... This page is an introductory brainroad for exploring some of the major aspects of our unfolding knowledge economy and knowledge society.

 

... The purpose of this entire site: preparing for a different world and different future across multiple time spans in one’s life and the lives of those connected to you through time: associates in your organizations across time and parent to child to grandchild. Additionally, every topic can be viewed from several vantage points: a top manager looking at other organization members; organization members looking at each other; citizens looking at organizations and their members; an organization looking for acquisition targets … There are serious implications attached to each of these and they are in the news almost everyday." from source: http://rlaexp.com/

ghbrett's insight:

This very long page prints out to be 60 pages long, but it is full of facts, images, knowledge, wisdom, controversial notions, ideas, excitement, and more thoughtful information than I have seen together in one place for a long time. It is one of those resources that becomes a starting point or at least a side journey for those who are engaged in information technology, communication, collaboration, computing, and applied knowledge.

As more and more people are using video conferencing for teaching and learning. Also as people use apps like Google+ Hangout. Or let's say MOOCs meetups online. It is more important that one can easily figure out the local time zone (time) that the event will take place in, even though it is listed either as GMT, UTC, or in CostaRica
