Issue #337


Greetings from Lisbon, where I've been at the Creative Commons Summit. It's been nice and sunny, most of the time ☀️☀️☀️

Here's your weekly dose of Thought Shrapnel goodness. Perhaps consider becoming a supporter? Not only will you get emailed all of these articles as soon as they're published, but you'll be able to comment on them too! And you'll get a warm fuzzy feeling inside knowing that you've supported my work 🤗

Here's the posts that were unlocked this week:

A little Friday randomness

Some links that don't fit in elsewhere that I thought were cool or made me smile!

Educational institutions are at a crossroads of relevance

By aping the power dynamics of the corporate workplace, education is failing learners.

Remote work is a different beast

It's not just 'working from home'. Remote work is qualitatively different.

Culture eats strategy for breakfast

The 'how' of work is just as important as the 'what'.

Things that people think are wrong (but aren't)

A collection of things that go against established wisdom.

Until next week,
