want to move into educational theory and away from users. Maybe I imagined this but that's how it seems. More next week.

Thinking about Seybold, this will be completely different. The trade show element is part of the base. 'e-learning' is another word for the web. The environment has always depended on the stream of claim,s from companies about new products, even when most people believe they are not yet working.
