Yes, I am doing this again. It’s been a whole year! On April 16 I am doing True Stories of Open Sharing for the eLearning Consortium of Colorado (eLCC) conference; it is their 25th one, they are just a month younger then the web itself.
That’s pretty amazing. The web. I collect stories of its amazingness.
This is the evolution of what started in 2008 as
Amazing True Stories of Openness for the Open Education Conference. I collect videos of anyone telling a story of how something unexpected, wonderful, connective happen as a direct or indirect result of sharing something on the open web.
All I ask is for a short video, which you upload to YouTube or vimeo, and just send me a link. This is the deposit box http://stories.cogdogblog.com/call-for-stories/.
With great irony, as much as people tweet nice things about the site… it’s really hard to get people to send them to me. Usually I resort to nagging, teasing, or just showing up at their house with a video camera. When I present this, I typically ask for members of the audience to tell em one on the spot (I grab a video with my mobile).
I’m keen to get a new fresh supply, and so here I am begging for stories.
The post "The Nag is On! Seeking (again) True Stories of Open Sharing" was originally squeezed out of the bottom of an old rusted tube of toothpaste at CogDogBlog (http://cogdogblog.com/2014/04/seeking-again-stories/) on April 1, 2014.
