ADSDAQ: An Ad Network That Allows You to Set the Price

Managing Communities

ADSDAQ is an ad network with an interesting twist. They ask you to set the CPM (cost per 1,000 impressions) rate that you want to receive and they pay you exactly that – and only that. Nothing more, nothing less. If they don’t have any ads to run where they can pay you that amount, [.].

Organising Knowledge>> Misclassification as an Act of Power

Green Chameleon

It’s one thing to get the taxonomy right. It’s quite another to ensure that it is applied correctly, and that content is classified as intended. In my book I talk about classification as an act of power. It can be used on people (as the apartheid regime in South Africa taught us) to exclude them from equal benefits, to impose sanctions, or to find excuses for genocide.

Forrester on Using Social Computing To Boost IT Productivity

Portals and KM

IT is sometimes portrayed as the bad guy or the obstacle in the enterprise 2.0 space as some times they attempt to block or curtail social media activities. Forrester’s Nigel Fenwick presents a nice twist to this view by offering research on how social computing can boost IT productivity. I saw Nigel at the recent Enterprise 2.0 conference in Boston so it is nice to get a review copy of this report. I really liked the report’s summary.

Net-Map is part of the monitoring and evaluation component that is led by IFPRI. The question we are looking at at the moment is: If the project aims at changing the networks related to infant nutrition, how can we monitor if it actually does. And who do we need to ask to figure this out.
