I found this 4-minute video at Jane Hart’s site and recommend you watch it.

It is advertising for the Internet Time Alliance but explores many of the most important concepts relating to social media, particularly networked economies. Note the reference to Darwin’s theories and that those who learn to collaborate most effectively, prevail.

Social networks and social learning are changing how we work and grow our knowledge. Networks and trust are critical. It is important that we assist colleagues to participate for the health and relevance of our workplaces.

The presentation is not dynamic but the intellectual understanding of our new times is deep. I particularly liked the use of Marshall McCluhan’s theories in the presentation.

McCluhan's laws of media are useful for reflecting on our networked era
