Some good tips for sharing on collaboration platforms

Gust MEES's curator insight, October 19, 2015 1:00 PM
Working out loud

Recognizing this, Bryce Williams coined the term “working out loud” and defined it this way:

 “Working out loud = Narrating your work + Observable work”  

For Bryce, narrating your work is “journaling…what you are doing in an open way.” And making your work observable is “creating/modifying/storing your work in places that others can see it, follow it, and contribute to it IN PROCESS.”

This used to be impractical with most communications tools. (You’d never send email to a large group about things you’re doing throughout the day.) But modern collaboration platforms combine rich content-handling with Twitter-like activity feeds that make it easy to skim large amounts of content quickly.

That combination opens up new possibilities.

Google drawing is yet another "hidden gem" well worth mining for. Just as versatile as 'paint' but perhaps more easily incorporated into your daily drawing needs.

 

If you're looking for an alternative to paint, or just need a collaborative app to work with teams at a distance, this is well worth checking out!
