Blog>> Brains Respond to Stories as if They Are Real

Green Chameleon

Thanks to Rick Davies via the MSC listserve for this lead Fascinating piece from the February 17 issue of the New Scientist on a whole raft of brain research suggesting that the human brain processes the information from stories in very similar ways to the way it processes information from perceived reality.

Does Email Fundraising Really Raise Money?

Hildy Gottlieb

I asked on Listservs where consultants gather. I thought it was going to be easy. Yes, I know, famous last words, but I really did. In a post early last week , I asked whether or not we should do a year-end fundraising appeal.

Through the listserve I learn about lost teddy bears and dogs, free baby stuff on the porch, about burglaries and yard sales in my neighborhood and all of a sudden have 3000 mommy and daddy “friends&# that I can ask for advice when my baby doesn’t sleep through the night and that I can invite for “home office blues lunch&# if I’m missing the company of office mates. Isn’t it strange, how the internet changes our offline life?

Wiki as repository for a virtual community

Joitske Hulsebosch

Through a comment on a blogpost by Nancy White I found this article about a virtual community using a discussion list (listserv) in combination with a wiki. The wiki serves as a collaborative repository. You can access the article here if you want to read it in full. I've been advising a community where using an online discussion forum where few people had experience with a wiki. We started a wiki to put knowledge products together.

Blog Cases from 2005: Christina Pikas on Library Science

  Sometimes, Christina saw an e-mail conversation on the listserv or the news article, and didn't initially get it's importance.  This is another in a series of case studies from people I interviewed in 2005 about their blogging efforts. Now as we move to 2013, I find it interesting to look back at the early days of business blogging. I will only include cases from people who are still blogging now.

September Wrap-Up Community Builder Chat: Online, Offline, and Migration

Delicious/choconancy/online_community

Question 1 : asked about migrating a community from one tool to another, specifically from listservs to a website/forum. Some of the responses highlighted the need to understand what was currently working for the listserv conversations and what would be a valuable hook to move people to the forums, and especially who within the community (not the org) may be the most influential in a successful migration. Tonight was the 2nd monthly Community Builder chat ; and I had a great time!

What we can learn from disrupted meetings?

Chris Corrigan

Over the past few days an amazing conversation has unfolded on the National Coalition for Dialogue and Deliberation listserv about what these events mean for deliberative democracy. In the US right now, the health care “debate&# is raging and town hall meetings being held across the country are being deliberately hijacked by those who don’t want to see reform go ahead.

Essentially, the question is whether blogs build or tear apart other online communities (listservs, online forums, etc.).

As of December 2007 Jack will likely start writing about product management too.

In a follow-up post on the actKM listserve, Brad Hinton makes the excellent point that cumbers can mean different things in different context, which is why qualitative input is so important alongside the numbers to help interpret them correctly. The learning ripples from the actKM conference are still spreading, on the actKM forum as well as in the blogosphere.
