Twitter Is Where Conversations Go To Die

Luis Suarez

Twitter has now become, once again, another messaging board system, like a good bunch of them out there of the once so-called social networking sites. What Twitter did, to use companies like Seesmic to grow and now killing them with their new API rules, is evil.


Twitter metadata and where standards come from

David Weinberger

Matthew Ingram at Gigagom blogs about an upcoming Twitter feature called Twitter Annotations. This is potentially great news, since it will give us a way to add context to tweets and to enable machine-processing of tweets, not to mention that URLs could be sent as metadata rather than as subtractions from the 140-character limit. This is yet another example of information scaling to the point where we have to introduce more information to manage it.

Four lessons learned from 12 years of blogging

Ross Dawson

The process of putting into words your views about industry developments, technology, the future, or anything else requires you to structure your thoughts. If you are going to share your ideasin public, you want to make sure you have your facts right, forcing you to research and find the relevant references and examples. I have long spent more time on Twitter than I do blogging, however they are marvellous complements.

Martijn Linssen

conference on Twitter via its hashtag #e2conf , I noticed a strange phenomenon: most tweets werent about Enterprise 2.0, It's never been a discussion (at least for me) about whether tools are more important than people, process or strategy. Business or Pleasure? -


4.5 things Twitter teaches us

David Weinberger

You can tell that Twitter has added something important to the ecosystem by the volume of the snickering. First, you’re saying everyone on Twitter is an idiot. As a Twitterer ( dweinberger ), I’m going to go with Option #2. Twitter’s success tells us a lot…including the following 4.5 Twitter in its native form assumes we’re ok with not keeping up with the abundance. But, maybe that’s not what Twitter is primarily about.

Future of work is complex, implicit and intangible

Harold Jarche

A recent example of an intangible asset calculation is Mary Adams’ summary of Twitter’s valuation. Relationship Capital: +100 million Daily Active Users, +Advertisers, 3 million websites that integrate Twitter, 6 million Registered Twitter Apps.


integrating personal knowledge mastery

Harold Jarche

An excellent example of this is posted as four articles by the Listening & Spoken Language organization, Hearing First , whom I first met in 2013. While this model can sound very linear, the process of Seek-Sense-Share doesn’t have to happen in a structured form.

Social Customer Service - proving you failed?

A great comment by Guy Letts to my previous post on Acquisition versus Retention made me write this one - the comment is only half an hour old but blew my mind: Theres another example of how ridiculous is the pursuit of NEW rather than getting the basics right. Business or Pleasure? -


Learning as Artifact Creation

George Siemens

Education is an idea/information-based process. Details regarding cognitive processes, teacher actions, learner mindsets, design models, and social interaction remain rudimentary. This process reflects my earlier point: big trends unfold behind the scenes over time and in education, they map and mirror to what people do with information that is digital and networked. Digitization is deceptive in that the deep impact isn’t readily observable.


engineering our own serendipity

Harold Jarche

Serendipity is the process through which we discover unknown unknowns. Simple exercises, like asking yourself, why am I following this person on Twitter, can be more helpful. For example, I often take public transport when traveling.

Social Media: An Interview

Stephen Downes: Half an Hour

I started using ICQ ( [link] ) for example in 1997 (My ICQ number: 1287181) well before it was acquired by AOL. I started using Twitter ten years later (!/Downes/status/243133812 RSS is to this day the technology I use to keep in touch with the network (I just channel Twitter, Facebook and other feeds through my RSS reader) and one of the major ways I keep in contact with others. But when I post on Twitter, almost 5000 people read it.


Reframing the news

Doc Searls

Twitter isn’t it. Yes, these days it’s pro forma for news media to post notifications of stories and other editorial on Twitter, but Twitter is a closed and silo’d corporation, not an institutional convention on the order of the front page, the editorial page, the section, the insert. Most of all, Twitter is somebody else’s system. But Twitter does normalize a model that Dave Winer called a river , long before Twitter existed.


Holacracy Is Not The Answer To Your Employee Disengagement Issues

Dan Pontefract

Everyone becomes a leader of their roles and a follower of others’, processing tensions with real authority and real responsibility, through dynamic governance and transparent operations. Holacracy burst on the Twitter water cooler scene in early 2014 mostly as a result of Zappos.

Platforms Are Not Created Equal: Harnessing the Full Potential of Platforms

John Hagel

Social platforms These are similar to aggregation platforms in the sense of aggregating a lot of people – think of all the broad-based social platforms we’ve come to know and love: Facebook, Twitter, etc.    There are also “process network” platforms that bring together participants in extended business processes like supply networks or distribution operations that help to select and orchestrate participants who need to collaborate in flexible ways over time. 


The Language of Success

Kevin Wheeler

For example, CEOs instinctively move toward the action that will maximize profits and minimize costs or expenses. For example, I might hear a recruiter say, “I felt that the extra time spent with that candidate was worth it because they will now say nicer things about us to other potential candidates.” They focus on improving business processes and finding ways to cut costs. What would an absolutely first rate, 100% “defect free” recruiting process look like?


PKM as pre-curation

Harold Jarche
