Five Ways People Adopt And Love Change

Luckily, a communications expert named Everett Rogers looked deep and long at how human beings actually look at and choose to adopt something new and innovative. I love this because Rogers doesn’t look at what sells, but at what actually gets adopted and really, truly used.

Reinventing Relationships

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

The event will explore how the Web, collaboration and social software "will transform - actually reinvent - how organizations relate to their customers, partners, employees and citizens through more compelling experiences.” Forty years ago, for example, the computer industry consisted primarily of expensive mainframes and supercomputers that only larger institutions could afford to buy and operate.

Cognitive load

Harold Jarche

Social computing (or Knowledge Management) is not a strategy, it’s a support tool, a sense-making tool, a way of being. You could say we could use new social tools for everything, that’s why we see HR 2.0, etc…that’s why existing products are starting to get features like blogs, social networks.

[ugc3] The Evolution of UGC

David Weinberger

Social networking is becoming ubiquitous, but the “creative stuff&# is still a minority behavior and is not growing at the same pace as social networking, watching videos, or writing reviews. Budgets for social marketing are still pretty low because the value of it is unproven. [ His data actually show that few people can prove profitability from social marketing but a majority think it is valuable ].

Open, Collaborative Trust Frameworks

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

ID³ , - the Institute for Institutional Innovation by Data Driven Design, - is a new multidisciplinary non-profit institution formed to develop architectural frameworks, open source software and educational content for the protection, sharing and monetization of sensitive data. The notion of adopting such an approach for the development of digital trust frameworks feels like another major disruptive initiative with potentially major implications.

Beyond Free ? Open Learning in a Networked World

Informal Learning – the other 80%

Jay Cross

People learn to build the right network of associates and the right level of expertise through informal, sometimes even accidental, learning that flies beneath the corporate radar. Learning is social. Know-how (creative skills, social practices, tacit knowing-as-doing, experience).

Cloud - the Emergence of a New Model of Computing

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Unlike users, such members of what we sometimes refer to as the IT ecosystem are quite involved with the details of the computing model so they can design and program their applications, including what programming languages are available, what user interfaces they can design to, what system services their application can invoke, and what middleware and/or operating systems are supported. They were designed to be shared by multiple applications and many users simultaneously.

Hence, a MOOC is to my mind, defined along the following four dimensions: [slide 3 – massive] Massive - here I mean not necessarily the success of the MOOC in attracting many people, but in the design elements that make educating many people possible. In practice, what this means is a system designed so that bottlenecks are not created in any of the four attributes: modeling, demonstration, practice, and reflection. but also to be involved in the design of these.

Stupidity and the Internet

John Hagel

As one small example, we are seeing rapid evolution of both social network platforms and physical presence tools that will lead to a much more complex interweaving of physical and virtual environments. The World Wide Web that was designed by content junkies for content junkies to more rapidly locate more snippets of content is already giving way to much richer platforms that will help people to connect with each other and engage together in sustained efforts to create new knowledge.

The Enterprise 2.0 Recovery Plan

Andy McAfee

It’s logical and natural to think that all the good new product ideas come out of the design department and R&D labs, that the folk in the IT department are the best ones to help you with your computer problem, and that the engineers are the only ones who can figure out why the doors start rattling after 5,000 miles on the road. Weak-tie networks are great places to look for novel information and introductions to valuable people.

Why Small Payments Won't Save Publishers ? Clay Shirky

Clay Shirky

Instead, the word ‘micropayment’ is a trope for desperation, entering the vernacular of a given media market only after threats to older models become visibly dire (as with the failed attempts to adopt small payments for webzines in the late ’90s, or for solo content like web comics and blogs earlier in this decade.). This is superdistribution — content moving from friend to friend through the social network, far from the original source of the story.
