Every Monday we curate a number of articles and blog posts that have relevance to members of the eLearning Guild Community, and to the learning and performance field as a whole. Each piece of content that we share includes a brief introduction from the member of the Guild Community sharing why they think the content is important.
Here’s the content for this week:

I love examples of technology that make you reconsider what something really means. In this TED talk, Sean Follmer shares an experimental shape-shifting technology , and shares examples of how it can transform interpretting data, collaboration, and much more. It’s a great glimpse into the future, one that may also expand what you consider possible today. -David Kelly
Seeing the Social in Social Media by Valdis Krebs
Valdis Krebs, OrgNet, leverages a visualization tool where we can see the influenced and influencers in conversations. The impact of this technology could help organizations actually see their structure, where it’s healthy and where it may need support. Outside of this it could be leveraged to identify the very connected candidates and to the interests and individuals they connect with -Mark Britz
