Open Thinkering


Hear me now!

For the last few years, Laura and I have been recording The Tao of WAO, “a podcast about the intersection of technology, society, and internet culture – with a dash of philosophy and art for good measure”. We wrapped up Season 6 just before Christmas which featured a lot of awesome guests and our focus was on different types of learning.

In addition, I’ve also been on another couple of podcasts recently — one with Laura, and one by myself. The one with Laura was a conversation with Alan Levine for the OEG Voices podcast and it was a bit of a ramblechat about “working openly as a social cooperative organization, how [we] help organizations adopt open practices, developing and supporting communities of practices, open badges (and the Keep Badges Weird community), social media, the fediverse, system change, and more.”

The other one featuring just me was for LernXP. This is usually a German-language podcast, but mine was the second episode in English. The focus was on “from Verifiable Credentials to Open Recognition”. Whereas Laura and I tend to riff off one another and do things off-the-cuff, I made sure I did a fair bit of preparation for this one. I wanted to make sure that I didn’t ramble, and that those new to Open Badges, Verifiable Credentials, and Open Recognition could actually figure out what’s currently going on!
