Activity Streams: Moving Beyond Event Aggregation

Collaborative Thinking

FriendFeed harvests information from a variety of sources (music, photos, status messages), forcing the company to develop/maintain custom integrations for many different publishers and slowing down the ability to add new publishers. As the enterprise considers how activity streams can be leveraged, we see interest in role-based streams and process-related streams.

Clearing the ground to claim Big Society for ourselves

Social Reporter

We need to unpack the bag, re-assemble the pieces, claim them for ourselves, and stick on some different labels.

My contact readily agreed to use mainstream media leverage to help this bottom-up process.

Over the years, I’ve talked to a lot of project teams and people involved in Enterprise 2.0 initiatives. What I’ve derived from those interactions is that the biggest hurdle to success has to do with the “soft” issues related to adoption.
