Reflections from 2011 on The World of Social Media


During the course of 2011 I have embarked on a whole bunch of business travelling. And perhaps on a separate blog post I will share how I really feel about business travelling altogether and what I would like to see change for upcoming years to bring back that pleasurable experience.

IBM’s Trip to Become A Socially Integrated Enterprise


However, fast forward to 2011 and I still get asked, every so often, how is IBM doing in the social business space, not just from a vendor perspective, but also from its own internal social transformation. Or, even worse, in people’s heads (Not even shared, nor documented just yet!).

Living “A World Without Email” … in Google Plus


but what I am rather surprised about is the fact that hardly anyone has talked or blogged about the fact that Plus does present a real threat to the king of communications, collaboration and knowledge sharing: email! Worse still, e-mail is a black hole for knowledge.

Blog>> Knowledge Management in Intranets

Green Chameleon

Knowledge sharing happens partially with technology, and also successfully without software. In my experience, these knowledge sharing tools are often add-ons to the classic intranet platform.

What can knowledge interventions contribute to development?

Joitske Hulsebosch
