I want to talk about learning

Recently Marcia from the Ageless Learner Blog quoted me from one of my first blog articles titled, "Talk to Me - I am the User."

The Ageless Bricoleur is the web log for the Ageless Learner crew.

Excerpts from the blog:

By the way...Rahul Prabhakar uses Rogers' quotation to open an article on his frustration with technical writing and documentation. Although off the topic of experiential learning, I found this article when I searched for other people who enjoyed the quotation and I was impressed enough with Rahul's article to introduce it here.

He writes the article as an open letter to technical writers, "There is something I must tell you upfront, lest you continue to commit the same old mistakes again and again. I am the intended recipient of your work...if I do not understand or like what you convey, I tend to feel lost, grumpy, confused, and sometimes even angry...So before I proceed, I would like you to answer these two questions for me: What makes you think I would be interested to read everything from you? Are you completely sure you know me well?" Enjoy.

Thanks for joining the UBSquare family. I tried some other way to contact you but found it quicker here.

Since you're using the Blogger platform, it would be great to provide your visitors a quick and easy way to let them get in touch with you : a nice contact form. Here's the quickest and easiest method to get you one.

I don't know specifically your field of interest but if you would like support,advice on any topics, I would be glad to help : just shoot me a mail.

Thanks for joining UBSquare, spread the word about it.

Hi Rahul,

I came across your blog from a technical writer group on yahoo that one of my team member (a TW) forwarded. I am a learning professional and do blog infrequently. But my blog has links to some interesting learning resources if you're interested to read.

Here it goes http://road-to-learning.blogspot.com/

I'm glad to know how actively you blog and thats a requirement from most of the fraternity as a means to actively learn from the community.

Thats great and keep going!
