    The National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C., United States, the largest of all museums of the Smithsonian Institution, is home to over 126 million specimens of plants, animals, fossils, minerals, rocks, and other artifacts, that represents over 90% of the Institution's collections. As with all museums, a disproportionately large percentage of the collection is stored behind the walls, with only a small number of items put on public display. These items are not sitting in some dark basement and gathering dust, but meticulously organized, labeled, catalogued, and preserved.

    β€œThese collections serve as primary reference materials for exploring and understanding the solid Earth and planet, biological and cultural diversity, evolutionary relationships, biological conservation, and global change. They help us to interpret our biological origins, our cultural heritage, and what the future may hold,” the museum wrote on their website.

    #17 #17 Paul, kudos go to Juan Imaz for speaking out (as platform ownership) against plagiarism. To do so clearly chooses integrity over the all too common drive for MAUs.

    However, the current availability of computerized plagiarism checkers leads frequently to absurdities... as your story illustrates.

    "The concept of plagiarism should not be broadened to such a degree that it becomes absurd ... and we become neurotic ..." ( -- Me)

    @Juan Imaz 90% of the magazines I write for run my pieces through the plagiarism apps. so for any writer its not wise to 'lift' something even inadvertently !!

    I was questioned last year when a short line was detected. Turns out that it was a review of a hotel in Montana, USA, posted on tripadvisor . Weird but true as I never even saw the review in question.

    The thing I don't understand Kevin is how planners can simply think that having technology is always a good thing in education. They think it is the panacea to educational problems. Not too long ago, I was invited to a school to conduct a workshop for teachers. I asked for a room which would allow for interaction amongst teachers. I also asked for simple technology to show some slides and video. I was given a room where the projection was poor even though the gadgets looked impressive. Slide transitions should have been a breeze but the clicker was not user-friendly. The sound system didn't work. The echo in the room made listening to the video difficult. If I had a room with a simple LCD projector and two small speakers, it would have done the trick. As a teacher, I don't need expensive stuff that isn't fit for purpose. What does it take for planners to realise this?

    You got it in one, Kev. The challenge is to have, somewhere in each organisation, someone capable of bridging "the gap between technology and your key products or services". Nothing gets done without such a fascilitator and the dinosaurs who live by the motto "if it's not broke don't fix it" lead the way into eventual oblivion.

    This is really interesting Kev, because it serves as a metaphor for a lot of businesses and personal pursuits. I am gestating an idea of a novella or short novvel or screenplay, and I have been spending a good deal of time on defining the outcome, Thelps immeasurably in charting your path from the beginning to the end, and it is indeed an intellectual as opposed to a technical challenge. My business (advertising) is filled with people who can create beautiful looking ads that have no real idea at their core. The world become a very hollow place when technology is not married to ideas. Excellent post, my friend.

    @Kevin Pashuk While possessing little experience of the education field (apart from being a disruptive and obstreperous student) your piece reminded me of my experience managing a large design agency at a time when technological advances were coming upon us at a high rate of knots. While we were relatively early adopters of new digital design platforms I don't think we effectively embraced out IT folks as more than the folks who did the wiring and fixed shit when it didn't work. Had we brought them into the fold more completely, respecting their in-born curiosity, I think we could have gained a real and sustainable competitive advantage.

    @Kevin Pashuk This is an extremely scarce skill: "It is a skilled craft that combines a great knowledge of the learning process with a great knowledge of technology. It is the gap piece that many schools (and IT departments) lack." Not only is it scarce, it is continually evolving at great speed as it combines knowledge of the psychology of learning and knowledge of systems, platforms and functionalities. Good post Kevin.

    23/05/2017 #3 Phil Friedman
    I personally believe the key is to work backward from the desired outcomes to how you can best achieve them. This helps avoid using a shotgun to kill flies and ridiculous situations in which technology actually slows processes down, at times, almost to a standstill. Technology has to be seen as a means, not an end... as does innovation. This is a solid, thought-provoking post, Kev. Cheers!

    #1 Thanks for commenting Pascal. It always amazes me how much potential is lost because of trying to 'innovate' in traditional ways, using the same talent pool that created the situation organizations are trying to fix or improve. As you mentioned, there is always the NDA and 'intellectual property' (read 'monetize') argument, but that's why I like working in the educational sector. There is more openness to creating partnerships that bridge productivity and innovation. The real challenge is preventing bureaucracy, which such organizations seem addicted to.

    I don't know about schools per se but it would be great to see greater partnership with R&D from tech companies (I understand NDA etc...) I know Accenture in Ireland has the Dock a unit aimed at research and innovation bridging the gap between traditional thinking (productivity) and societal challenges (innovation)
