No time for RSS and stuff like that

They understand the "what," but the "why" escapes them. That's a common common reaction John Wagner gets when he describes content creation or social media. "Which leads me to this conclusion: Most people just don't care about this stuff. . . . most people struggle so much just to complete their work day after day that they can't fathom taking the time to read newsfeeds." He doesn't call them blogs any more "because corporate people run out of the room screaming when you use that word."

    Paul:

    Thanks for the link … I’d be interested in hearing from educators on this issue. Are people in education adopting newsreaders and RSS?

    Hi John. Yes, there’s quite a bit going on. One good source for this kind of info is Dan Karleen’s blog, Syndication for Higher Education.
