Edtech Posse 5.6 Chatting with Howard Rheingold

What a treat it is to be able to chat with someone who you read and admire. Howard Rheingold is a legend in terms of social networking. His book Smart Mobs is a classic and his historical perspective is really important as we try to understand our current world. This video from 1989 was of particular fascination for me.

Rick, Alec and Rob and I spent an hour last night learning from and with Howard. The ambient sounds you here of dogs barking and a parade are from my end. That’s just a bonus. Enjoy.
