Social Network Sites As Connective Infrastructure

Collaborative Thinking

The idea of "connectivity infrastructure" I thought was very relevant and influenced some of the points I made in an earlier post " Enterprise 2.0: However, the organizational value is the more compelling aspect re: how these sites mediate the type of interactions and relationships necessary to master new roles and identities. Social network sites represent a connective infrastructure within personal networks.

Leadership from the place of connection

Chris Corrigan

Indigenous science is about discovering the connections between things, rather than isolating something and trying to understand it free from the externalities that tie it to everything else. I think this is why the kind of leadership we all are discovering is most valuable in indigenous communities: it gives us a way of looking at and thinking about the world that encourages us to dive in, connect and put relationships to use.

Being there together via presence and activity traces

non-goal-oriented interactions are essential for the things that create a foundation for working together (and goal-oriented interactions) – common ground – developing shared understanding and building relationships. when work moves into a technology-mediated realm, things start to break.

How to become part of a blogging ecosystem?

Mathemagenic

The ecosystem is all about connections – between people and online bits (if you are academically-inclined you might be interested to read Blogging Practices: An Analytical Framework , at least in the part that discusses relations). To make those connections two things are important: what tools do you use and what do you do with them. With blogging – in the same way as in an offline life – relationship building takes time and effort.

The Riddle of Online Resonance (first installment)

Jenny Connected

This discussion paper explores the nature of online connectivity and, in particular, seeks to better understand how online connections are made in the very first instance of contact. There has been plenty of research on how to develop online connections once they have been made, but the question of how the initial contact is made has not received much attention. E-resonance is a riddle which is relevant to connectivity and knowledge creation in the online environment.
