While I have a Twitter account, I don’t tweet – I just don’t find that medium to be to my liking and I rarely find anything useful there. So I’ll share my reflections on the two articles here…I truly resonated with Cormier’s blog post – the reference to plants through the mycelium has excellent symbolism for any network and suggests a sharing that is not defined by any boundaries. I could have taken this towards the Internet analogy as well with bots and AI automatically collecting data for me. Dan’s presentation was helpful as well as I was trying to picture what my picture could be. What I’ve really taken away from this is that I have control to build the network that will add the most value to my life (hence, no Twitter). Building my PLN is why I decided to pursue the ONID program. Recognizing my gaps in knowledge and perspective is also an opportunity to expand my boundaries such as with the anti-racism blog post I shared earlier.
