Yes & No. You definitely won't find this "Dyseducational Road Movie" in any Driver's Ed course around town. I have to say that it is pretty hilarious. [Meerkat: An Open Wire Service]

Thumbs up.

Communications efficiency.

Time spent. 

20 phone calls:  A day (including voice mail tag).

200 e-mails:  3-4 hours (relevant e-mails only, including inefficient repetitive replies due to a lack of viewable archiving).

50 weblogs with 10 posts a day (500 entries):    20 minutes to scan.  20 minutes to post responses.

Finding information. 

Phone calls:  Limited to voice mail inbox.  No record of previous conversations.  Limited to personal interactions. 

E-mail:  Limited to personal e-mail only.  No public archive.  Most e-mail tools have horribly slow search features. 

Weblogs (K-Logs):  Internet search (Google on the Web or Intranet) extremely fast.  Leverages the contributions of the entire corporation.

Departing employees. 

Phone calls:  Lost.

E-mail:  Lost.

Weblogs:  Archived for posterity. 

I think what we are developing here is an efficiency hierarchy of communication.  For sharing knowledge with a large group of constantly shifting individuals; weblogs win hands down.  For introductions (invitations to further interaction) and ongoing interactions with specific individuals, e-mail works great.  For immediate resolution of a complicated situation, use the phone.

Will my ibook, Running Mac OSX Shame my Linux laptop. While at the O'Reilly Emerging Technology Conference I fell in love with the ibook. I felt slightly ashamed. I've been telling everyone to that Linux runs great on my laptop & that should try it too. I tried to suppress my desire for the ibook. I lost. [Meerkat: An Open Wire Service]

Mine should arrive today. I ordered it on my last day of the conference. I'm going to delve into its mysterious ways of running FreeBSD (Darwin & open source) under that slick GUI (I'm not sure that this is open source). If it is the darling that everyone else claims it is & it looks like it is, this will be my new recommendation to people who want to take a first plunge into the open source world. [Steve Mallett on O'Reillynet]

I look forward to his findings.

Socrates. "Regard your good name as the richest jewel you can possibly be possessed of - for credit is like fire; when once you have kindled it you may easily preserve it, but if you once extinguish it, you will find it an arduous task to rekindle it again. The way to gain a good reputation is to endeavor to be what you desire to appear." [Motivational Quotes of the Day]
