  1. The question lady! It’s very early for me here in UTC-0500 so I have only one clear response. Re “knowledge and information – interchangeable?” — no way!

    now a Q for you — where do you get these great images? Do you have a creative-commons source?

  2. Hi Ilyse,
    Thank you for coming back. I would agree with you on knowledge is not information but I feel that people tend to use the word knowledge when what they actually mean is information.

    I get most of the images from http://www.flickr.com – many times I search for cc images but also use others and embed them. If you click on the image itself in the post you will be directed to the source. Some of the images are my own ;o)

    Have a good and creative day and speak again soon

  3. Chrissi,
    The visual communication is such a wonderful medium … looking, in so many ways, forward to your subsequent creations! Your creative energies are such a delight … thank you.

  4. Hi Carol,

    Thank you for your kind words. The CMC11 MOOC makes me think a lot as you probably will have noticed ;o) but I feel that it is important for me not to speak in a black hole… however, I can’t control this and in online communication there is perhams the un-realistic(?) expectation that people will listen and show and interest.

    Knowing that some find the photovoices useful too and that they trigger thinking in their minds and a (re-)action through engaging in an online conversation is really nice to see and it helps me think and re-think and un-think as well. There are probably other people as well who access not just my work but others contribution as well and don’t respond openly. I think we need to accept and respect that too. I think people open up more when they feel part of a community and this is the big challenge. How can you/we create online communities or do we expect that these will form organically on their own. Is help needed or not? Thinking about the ones that might be here but don’t engage openly without meaning that they are dis- or not-engaged in what is happening in the open.

    Looking forward to the next weeks.

  6. Hello Khalil,

    Thank you so much for commenting. I am pleased you connected with the story and found that the link between images and words meaningful. This is something I pay special attention to achieve because I feel just the image is not enjoy and the words are not powerful enough on their own. The combination helps be bring my thoughts, ideas and emotions alive, somehow… if that makes sense and capture these in a more visual way.

    Chrissi
