- Education, the knowledge society, the global market all connected through technology and cross-cultural communication skills are I am all about. I hope through this blog to both guide others and travel myself across disciplines, borders, theories, languages, and cultures in order to create connections to knowledge around the world. I teach at the University level in the areas of Business, Language, Communication, and Technology.

What we can learn from Linkedin
I found it interesting looking at the analysis section of my connections in LinkedIn, that those members 2-3 degrees from my primary links tended to be from Switzerland and Holland. What was interesting was that none of my primary links were from this country, yet I had lived as an exchange student in both of these countries (Holland in High School and Switzerland in College). It made me wonder how important these experiences during out formative years affect our thinking patterns and beliefs.
