Relationships and Identity: Two Sides of the Social Networking Coin

Collaborative Thinking

When we think of relationships, and study it from a social perspective, we look at: how people construct facets of their identity based on social structures in a particular context and activity.

Blog>> Knowledge Management in Intranets

Green Chameleon

Knowledge sharing happens partially with technology, and also successfully without software. In my experience, these knowledge sharing tools are often add-ons to the classic intranet platform. Recently, many people argue (see also New Edge in Knowledge , chapter 1 ‘Primary Directives’) that knowledge sharing activities should happen in our daily work, in order to overcome usage barriers.
