This recording harks back to April 21-22, 2009 when I moderated three hours of conversation being sustained online for 24 hours by Jay Cross and friends Harold Jarche et al. Jay is known for his Internet Time blog http://www.internettime.com/ and books/writings on Informal Learning.

The event from which this recording derives was based at the Corporate Learning Trends and Innovation Ning: http://learntrends.ning.com/page/april-2009-event . The reason I'm posting this here now is that this Ning is no longer being $upported, but for as long as it remains online, there's a table with Session Descriptions here: http://learntrends.ning.com/page/april-2009-event.

Jay wanted to feature webheads in this program and he gave us three hours, 1000 to 1300 GMT on April 22, 2009. This recording is for the first hour when we were starting this marathon.  All the conference sessions were held in Elluminate and the mp4 of the Adobe recording of the session was here: http://learntrends.ning.com/page/april-2009-video-page).

The idea was to stimulate conversations by pulling together voices at these times, with others besides Webheads joining in from around the world. It was informal, no slides, or maybe just a few. One of Jay's ideas is to have a web tour up showing a Twitter feed aggregated on #learntrends and this worked at the time: http://search.twitter.com/search?q=@learntrends

The time selected coincides with Earth Day, being celebrated by the webcasters at Earthbridges on http://earthbridges.wikispaces.com/Earth+Day+2009 I put Webheads down in the available time slot during this time, which happened to be 11:00 GMT, but I believe we went on at 10:00 GMT as it was a break time for students at the Petroleum Institute where I worked, and some checked in via live feed from computers in the library to join the conversation, so that a conversation with students at the PI about our environment became a recorded part of the LearnTrends event. I blogged feedback on the event at http://advanceducation.blogspot.com/2009/04/learntrends-in-global-learn-day-april.html
