Sharing: The Currency Of Social Media
Many people say information is power. I don’t believe that. Information sharing is power. People are more than willing to share information not because they are being paid but because they get a feeling of satisfaction that somebody else found their information useful. — Vint Cerf, Chief Internet Evangelist, Google, Inventor of TCP/IP
“You can use my material, but only if you use all my information. The way I teach this subject is the only way to teach this subject and my information is eternal and infallible.”
- I first have a picture of one of the slides; this helps me fly through the growing list to find a specific presentation.
- Then I have the title and links to the native format and the PDF. The PDF is useful for people who are looking for the Read Only experience and for people without the software needed to read the native file. It is important to provide both.
- After that, I have a few bullet points about the scope of the presentation: when it was last updated, weaknesses that need to be fixed. In this case, it has links to a supplementary handout, again as both native file and PDF. Other useful metadata includes how long the presentation is, and the size of the files.
