The Nag is On! Seeking (again) True Stories of Open Sharing

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

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.
