On September 24, I posted the question here, “If ‘It’s not about the technology,’ then what is it about?” The response was overwhelming, by my standards, and I finally took some time this morning to read through all of the comments, and to post some of my own.
To get a visual sense of what came out of the conversation, and partly for the fun of it, I popped the comments into Wordle and made the tag cloud below.
Reading through the comments, I jotted down some of the key terms and phrases and counted up the times that they occurred. Here is the list, sized by their frequency but arranged by their occurrence.
- Maintaining Democracy
- Problem Solving
- Not just learning something, but doing something with it.
- The Story
