A Valentine's Day video game love story Millions who love music have flocked to the music trivia game SongPop. But two random competitors are taking their game to a whole new level: marriage. Sara DeSpain and Nathan Purdom were playing SongPop on Facebook last summer and struck up an online conversation. After each game session – you hear a series of song clips and try to identify the artist or song faster than the other player – you can send a message to your competitor. They struck up a conversation. Using her profile picture, Purdom found DeSpain on Facebook and sent her a friend request.

After the failure of command-and-control, there is now a growing interest in self-managed work-groups, radical transparency and open learning systems as productivity and innovation drivers. What would that look like for educators? Going Open Open learning systems apply the same learning principles to their professionals as they do to their students.
