El retorno de las comunidades y la importancia del concepto

Hace una semana, hablando con un gran profesional sobre uno de sus clientes, le pregunté si entre sus iniciativas online estaba la creación de comunidades. Se me quedó mirando como si acabara de perder veinte puntos en su valoración, y me explicó que no: ya las habían tenido «en la época de los foros» y … Sigue leyendo

Open, social, and community-driven: ideas and fads for 2013

It’s been a few years since TIME magazine decided the «person of the year» were the people, in their online communities. We’ve come a long way both in usage and in public awareness. So much so that it’s hard to point at what has become of it. New technologies, business models and management fads have … Sigue leyendo

Using e-participation to define Europe

Well, sort of. This may be old news to people interested in e-particpation, but I just came across a relatively recent initiative by the Center for European Studies called «tellBarroso.eu«.

Webcast goodness (III): IdeaStorm, MyStarbucksIdea, and crowdsourcing in practice

Distributed thinking: Galaxy Zoo

Here’s a tibdit from The Economist that I’ve been meaning to comment on for some weeks now. It seems that the «wisdom of crowds» or «wikinomics» crowd (me included, at times) will have a new example to flaunt the efectiveness of opening knowledge processes. The Galaxy Zoo project, now changing gears into publication phase, has … Sigue leyendo

Sunday tag surfing

Before I get down to serious work, here’s a look at the most interesting things caught in the morning’s browsing. WordPress’ tag surfing does add a bit of spice. The wisdom of clouds: John Millner doing a panegyric of social-tagging folksonomies. Not bad for a sales pitch. And he’s right (Socialtext’s shared tagging got me … Sigue leyendo

Content co-creation: the relevance of the deal

You may have noticed that the Wikipedia, one of the most visible results of «content co-creation», is running  a fund raising campaign. What you may not be aware of are the reasons that make Wikipedia averse to using more conventional financing means such as advertising. They are explained here, complete with a brief mention of … Sigue leyendo
