Community Equity, SunSpace, FOAF+SSL, & KiWi

Collaborative Thinking

The second half of Friday was dedicated to discussing the Sun Use Case, and the technologies and services we would need to integrate there to support the already existing SunSpace intranet. We agreed that it was unreasonable and unrealistic to expect that Sun would replace the existing Confluence installation in favor of KiWi, because the aim of KiWi cannot be to create yet another Wiki engine that competes with what is already there.

So a good way to look at it would be "these functions are as if my own internal IT team built them" If you take that approach - then you might be very happy to deploy these extensions and improve what Microsoft delivered out of the box. If CodePlex is not your "cup of tea" then you can look for third-party vendors that have integrated their social software tools with SharePoint. Socialtext , NewsGator and Atlassian ( Confluence wiki ) are examples.

More collaboration

John Tropea - Delicious Collaboration

This leads me into another observation, that it looks like this process assumes that the collaborative technologies are in place and working but they are just not integrated in a content sense. Without this, these models are too quickly ignored when a "sexier" approach comes along.

Confluence makes it very easy to log progress as we go along, and record any relevant details.

SalesForce.dot has proven that this approach works. requires a more ad-hoc approach to the creation of these systems which lies directly in the face of the regulatory demand for extensive structure…how do we meet both goals at the same time? I think a more reasonable approach is to involve more end users in the design and specification processes to help ensure their needs are met.

John Tropea - Delicious Social Network KM

A good place to start might be some kind of internal directory or personal profiles, perhaps integrating with corporate Active Directory or LDAP systems.
