Why Can't Business Learn From Open Source And Blogging?

I was almost in tears after reading Paul Graham's essay on open source software communities and blogging and what business can learn from them.

The magic word from Seth,

No, it's not please.

It's ego.

The Changing Nature of Brands

Assigning order to a chaotic process with enterprise social software. People in businesses should be using it to relate ideas, stories and information to each other as well as customers, suppliers, partners, et al. over the net. Enterprise social software will help them spot new business opportunities before the competition does, create a meeting place, be open to radical opportunities, break down silos, support experimentation, and enable managers to represent customers vis-à-vis their own organizations.

You can't manage knowledge?

Knowledge Management by Euan Semple from his blog The Obvious sez, "You can increase the likelihood of connections, you can increase the chances that such connections will result in one person helping another and you can help create a culture in which helping each other is a good thing but you sure as hell can't manage knowledge."

Missed Opportunities?

If you missed Supernova 2005, you can still catch podcasts (search technorati with supernova2005 tag) and several great follow up blog posts. Follow me here on Supernova 2005: Attention, Linda Stone, former Microsoft employee, addressed what we pay attention to and what drives human use of software. She coined the term " continuous partial attention" to describe what looks to me like a person with attention deficit disorder.

May I Have Your Attention?

A year or so ago, I wrote about momentary advantages in business. There's a new frame of reference for value creation that demands creativity, flexibility, and execution. Ideascape makes it easier for your employees to cut through the clutter of information and prevent the frittering away of valuable resources; ie, their time and attention -- mindspace, and re-focus them on making ideas more robust, and useful across the business.
