I was an avid reader until Mrs and I started having kids. Arthur C. Clarke was a favorite. Something he wrote came back to me tonight.
“Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” — Arthur C. Clarke
I go far afield from what I know when I grow my PLN. Curiosity is my driver.
When I started participating at EdCamps it was dizzying: so much new stuff. Curiosity turned me onto following scientists, too.
This week I learned of The Society for Neuroscience conference in DC. Pouring over #SfN14's backchannel I began following neuroscientists. Their tweets made me curious. They are into some cool things.
So what do I ask of my PLN? Take my thinking where my own probably wouldn't.
I'll do the same for you.
