If you know our site, you know our mantra is "ideas are everywhere". With this in mind, making meaning constantly evolves.

Replacing retirees and recruiting new talent will impact every business as well as every government agency. I wonder what these organizations are using to capture the deep smarts of retirees? Although they are probably not looking at social network software - they should be!

What Makes an Online Community Tick?

We initially learned about them from working in open source software (OSS) communities as we implement social applications for customers.
