I am still a little surprised when I talk, for example, to teachers and I ask "What do you think of flip teaching?" or "Do you like the work of Sal Kahn?" and I get the reply "What's flip teaching?" or "Who is Sal Kahn?". Or, when I ask "Have you watched the TED talk by Dan Pink?" And they have not even heard of TED.

But its not just education, its in all spheres. It's not easy to keep up with the latest ideas and developments - the world is moving fast.

I keep up with things in my realm of interests through RSS and Twitter feeds and many of the other social media tools. But even then I miss stuff.

One of the things I try to do in this knowledge letter is to help disseminate emerging ideas and the work of leading thinkers.

If you read one item in this knowledge letter every third month then I think it worth my time, especially as I now have over 20,000 readers.

But coming back to some of those ideas and people with ideas. Here are five for you. If you haven't heard of them - they are worth a click through. All are YouTube playlists that I have curated.

Oh and this is TED. Enjoy :-)

If you are interested in Knowledge Management, the Knowledge Café or the role of conversation in organizational life then you my be interested in this online book I am writing on Conversational Leadership
