Wonderwebby's Explorers

Here’s a homage with some links to the people who regularly comment on my (still new-ish) blog. Thank you for the conversation and connection. It’s nice to see who comes to visit and know your thoughts also. In no particular order:

Gavin Heaton. I was introduced to Gavin’s blog via a link on Twitter. Gavin works in Sydney and blogs some great insight into social media and branding.

Barry Everett. I met Barry, from the US, here on Wonderwebby! We have since also connected on Twitter and had a meeting in Secondlife with a few others to discuss knowledge networking. I really admire Barry’s passion to explore the future of knowledge and innovation.

Jack Mason. Jack and I have very effective, regular mentoring meetings even though he lives in the New York and I live in Melbourne. We met through IBM’s blogging network last year and we discuss virtual worlds, social media, collaboration and loads of new ideas. I appreciate Jack’s ability to drive innovation.

Kieran – I met Kieran through another colleague in Secondlife and we communicate often via Twitter, IM, blogging and other social networks. She also has young children, works in the area of learning and is passionate about knowledge, technology, innovation, creativity, community and identity. When we meet up in Secondlife we discuss the future of learning and life – while we walk around virtual planets and fly through space. I wish she would blog.

Ringlerun, who I know in real life. He might like to rant, but he has a heart of gold and a curious mind with a passion for the ways IT can make life better.

Shai Coggins. I met Shai through Lee Hopkins’ blog. Self described as ” a professional blogger, published author, artist, geeky gadget girl, mum, and wife, with a Masters’ degree in Applied Psychology”. Shai seems to make creative things happen.

Rab. I met the Rab through Twitter (perhaps through a Facebook group about Twitter) I appreciate the things the Rab has to say about social media, innovation and Enterpise 2.0.

Ric Hayman. I think I met Aqualung via Andy Piper’s recommendation on Twitter. Aqualung explores Innovation and appears to be an all round Twitter-happy nice guy.

Jen Okimoto. Jen works in in Human Capital Management and has a real passion for Learning 2.0 and the transformation of the enterprise. I love how Jen shares her knowledge with her colleagues and customers.

Sagart – my one and only

Solanio7. Sol is a virtual worlds enthusiast who really explores what makes these worlds work and where they are going.

Douglas who has dedicated 1000 days to write a little, each day. We know each other through BlogCentral at work and IM. I appreciate his feedback and desire to “keep web2.0 real”.

Luis Suarez. Luis mentors me the area of social networking and learning in the Enterprise. You have to admire Luis’ zeal to live and explore this space, from his lovely location in Gran Canaria.

Andy Piper. Andy works in the UK and mentors me in my blogging and virtual world exploration. He really encouraged me with my blogging this year and got me onto WordPress and Feedburner. I also pushed him around in a shopping cart once – in iWoot in Secondlife!

While writing this list I realised how much my style of working, communicating and learning has changed over the last year. Thanks all for comments! It’s nice getting to know you all. *waves to other regular readers*

    Thanks for the link love. And happy to be here. Really enjoying getting to know you better.

    And wow – I really love what you wrote: “Shai seems to make creative things happen.” Makes me think of a creative wizard! Heh. :-)

    Wow, I’m in awe to be in such company! Thinkerers and wizards all. I’m taking your Virtual Essentials to be the guide for the month (year? life?)… Thanks for the wonder… Farnham

    Whooooaaaahhhh!! Hiya, Wonderwebby!! Thanks ever so much for the link love and the lovely words, too! Well, I can honestly say that the pleasure is mine! For sure! You have been just as inspirational and re-energising as one would have hoped for. As a mentor, I am not sure any longer who learns more from whom. I certainly know that I have learnt a few things from you and your insights, whether here in Wonderwebby Land or Twitter or Facebook or whatever else. I am incredibly honoured to have your driving through that inspiration, because it surely helps us quite a bit get there!

    Yes, I know, what a ride!!! Just keep up the pace, Jazz, and like someone I know would say… Rave on! No limits!! :D

    *mwah!* Thanks, angel. I’m getting there, I’m getting there … am starting where it’s “safe,” behind the firewall first! Maybe you could mentor me?

    “all round Twitter-happy nice guy” – that’s the nicest thing I’ve been called in living memory! It’s a pleasure to be part of the conversation, and we must get a coffee in Melbourne one day …

  6. Rab

    Jasmin, since I’m the only nerd in the herd with a silly alias, I’ll go ahead and say that ‘The Rab’ is Ryan Boyles. But the Rab will do. It’s interesting that many of us work for the same big blue global enterprise but somehow became connected through all of these small conversation circles that formed in SL or Twitter or wherever. I wanted to say that it’s neat to be in your list, and I hope to give as much as I receive from the well of knowledge. Talk to you soon. I’m thinking about more Enterprise2.0 topics to explore. My team gives me tons of real world cases to draw from. It’s all still an experiment. But a fun one.

    really, it’s just lovely to connect with you all :)
    apologies if I have forgotten people. I will have to do a post about some of my favourite blogs, some of which are already mentioned above!
