"Aptimize Your Web Site Today"

Michael Sampson - Currents

A client asked me about network optimization options for SharePoint today -- for speeding things up in bandwidth constrained environments. I knew about Aptimize (as I know some of the guys involved), but hadn't been to their site for a while.

Voki, great tool to use in an online course

Joitske Hulsebosch

I'm always careful with tools that take up a lot of bandwidth (though guilty of using Ning a lot.). I work a lot supporting global networks and online communities of people around the world. Currently I'm also working with a Dutch group of trainers and coaches and now I can use a wider variety of tools and I'm enjoying it. I am now working with a Voice Thread.

Ants basically invented the internet | Grist

John Tropea - Delicious Network

In the case of the internet, that resource is bandwidth. Those signals won’t return back to their origin until they find enough bandwidth. If there’s more bandwidth available, they’ll come back faster. Skip to content. Skip to site navigation.

The Business Value of Stories

Portals and KM

This is a good idea as while stories can be simple, they also require a broad bandwidth to convey their context and richness. Now, with continuing increases in bandwidth and other advances, corporate stories could become more recognized as a major source of organizational learning able to be managed through technology. “Sometime reality is too complex. Fiction gives it form.” Jean Luc Godard.

When Online Video Consumption Moves to Exabytes in 8 Years: Will Phones, TV, Music Player, and Computers Really Converge?

Portals and KM

ReadWriteWeb says that the bandwidth problem will get worst before it gets better, but it will get better. They go on toe argue that bandwidth speeds have accounted for many of the major revolutions the internet has seen including the abundance of high-speed data connections in 2005 that made the video-sharing site YouTube a hit. Good thing I got my iPhone. According to ReadWriteWeb in 8 Years, Online Video Consumption Will be Measured in Exabytes.

Notes on "Three Stories in Beca's Collaboration Journey" - Vaughan Robertson (Beca Applied Technologies)

Michael Sampson - Currents

You can reserve some bandwidth for voice and video traffic, for example. Vaughan is the Operations Manager at Beca Applied Technologies, part of the Beca group. He's talking about three stories in Beca's collaboration journey. Key points: - Story 1 - TeamView, a SharePoint based team site. Have been using SharePoint for a long time, since 2004/2005. Have about 325 project extranets, one of which holds 50,000 documents. Have taken a pretty standard approach to the use of SharePoint. -.

Some ideas about a tool for community reflection

blip.tv for development

Joitske Hulsebosch

This feature is helpful if you want to put the video on a server or on a CDrom to play it back to an audience with unreliable or low bandwidth connectivity. By recommendation from Jay Dedman I moved from Youtube to blip.tv to host my videos (almost forgot I started with castpost ). I thought blip had roughly the same features as youtube, but I liked the fact that when you embed videos, you don't have a large triangle and YOUTUBE on your video. Just looks better with blip.tv.

Interactive maps

Joitske Hulsebosch

I have to admit that I don't do a lot with maps myself so far, I tried a google map for Ghana, but failed because the bandwidth did not allow us to map everyone. I got a question from someone about maps. I thought I could list a few mapping services I came across.

User Adoption is the #1 Challenge for Business Intelligence Too

Integrating online and face-to-face participation in a community of practice

Jenny Connected

Bandwidth has been an issue so that the original idea that we would all be able to be connected via Adobe Connect all the time in small and whole group sessions didn’t work. It might be a while before we can integrate online and face-to-face participation with colleagues in Africa, for example, where bandwidth and download times make synchronous online interaction very difficult.

Designing for Mobile Collaboration

Portals and KM

Forrester states that the problem is the lack of capacity, bandwidth, and data close to the device. Mobile collaboration is an increasingly important topic as two-thirds of the information workforce already work remotely, according to Forrester data. With the adoption of tablets such as the iPad and the proliferation of smart phones in the enterprise, that number figures to grow significantly. It is a matter of when, not whether that mobile devices exceed desktops.
