Collaborative Thinking: Social Presence: Time To Push The Reset Button

Collaborative Thinking

So we’ve been on this linear track of presence in terms of evolution and maturation – always anchored around communication – getting more intelligent – better aggregation of presence through multiple connections to other communication tools – richer and so on. Presence makes too many assumptions (SIP/SIMPLE) and has a terrible data model. People are moving onto the next generation of presence (Social Presence) and looking at social networking as the new model (Facebook).

Thinking about the Big Shift and the Social Enterprise – confused of calcutta

John Tropea - Delicious Collaboration

The construct of the Social Enterprise is institutional innovation: innovation in engagement, in sales, in marketing, in service, in product engineering and design. I think I can see, with some clarity, the emergence of institutional innovation across the customer base; the construction of creation spaces; and the gentle growth of collaboration curves based on increasing-returns models. In networks they rise at a linear rate versus an exponential rate of revenue.

The model implies that there is a way to know what the answer might be, and that a person (our plastics expert) could have this knowledge, and that the knowledge can then be acquired by a learner.

Experience curves were about the past; they containerised historical experience and explicitness and sought to extract value by repeating that experience in military fashion; and, in consequence, marginal utility diminished over time while marginal costs increased, and a classic diminishing-returns model ensued. Most importantly, Hagel, Seely Brown and Davison spend time looking at how to scale out collaboration by inspecting and extrapolating models based on decades of empirical data.
