Collaborative Thinking

This enables IM conversations to escalate from a text-based interaction to a VoIP call for instance. Because email messages can be so comprehensive, and included file attachments, they can be stored for extended periods of times within the personal e-mail inboxes of employees. Twitter changes the notion that communication happens in channels while collaboration happens in spaces. Ross Mayfield put forth a pretty interesting question on Twitter (see below).
