Social Abacus

I dropped my Moto Q in the bath tub about two weeks ago-- as luck would have it, 4 days beyond the 1-year warranty of the handset. Because I've been indecisive about whether to replace or go iPhone, I've regressed to a pda-free state that only some of you remember once dominated. It's had a pretty profound effect on me: It gives me some of the peace of being on a desert island.

News Updates (October 9, 2009)

Michael Sampson - Currents

Mindjet Catalyst. Mindjet released Catalyst, an online collaboration tool. Catalyst sets out to mimic the way people work together in the same room to solve problems, which Raskin said online conferences lack. Catalyst team members can simultaneously video-conference while modifying a shared document on an online "white board." Catalyst automatically notes which team members made what changes and for which tasks or deadlines individuals are responsible.

What’s Really So Cool About the “Color” Network?

Alchemy of Change

I’m not sure sharing photos with people I don’t know is enough of a catalyst, but I for one, will be keeping an eye on Color. An ambitious new social photo-sharing service just launched. It’s called Color , and it’s getting a lot of attention for a few reasons.

Mr. Community President

Making CommunitySense

We were wondering if anybody would have any idea how we as a community of social change catalysts could practically link up with the now permanent campaign for social change forming around the Obama nucleus?

Engineers without Fears

I'm at the CSTC breakfast kindly put together by Ralph Kerle and AMP's Catalyst for Magic (who does not blog but should). The posed and lovely Linda Naiman is in town. About half-way in, there's a lot of talking go on and my minute attention span is attenuating so I ask her to draw what she does. She bats it back to me and gets two us to do a drawing conversation exercise with her guiding us. I am a terrible drawer but I really enjoyed it. Especially the comet.

From Adaptation into Engagement by Luis Suarez

Elsua

From being blamed from all sides for everything that goes wrong, to become the catalyst enablers helping transform not only the way we all work, but also, essentially, the corporate cultures we breathe in day in day out. Language matters. At least, that’s what I keep telling myself about how important it is to build a narrative you would feel rather comfortable with when interacting with other people, whether your peers, your customers, your business partners, even your competitors.

Collaborative Thinking: New Policy, New Voice

Collaborative Thinking

As we integrate the research teams, I had a normal workload of documents and preparations for our Catalyst Prague event on top of the orientation and on-boarding activities. Since the acquisition of Burton Group by Gartner, I have been pretty busy becoming acquainted with new colleagues and reconnecting with former Meta Group co-workers. It has been a hectic past couple of months and my blogging activity has unfortunately taken a back seat.

Why Lotusphere 2009 Is Important

Collaborative Thinking

I hope IBM realizes that this year's event can be a much needed catalyst. not only a catalyst for changing the mindset of people who might never before considered, or be open to re-considering, Lotus as the foundation for their collaboration strategy but a catalyst for its entire go-to-market effort this year. This year's Lotusphere could very well be a make-or-break moment for the Lotus brand and solution portfolio.

Project Status: Social Networking Within The Enterprise

Collaborative Thinking

On top of all the travel needed to conduct 1/3 of these interview sessions in a face-to-face manner, I attended a couple of vendor events (Oracle and Cisco) and presented at our Catalyst conference last week in Prague.

The basic idea of that project is that as many children as possible in developing countries should get a cheap laptop, as this would be a crucial catalyst for improving their education and work prospects.
