PL 75/11: Network like crazy

Filed under: China, LATINA — plinius @ 1:45 pm

The notes for my final talk at LATINA Winter in Haikou were brief:

A culture is the way we do things:

  • a way of acting
  • a way of thinking
  • a way of teaching
  • a way of learning

A culture is a way of life.

  • To learn a language is to learn a way of life. Wittgenstein.

Three guidelines on the web

  • Be polite
  • Be personal
  • Be persistent

Three new guidelines

  • Share what you have.
  • Use what you get.
  • Network like crazy.


I did not have time to produce a set of twenty slides for a seven minute Pecha Kucha presentation. But the first twenty-three slides from Judy O’Connell’s great set on SlideShare worked just fine.
