Leadership – Education – Technology – Other Interesting Stuff

What’s out there in LETOIS…

Did you read Malcolm Gladwells’ Tipping Point? Remember the section about the “Law of the Few” and how “things” spread? Gladwell talks about 3 types of people – salesmen, those who persuade us; connectors, those who link us up; and mavens, the information specialists. When I read this piece, it was such a relief to know that my behaviors over the years have been named – connector and maven.

It probably started when I was in my early 20s – cutting articles out of the newspaper to share, ripping pages from magazines to refer to later, clipping cartoons to include in lessons, mailing (envelope and stamp – pre-WWW and home computers) articles and pictures to friends with short notes. This behavior carried over to the dawn of the Internet and email. Years ago I started an education blog (then again more recently one on eye issues). Wikis from me exist, along with a Twitter account, Facebook page, Delicious tags, Pinterest boards, Goodreads bookshelves and a Linkedin profile. Some of these are obviously more “current” than others (time!). And it really helps when I don’t lose track of all my URLs, logins and passwords (and I even tried Last Pass).

As a true connector and maven, I feel a need for a mechanism to share all the interesting information (and stuff) that I encounter. This blog will focus on 4 topics – Leadership, Education, Technology and Other Interesting Stuff. Knowing that really doesn’t sound focused, you will just have to take my word for it.

We learn more by … collaborating, exploring, discovering, expanding, growing… Your comments, questions, additions are eagerly anticipated. Please help us all learn more about What’s out there in LETOIS!

 Welcome!
