How do you determine digital reputation in a new era working on digital? Is data used? Peer review? HR? #FutureofWork

btw: love these digital talks! Thanks
Faisal Siddiqi
Pitch for open source contributions on #github - very visible, easy to measure could be one factor
Dave Vellante
@Faisal_Siddiqi that measures quantity of contributions...how to measure quality?
John Furrier
@Faisal_Siddiqi totally agree but what if repos are private do people share those? What about community data?
Jerry Overton
I think Open Badges are a good start. I'll be talking about DXC's Open Badges in AI in just a bit.
Srini Varadhan
@Faisal_Siddiqi how do we ensure the contributions are actually used? Is there a way to measure?
Dan Hushon
like most markets... it's whether your open reputation can establish a relative value both in skill and potential
Faisal Siddiqi
@dvellante Exactly - reputation is a complex equation, internal and external factors all contribute
Dan Hushon
@dvellante quality is hard to measure quantitatively.. but your participation in high quality projects (internet scale success) can be a measure of quality and potential?
Dan Hushon
we're going to have @Faisal_Siddiqi talk about #blockchain and reputation soon ;)
Faisal Siddiqi
@srini_varadhan Contributions to existing popular #opensource projects tend to be more highly used. All - ask me how to contribute
John Furrier
@JerryAOverton Is open badges open source code?
Dave Vellante
@DanHushon contributions and associations with high value projects - this can be quantified
Srini Varadhan
@Faisal_Siddiqi contributions to the Open Group workgroups can also help build our digital reputation. BTW DXC is a Platinum member of Open Group..
Dan Hushon
@dvellante just ask the team to "recount critical contributions" and then ML can do the rest
Jerry Overton
Videos, classes, projects...what is your favorite way to learn?
Bob Donnelly
Hands-on projects. Challenge is finding appropriate projects where you can learn.
Lisa Braun
Just wanted to say hi to @drbobsays and thanks for joining. Agree, hands-on is where you really learn. That, and writing about it.
Jerry Overton
@drbobsays I find that to be the most challenging and most rewarding route to learning anything new. Personally, I use a combination of videos and hands-on projects.
Jerry Overton
@LisaAnneBraun Oooh, yeah. Writing about it is a great way to learn as well. It's not typical to think of writing as a learning exercise, but it is.
Arin Dey
Google :) in whatever format; doesn't matter :P
Dan Hushon
fork, improve, contribute... next
Lisa Braun
Yes definitely. Just heard someone else (different context) say same--they wanted to make sure they understood/mastered something so started writing about it.
Bob Donnelly
Some videos are fine. I've looked at some related to security certs. Tend to be too high level.
John Furrier
we built a new site for video theCUBE archives theCube.net search the cubealumni and you'll find some personas that might interest you; Dan is in there
John Furrier
We've seen data over the years with our videos that people learning in a non linear progression so a new kinds of discovery is happening. Immerse yourself in a community, and just consume content and iterate that in social way. Seems to work
Olivier Jacques
@DanHushon from the CTO of such a big company, I find this statement sends a very strong message to the technologists out there.
Jerry Overton
@DanHushon Yep. I consider this to be a form of writing and related to Lisa's comment
Jerry Overton
@ArinDey So like, google search? Just type in a term and see where it takes you?
Mike Trusty
quick learning, often using videos, then a series of practice sessions spaced over time.
Ngoc Do
Online courses then projects (internal first then client)
Faisal Siddiqi
#HandsOn is #1 way I pick up new things. Code something, build something - there's just no downside
Jerry Overton
@Faisal_Siddiqi Agreed. And remember to share your work once you're done. It's amazing how much more you learn by getting peer feedback. And it's amazing how much others benefit from you sharing your work.
Dan Hushon
@furrier the non-linear progression was the point about journeys (semi-random walks) vs. paths (constrained execution)..
John Furrier
@DanHushon I've always said you have a clear view of the future of work! You are on it man!
Faisal Siddiqi
For #Blockchain enthusiasts - @danhushon brought up the notion of treating badges and certifications as a form of currency - #nonrepudiable #transferable #spendable. We're doing some work on this concept with internal project #KUDOS - who wants to join?
John Furrier
Seriously we are opening up our media data platform with new influence token soon. What if all the media data in our platform was open for all and users owned their data
Faisal Siddiqi
Mariano Silva, John Cho and Kurt Wayenberg are active on this
Heather Simpson 🌈🍃
and @JerryAOverton, how can we enable partners, clients, etc from outside to contribute here? We already have @furrier wanting to sign up.
Dan Hushon
the project can be [should be] done in a public repo for sure
John Furrier
. @Faisal_Siddiqi I am a believer that token economics will change the nature of community and the role of people and data will play in it.
John Furrier
I have this open site for alpha sandbox is you want to see what we can contribute to the project http://communities.c...
John Furrier
blockchain is a great use case for managing proof of stake/work/reputation/lots others too
John Furrier
can you send me info on how to get involved
Ngoc Do
this is great idea. How can we get involve? When will it be available?
Faisal Siddiqi
I'll ask Mariano to post details of the project on FB@work here https://dxc.facebook...
Faisal Siddiqi
Post your favorite learning sources - MOOCs, Youtube channels, websites
Meg Stead
Coursera and Udemy are my go-to for theory dense stuff, You-Tube for when I need to do/or see how to do something right now (eg change a tyre/code a spreadsheet).
Mike Trusty
Coursera (too many topics to list), YouTube for quick micro-learning, Twitter to stay in touch with current thinking.

Hope to pickup the Cryptocurrecy course soon.

Here is a repost from the Arch Office... this looks like a great resource... the open source Archimate Tool.
