Keeping the faith?

Dave Snowden

The decision we made is the make the incipient wiki on methods open-source (I suspect we will be there by the new year along with some other significant initiatives) which means that a community can develop around their use. This was planned a year ago but there were legal issues as well as concern about firewalls. That became a boundary that had to go, hence the shift to making them open. Just as a warning, this is a rather rambling post.

The Smart Worker : shares what s/he learns

These are not just trivial materials, but valuable performance support resources, for example: How-to materials at sites like Wiki How – “ the world’s collaborative how-to manua l&# – that provide clear steps on how to do something, e.g. How to add a movie to an iPad. People often cite Wikipedia as a unreliable source since it is a “collaborative&# encyclopaedia. Intelpedia is hosted on the open source MediaWiki software. Tweet.

Social media without the BPR

Harold Jarche

Wikis for committee work to replace/reduce e-mail. Other small steps that I think can work without major business process re-engineering (BPR): Use e-mail only for contractual/legal/official communications that need to be tracked, and add an internal Jaiku or Yammer instance of Twitter for business conversations inside the firewall.

Web 2.0 Applications in Learning

Tony Karrer

There were about 7 examples mentioned including Intuit using a Wiki-like system for customers to ask questions/get advice around taxes, using a group blog with students prior to a formal learning event, the US Army's use of collaboration tools to share best practices in Iraq, and several others.

Building a Solid Library of Use Cases

I have been advocating for social software tools (as an opportunity to explore their huge potential in terms of how they help us become more effective at what we do by becoming more open, collaborative and innovative) from as early as 2000, when I was first exposed to different instances of blogs and wikis, whether inside or outside of the firewall, along with what today would be known as social profiles.

Words of Wisdom*

Our IT group changed the infrastructure a year ago, to *open source* (I don’t know what they were thinking), but fortunately my vendor says that they’d be happy to help change the installation to work with the new services architecture. We strictly firewall off access to the outside, as we don’t want people getting information that hasn’t been vetted internally. Wikis and blogs?
