Can someone help me understand the aggression of ed. tech companies on the EDUCAUSE vendor floor and their passivity in the blogosphere and social media environment?Why is it that I could not walk from one end of the vendor floor to another without being assaulted by offers to sit in on a presentation, have a deep conversation about a product or service and the future of education, or receive some SWAG - yet we continue to have very few examples of people who work for ed. tech companies authentically and actively engaging in online debates and conversations?

Dear EDUCAUSE 2010 Program Committee:
November 5, 2009
The EDUCAUSE annual conference is the one meeting each year that, for me, qualifies as unmissable. I come to EDUCAUSE for the vendors. To understand their product roadmaps. To get a sense of the competition. To get a feel for which company seems hot. To discover new companies and new strategies for vendors that I know. But most of all, I come to talk to the people who work for the companies whose services and platforms we utilize, or may utilize, on our campus. This EDUCAUSE I spoke to a number of smart people across a range of vendors. I hope to build on these relationships.

Full disclosure. I am an ECAR fellow, in the EDUCAUSE Center for Applied Research, which was founded and is run by Richard Katz.The single best piece of writing in recent memory on the large scale structural forces shaping higher education and the role of technology in impacting these forces is the first chapter of The Tower and the Cloud, "The Gathering Cloud: Is This the End of the Middle?"

We had the Cornell Interactive Theater CITE come to campus this week to offer workshops on communication issues specific to working in the academy.HR workshops on gender, race, harassment and communication are, in my experience, not productive. The work that CITE does is the exception. Perhaps since the CITE actors emerged out of academia, know our culture, and speak our language, they are able to offer relevant and engaging scenarios that spark authentic discussions.

Gardner Campbell will be moderating/participating in an EDUCAUSE POINT/COUNTERPOINT session with myself and John Fritz: "Learning Management Technologies: Enterprise System or Consumer Good?"

Where social media make sense to me are as a method of exposing the fact that organizations are made up of people. I don't want to read blog posts or Facebook status updates or tweets from Microsoft, Google, Blackboard, Adobe, Apple etc.... But I do want to hear from the people who work at these companies. Particularly the people who work in the education divisions of these companies.
