More accurately, we might describe this type of platform as a social network site ( Reference Architecture For Social Network Sites ). If you have a platform that delivers generic functionality (profile, social graph, tagging, blog, wiki, community, etc), an enterprise will want to customize and extend that general-use platform to better met specific organizational needs. If there is a key summary point I'm trying to make it's that "architecture matters".

More collaboration

John Tropea - Delicious Collaboration

Engineers without Fears Saturday, September 15, 2007 More collaboration James Dellow takes up the conversation about collaboration. James D makes the point that collaboration happens within organisations & that people will use any tools that come to hand. Absolutely agree with this. James goes on to say: This cycle by the way is taking place at an enterprise level, but also at the level of individual workgroups, teams and projects.

Collaboration vs sharing

John Tropea - Delicious Collaboration

Engineers without Fears Sunday, October 14, 2007 Collaboration vs sharing James Robertson talks about collaboration tools as anti-knowledge sharing. If I understand JR correctly, his point is that collaboration tools are great for specific teams. However each team works in its own context and this leads to the creation of silos which prevents cross-organisational leveraging of this material. He also notes that this cannot be solved simply by the implementation of a search tool. I agree with him.

Explaining the Granular Social Network

John Tropea - Delicious Social Network

Part of grasping the problem is a lack of quickly understanding the complexity, which leads to deconstructing and getting to two variables: 1) people (their identities online and their personas on various services) and 2) interests. I am not seeing this really taking off and I hear people talking about not fully understanding tagging as as it sometimes narrows the interest too narrowly. Instead I would like to bring over identity, privacy and other work related issues/tags.
