Best eLearning Blog 2008

I want to thank everyone who voted for and reads this blog - eLearning Technology. It was announced that we won for Best elearning / corporate education blog.

I previously had some commentary on the edublog awards. I also lobbied for a few of my fellow bloggers who did not win.

The bottom line is that none of us do this to win awards. It's nice to be recognized, but it's not going to change what we do.

In a way, each of us votes every day for blogs. We spend time reading them. Commenting on them. Blogging about them. You can see the ones that I most actively engage with either in the sidebar of this blog or in the sidebar of eLearning Learning.

With the Crisis of Attention, when any of us gives someone our attention, we are spending a valuable resource and giving a gift. I very much appreciate the gift of your attention and your votes.

Congratulations on this recognition. There is so much work, thinking, reflection and diligence behind keeping a blog current, relevant, interesting and readable. You do all of these well, and it is great to see it recognized.

Tony, first, congrats on your award! I found your site after Googling for different e-learning resources. I'll have to check through your site for your 2009 predictions on the story-based scenario model practiced by NogginLabs, CognitiveArts, and WisdomTools (all companies I've worked with). To remark on an earlier post (, my answer on how to compete in the attention economy is Compelling Storytelling(sm). I'll make a point to blog about it in '09 and reference your post. Thanks for your stimulating thoughts!

Thanks everyone for the congrats.

Chris - in January the big question will be on predictions / plans for 2009. So, plan to contribute your post.
