Bloomfire Formalizes Informal Learning

Here’s an article with a little western MI love for  Bloomfire , a Kalamazoo start up creating groups “of informal, social-learning opportunities can be dedicated to anything from sales strategies to fishing.”
Bloomfire Manefesto is a little groovy, but if you’re not thinking about the future of learning it may cause a few synaptic sparks.
Key points: real learning will happen how/where/when motivation strikes. And it happens in online communities.
If you believe any of that, everything changes.
