12 Years of Working Out Loud – an overview of my repositories (#wolweek)

We are in the middle of the international Working Out Loud Week (#wolweek) which takes place from 13th to 18th of November 2017. I want to use this occasion to finish a task that’s in my task manager for a long time: “create an overview of repositories where I make my work visible”. The idea for that task came from the 2010 definition of WOL by Bryce Williams.


Working Out Loud = Observable Work + Narrating Your Work


The journey to making my work visible and talking about it began in 2005 when we at Cogneon decided to make our wiki, which was our intranet before 2005, openly accessible to anyone under a Creative Commons License. For a long time I was a member of the open source community and was convinced that open access to knowledge and content is a basic success factor for our society. From that starting point I added a lot of repositories to show my work an narrate it:



For all these repositories I made a table with a short description, the number of items and links. I think in the future I will go through the repositories an check if I can switch more licenses from proprietary to CC BY (e.g. YouTube videos).

Later on we switched to wordpress. Both platforms are open source. The blog content is under CC BY license. [/av_cell][av_cell col_style=” av_uid=’av-bjpexj9′]289 blog posts[/av_cell][/av_row] [av_row row_style=” av_uid=’av-b7imgp1′][av_cell col_style=’avia-highlight-col’ av_uid=’av-aq6o6px’]Wiki[/av_cell][av_cell col_style=” av_uid=’av-adm8w4l’]In 2005 we opened our intranet for the public. To do that we had to remove all critital content (e.g. customer information). The wiki is based on Mediawiki. The wiki content is under CC BY license.[/av_cell][av_cell col_style=” av_uid=’av-9txc24l’]1098 articles, 530 images[/av_cell][/av_row] [av_row row_style=” av_uid=’av-xvh3vp’][av_cell col_style=’avia-highlight-col’ av_uid=’av-8siljr9′]Slideshare[/av_cell][av_cell col_style=” av_uid=’av-8o2fy11′]In 2006 I began to publish slides on slideshare (e.g. conference presentation on knowledge retention method Expert Debriefing). I published the first slides with the simon.dueckert account until we switched to cogneon.[/av_cell][av_cell col_style=” av_uid=’av-tbord1′]107 slide decks[/av_cell][/av_row] [av_row row_style=” av_uid=’av-7lqfaxx’][av_cell col_style=’avia-highlight-col’ av_uid=’av-7485tyd’]Twitter[/av_cell][av_cell col_style=” av_uid=’av-6ox30f9′]In 2007 I posted my first tweet with my account @simondueckert. Via the bio text I declared that all tweets are under CC BY license.[/av_cell][av_cell col_style=” av_uid=’av-6axean9′]10.600 tweets[/av_cell][/av_row] [av_row row_style=” av_uid=’av-5xtz9ut’][av_cell col_style=’avia-highlight-col’ av_uid=’av-5bh3d51′]Youtube[/av_cell][av_cell col_style=” av_uid=’av-4ydwwzp’]In 2011 we ran a “Web 2.0 Driving License” Mini-MOOC and published the videos in the youtube.com/cogneon channel. Since then we tried to record talks and workshops and put the videos there.[/av_cell][av_cell col_style=” av_uid=’av-4j13xt1′]70 videos[/av_cell][/av_row] [av_row row_style=” av_uid=’av-dlhj2d’][av_cell col_style=’avia-highlight-col’ av_uid=’av-3i946qt’]Flickr[/av_cell][av_cell col_style=” av_uid=’av-31ge7lx’]Since our first Knowledge Jam in 2005 we collected fotos of events and flipcharts on our fileserver but we never published it. In 2012 we startet our Flickr Account with albums for our major events.[/av_cell][av_cell col_style=” av_uid=’av-2onxkcl’]1.600 images[/av_cell][/av_row] [av_row row_style=” av_uid=’av-22sysxx’][av_cell col_style=’avia-highlight-col’ av_uid=’av-1gixrxh’]Podcast(s)[/av_cell][av_cell col_style=” av_uid=’av-zsnodh’]Since I often drive to Ingolstadt I often called my friend Ulrich Schmitt and we talked about knowledge management. One day we had the idea to record that as podcast and started the Knowledge On Air podcast (KOA). In the 2013 Management 2.0 MOOC we recorded the friday livesessions (Google Hangout) and published them as podast. This was the beginning of the Management 2.0 podcast (M2P).[/av_cell][av_cell col_style=” av_uid=’av-769wl’]32 KOA episodes, 31 M2P epidsodes[/av_cell][/av_row] [/av_table]

Right now we are about to migrate a lot of content from our internal fileserver and media server to Office 365. In this process we find a lot of content (slides, conceps, images, videos) that we will publish in the future as well. Happy WOLweek!
