Dan Pontefract

We deployed our enterprise social network last year, but it’s a ghost town. They’re windowless and the carpets look as though designers around the world have colluded with one another to see who can come up with the most bizarre patterns possible.

[liveblog] Judith Donath on designing for sociality (“Social Machines”)

David Weinberger

Judith Donath is giving a book talk to launch The Social Machine. I read it this weekend and it is a rich work that explores the ways in which good design can improve our online sociality. NOTE: Live-blogging. Judith begins by saying that the theme of the book is the importance of online social interaction and designing for it. Our interfaces may look sophisticated but they’re primitive when it comes to enabling social interaction.

George Siemens

Some progress is being made in using social networks and data visualization to address this challenge. Networks simultaneously contribute to and address the problem of abundance. Twitter, Facebook, and blogs increase the volume of conversations, but when you tap into a few active networks, the social system begins to serve as a sensemaking agent. It’s tough to stay current in any field or on any topic these days – things just move too fast.
