This exhibition shows the full contract from – if I remember it wel – a Swiss Bank for lending out money to the museum. Behind every page is a light source. In the middle (where my friend is standing) is a window where you see the actual pile of money.

I am by no means ungrateful for all the kind things people say and write to be about 50+ Web 2.0 Ways to Tell a Story. It was a wacky idea that emerged a year ago and has become a regular shtick. People all over (they were ROTFL in Japan) love the Blabberize Talking Alpaca.
This is great… but here comes the whinge.
Where are the examples of what people are making after someone tweets them a link or shows this in a workshop?
On the long scrolling list of 50 Tools I ask (even say “please”) people to share links of what they produce in the discussion tab of that wiki page and I monitor this via its RSS feed– which has been dark for months.
I am really really really really really really really wanting to see the kinds of content educators and students make after trying some of these tools. I would like to add them as links under the tools as many of them are not exactly educational oriented examples, just ones I could locate on the particular tool’s site.
My fear is people focus on the tool part and skip the parts on developing a story idea and finding media— dear readers it is not about 50 or 60 or 932 tools– its about what people can create with them!
Please lend a hand; add something to the discussion tab (no log in needed and you can be anonymous) or add as a comment to this post.
The real incentive is that the 50 Ways will be featured as part of an upcoming EDUCAUSE Review article due out end of October.
Enough of the tools– where are the things people are making with them?
