Day 3 of the online facilitation conference being run by IDeA, http://www.communities.idea.gov.uk/c/10030/blog/blog-display.do?backlink=ref&… and I’m on this afternoon 2pm – 4pm doing a ‘Hot Seat’ on “The Knowledge Hub”, the next generaton community and collaboration platform that I’m working on.

I was looking back at the online conversations from the previous 2 days and was really impressed by the high levels of activity, and some great insights from the facilitation ‘experts’ on how they’ve developed successful CoPs. I particularly liked the quote from Martin Stein (Workforce Matters CoP) in that facilitation is a bit like parenting and that “CoPs have a life cycle which starts with intensive care but ends with autonomy”.

My only worry for the Hot Seat session is that I’m here by myself and not sure if I’ll be able to keep up with the questions. But then again I might not get any….I’ll wait with some trepidation!

I’m a life-long learner with an insatiable curiosity about life. I love travel, good food, and good company. I’m happy to share what I know with others….even the interesting stuff! My outlook on life is pretty well captured in this quote from a book about the legend of King Arthur: “The best thing for being sad,” replied Merlin, beginning to puff and blow, “is to learn something. That’s the only thing that never fails. You may grow old and trembling in your anatomies, you may lie awake at night listening to the disorder of your veins, you may miss your only love, you may see the world about you devastated by evil lunatics, or know your honour trampled in the sewers of baser minds. There is only one thing for it then — to learn. Learn why the world wags and what wags it. That is the only thing which the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting. Learning is the only thing for you. Look what a lot of things there are to learn.” ― T.H. White, The Once and Future King So much to learn, so little time!
