The social Web before social networks: a report from 2003

David Weinberger

The Web was social before it had social networking software. It just hadn’t yet evolved a pervasive layer of software specifically designed to help us be social. a new class of application, unsurprisingly called “social software.” But what sort of sociality were we looking for? The two talks, especially Clay’s, serve as reminders of what the Internet looked like before social networks. This is an incredibly powerful pattern.

Collective intelligence patterns

Clark Quinn

social networking can facilitate work, to actually analyze and distill some underlying principles. In his presentation on The Landscape of Collective Intelligence, he comes up with four characteristics of design patterns (or genes, as he calls them): What (strategy), Who (staffing), How (structure & process), & Why (incentives/alignment). This is a really nice systematic breakdown into patterns tied to real examples.

[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. 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. Legibility is a huge issue, she says.

Learning in a social network world: the new opportunities. • I haven’t spent a lot of time explicitly in the learning space, though my experience from the mid-1990s in the knowledge management arena means I have long considered many of the same issues as those in learning.

The Future IMS Learning Design

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

The Future IMS Learning Design What is the future of learning design? Joel Greenberg My own personal view: maybe the world is moving on, and maybe the idea of 'design' is a bit old fashioned. I have been looking at the world of social networking, and my mind is moving away from the model where we are the experts and package the knowledge and sequence it. The idea is to lead academics to a lightweight narrative, and having them design around it.

Social Business in the Age of the Customer

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Social Media is one of the hallmarks of our digital age, enabling individuals and communities to create and share user-generated content. Starting about a decade ago with the rise of Web 2.0 , we have seen the explosive growth of social media technologies, - e.g., blogs, wikis and podcasts, - as well as platforms like Twitter, Facebook and YouTube with hundreds of millions of users.

The IT-based Transformation of Services

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

In a series of talks and panel discussions , the workshop first reviewed the historical patterns of technology innovations and economic cycles, and then looked at the future of work economics in three key areas: technologies and societal infrastructure; skills and jobs; and careers and quality-of-life measures. Computer Aided Design (CAD) systems, for example, enable engineers to design significantly more complex objects that they otherwise would have been able to.

The 2010 IBM Global CEO Study

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Technology is a second major factor contributing to growing complexity: “… creating a world that is massively interconnected, with broad-based convergence of systems of all kinds, both man-made systems like supply chains or cities; and natural systems like weather patterns or natural disasters. As a result, such systems are intrinsically emergent or unpredictable, and their design, analysis and management require major creativity and innovation.

Knowledge and Recognition

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

Using 'domains' allows us to recognize that *any* network, appropriately constituted, can be a learning and knowing system. I should have said 'entities' instead of 'people', where 'entities' refers to *any* set of entities in a connective network, not just people in a social network. That said, there are two major issues raised in this post. And is the nature of this quality based in the physical properties of the network in which it is instantiated?

There is no such thing as a social business strategy. There are only business strategies that understand networks. Cooperative and distributed work is becoming the norm in the network era. Social learning is how work gets done in networks. Social Learning.

organizing for the network era

Harold Jarche

The network era, with digital electric communications, changes this. Organizations today should be designed more like the internet ( small pieces, loosely joined ) and less like attractive prisons. The network era needs new structures, not modified versions of obsolete models.

There is one trivial sense in which every theorist agrees that learning is based on a neural network as described - they agree because they have to.

Principles of Networked Unmanagement

In networks, cooperation trumps collaboration. As we shift to a networked economy, our organizational frameworks have to change. No one has the definitive answer any more but we can use the intelligence of our networks to make sense together and see how we can influence desired results.
