Several community events (with some Forrester added)

It’s a fact that Forrester has managed to establish some sort of dominance in the analysis of social media trends and technologies. Despite the departure of one of their most prominent names, the commercial side of it is running strong. This week was proof enough: two out of three, and new ideas running scarcer. Yesterday … Sigue leyendo

Participación ciudadana: no es cuestión de software

Ayer tuve ocasión de hablar con una buena amiga sobre una iniciativa de participación ciudadana que me parece muy prometedora, y que me gustaría ver mucho más de cerca. Digamos que la parte filosófica (y de marco legal) la están llevando muy bien, el portal es bonito, pero la participación real, online, apenas asoma en … Sigue leyendo

Stephen Collins’ «Power to the People» presentation

Another Joitske-found surprise. This presentation is neither new (mid 2007) nor groundbreaking, but it does convey -contundently- the social-tool part of effective knowledge management, from the worker’s perspective. Yes, it can be criticised on several counts, but whatever we say, it’s worth looking over. You can find it here. Go. Now.

Visions of KM 2: another draft

This is one paper that is taking its time :-). It is the second installment of (hopefully) a series of documents attempting to explain the specific relevance and implications of knowledge management to different roles of professionals, providing some common ground. The first one attempted to summarise the matter for IT professionals; the second aimed … Sigue leyendo

Mañana empieza Ciudadanos 2.0

Dentro del exceso 2.0 que nos invade (es peor que lo del iPhone, aquello duró menos) se promueven iniciativas que tienen buen aspecto. Por ejemplo, la que nos han comunicado vía la lista SIS, y que reproduzco por si interesa: Expertos debatirán en Madrid en torno a la «Ciberciudadanía, Gobierno electrónico y nuevos derechos humanos» … Sigue leyendo

«Different knowledge, different benefits»: almost, but no cigar.

This friday I commented on a Knowledge@Wharton article that presented the study «Different knowledge, different benefits: toward a productivity perspective on knowledge sharing in organizations» by Martine R Haas and Morten T. Hansen. It’s evident that I didn’t either share the study’s conclusions or appreciate their presentation, but after such a rant, I had to … Sigue leyendo

Social media in the workplace: a SixApart webinar

Thanks to the LawyerKM blog, I just found a quite relevant webinar (indeed, an online recorded presentation hosted by WebEx) from Six Apart, the people who create MovableType (and several more interesting things such as OpenID). The piece is here and it takes a lot to load (it does seem to have a slight quarrel … Sigue leyendo

The Economics Nobel prize and Communities of Practice

Talking about images I like… you may have read here mentions to «changing the landscape» to favour a desired result by making it natural for CoP participants to behave in the way you want. In practice, you can’t forbid things that people want to do (and still keep them happy and active), and if you … Sigue leyendo

Happy blogiversary too, Ton

Last week, Ton Zjilstra over in the Netherlands counted five years of his first blog. Some people have been at it longer, but Ton’s experience is significant for me because he got me thinking about blogs and communities of practice, a difficult but pervasive relationship, and provided a practical example. Then Lilia Efimova‘s attempts to … Sigue leyendo

Gartner on collaboration tools – full Magic Quadrant report

Gartner’s Team Collaboration ans Social Software «Magic Quadrant» report is online, made available free courtesy of SocialText: The report is useful. It’s plain Gartner can’t find a homogenous set of tools, but at long last it seems to have figured they all are part of a coherent market for a single set of needs. … Sigue leyendo

The ActKM Conference papers are online (and I didn’t know)

Well, they’re online since the 25th, but as you know I’ve been out of orbit. According to the attendants, this was the best conference organised by the Australian association yet. They sound impressed, and they’re a good reference. And now they’ve posted the presentations and materials. Specifically, here. They had so much traffic that their … Sigue leyendo

Gestión del Conocimiento en España (VI)

Bueno, ya estamos de vuelta. Después de una semana y media en Sevilla, aprendiendo sobre una interesante empresa química, por fin tengo un rato para intentar ponerme un poco al día. La pena es que no haya sido antes, porque la semana pasada podía haber sido aún más interesante. Como muestra: Jueves 25 de Octubre. … Sigue leyendo

Fernando Tellado y las emociones en la red

Decíamos ayer que el tema de la «amistad» y las relaciones online está ahora mismo causando un cierto interés. Y aquí tenemos una serie de reflexiones relevantes no sólo para éso sino (mucho más) para cualquier persona interesada en la gestión de comunidades y equipos complejos en ese entorno. Puedo certificar que vienen de la … Sigue leyendo

Open community model

By the bye, if you have a second to spare this Sunday, you could do worse than read Ed’s write up of Unicom’s Social Tools conference. Besides links to very interesting presentations, he allows a minute for discussing the current tendency of some to mix communities and network concepts and arrive at wrong consequences. I’d … Sigue leyendo

The KB on practical methods for knowledge sharing

Thanks to Ed Mitchell’s tip and blog post I was reminded of the latest free e-book produced by the Knowledgeboard. This year’s crop of practical stories and methods (Hands-on knowledge co-creation and sharing – Practical methods and techniques), highly reccomendable as a read and maybe even as a referece is already available for download here … Sigue leyendo

The unbearable weight of web 2.0

To be precise: the weight given to web 2.0-related criteria in today’s online world. It’s a bit disappointing, but there it is. For instance, take the Macuarium flagship site, Macuarium.com. It’s got a Technorati authority ranking of 90-odd. I mean, for goodness sake, there’s half-year blogs with a higher rating :-). Macuarium.com accounts for over … Sigue leyendo

Upcoming: the Knowledge Wave paper

Friends and colleagues (and some very curious and kind souls) may have noticed that I stopped talking about the second «Visions of KM for management» paper, before summer. There’s a reason: while I believe it was essentially solid, it had a very big flaw and another serious one. It lacked focus and (as Rosanna Tarsiero … Sigue leyendo

Un millón en LinkedIn, y la diferencia entre redes y comunidades

Bueno, después de un breve episodio lúdicofestivo (o no), volvemos al tema titular del blog. Esta tarde he aceptado una propuesta de link de una conocida que lleva un gran grupo de usuarios Mac en Venezuela. Conozco su trabajo y la conozco a ella, pero lo cierto es que normalmente soy más exigente en cuanto … Sigue leyendo

Say «tag»… I mean, «category»

Now isn’t it great :-). After yesterday’s reports that Oracle had brought its mind around the concept of social tagging (a nice harbinger for large corporates), here comes WordPress and changes the rules. Actually, what they’ve done is recognize that «tags» (or keywords) are not the same as «categories» (or taxonomies). In their own words, … Sigue leyendo

Folksonomies, keywords, tags, and ECM

Never say never: I didn’t hold them as a reference but I was evidently wrong. A colleague has just pointed me to a recent (July 2007) paper published by Oracle, and which can be found here, that discusses the concepts of tagging and folksonomies. It bridges (quite well) the gap with pre-web 2.0 taxonomy and … Sigue leyendo
