  1. Great vid Aharon, very interesting point especially in this day and age when a lot of networking is done digitally, getting five minutes of someone’s time can make the difference in getting a job in the future.

  2. Thanks for the insight. How true it is. My resume has NEVER gotten me a job, it’s always been a result of finding a way to talk with people.

  3. Aharon:

    This fits very nicely into a social media for educators group that I just became a part of; classroom20.com. It is based on helping educators understand how to integrate web 2.0 tools into the classroom at all levels. More importantly, this is not to create a generation of “button pushers” but problem solvers, ie 21st Century Learners!

    After all, isn’t that what this whole new media thing is about?

  4. Thanks! I’ve heard it before, but it helps to hear it again at a cross-roads kind of moment!
