What can you learn from a chatbot?

Some Online Work Goes Mobile or Is It Mostly Personal?

With the rise of tablet and smart phone use, PCs are losing dominance as the major online device despite the ever increasing availability of wifi for PCs.

#KM4Dev – blogging session

Mathemagenic

It didn’t really work that way: we drifted away from blogging as social reporting tool (I’m not surprised, but that’s a topic for another post) and couldn’t practice as some other groups since wifi didn’t want to collaborate. Blogs support visible individual trajectories. Pretty unexpectedly I ended up doing a session on blogging at #KM4Dev workshop.

cloudhead - Cooperation vs Collaboration

John Tropea - Delicious Collaboration

A connective doesn’t give priority to the group or the individual but instead supports and encourages both simultaneously. Since connectives support individual goals, they create value even when a group is small and growing. And this illustrates the real power of connectives: they’re able to support individuals while encouraging the emergence of new kinds of group value. With a little tinkering, off the shelf wifi products will do the job.

UC And ROI: IBM's Truth And Fiction Example

Collaborative Thinking

Thumbs-Down: The concern I have here is that the total cost of ownership is not clearly outlined, a reasonable TCO model would establish a timeline (say 3 years) and include the total costs, including various weighting factors for planning, operational support, integration costs, help desk, change management, and so on. If instead you use Sametime to make your calls over your WiFi connection, you can avoid these international fees.
