The recent announcement of Jive’s purchase shows that this field is consolidating with a few large players dominating. The arrival of Workplace by Facebook may even limit tool choice more. Even with fewer tools to choose from, the biggest challenge is changing behaviours.

So The LMS Is Dead: Collaboration-Talent Convergence is Next

Reframing the news

Doc Searls

Most of all, Twitter is somebody else’s system. The tools of news are available to more people all the time. Therefore, the challenge for news organizations has been, for the last couple of decades, to learn how to incorporate the experience of these users and their new publishing tools, into their product — the news. The entire system is shaped by its boundaries, the ridges and plateaus farthest upstream. …all experience is an arch wherethrough.

Lotus Notes isn’t as hot a product as it used to be

David Weinberger

Today, we’d call it a collaboration tool or a corporate social-media tool, and it would be web-based and standards-compliant, like Yammer, Jive, and Huddle. Notes has hung on primarily as an email tool, not living up to its promise as an enterprise collaboration system.

Automated Assumption Fail (#AAF)

Much text here has been changed to.html from.pdf and.doc forms, and extracting all the old formatting jive has been kind of arduous. The other is that advertising is a system of guesswork, which by nature makes it both speculative and inefficient.
