A Quick Peak At Cisco Quad: Collaboration + Social + Unified Communications
Mike Gotta    

Below is a video demonstration of some of Quad's main features.

Cisco is also integrating its Show and Share video technology into Quad, so users can quickly and easily post video. And there are APIs for integrating functionality via widgets. Cisco talked about integrating Salesforce, or project management. All of this will extend to the iPhone and the iPad, and, naturally, Cisco's Cius when it ships (this is the Cisco tablet).

via www.informationweek.com

If you're curious about Cisco Quad (re: what is it, how does it work, what can it integrate with, and what the user experience is like), watch the above video and read the entire story at Information Week. Anther good overview article can be found on TMCnet blogs: "Cisco Quad Points To Communications Future"

Doing What You're Passionate About
Tue, Oct 30th 2012 10:16a   Mike Gotta
If you’re lucky, there is some aspect of your professional life that your passionate about – something that sparks your intellectual curiosity, something that compels you to advocate for something or someone – something that actually inspires you. While I’ve truly enjoyed my last two years working at Cisco, I could never quite shake the sense that my passion, as described here, was best found by being in an inter-disciplinary role that combined different types of research (related [read] Keywords: collaboration community social software

To read the full article: Can Ethnography Save Enterprise Social Networking (guest blog post on Ethnography Matters) Editor’s note: Enterprise software systems. Sounds a bit boring and inhuman. But they’re not! This month, Mike Gotta from Cisco Systems, makes the case for bringing the human back into enterprise software design and development, starting out with enterprise social networking (ESN). Recently,  Cisco’s collaboration blog featured an essay by Mike Gotta, Design [read] Keywords: collaboration development enterprise networking wiki

Bridging the Participation Gap – Networks, Learning, and “Play”
Thu, Aug 2nd 2012 11:09a   Mike Gotta
As much as the industry talks about social business and the need for organizations to become more “people-centric”, our conversations too often focus on the merits of social applications and platforms. While technology plays a critical role in enabling new ways of working, those new practices should also be complimented by management and community-building strategies that encourage employee participation.

Design Considerations For Enterprise Social Networks
Thu, Aug 2nd 2012 11:09a   Mike Gotta
While enterprise social networking has been covered extensively in the media and by IT analyst firms, one of the least discussed aspects of the topic has been the issue of design and the potential impact of design on employee adoption of such tools and applications.  At the June Enterprise 2.0 Boston conference, I presented a session, “Design Considerations For Enterprise Social Networks: Identity, Graphs, Streams & Social Objects”, in hopes of drawing attention to the issue and to spar [read] Keywords: collaboration application applications community enterprise facebook interface mobile network networking

Towards A More Participatory Culture: Enterprise Q&A
Thu, Jan 19th 2012 8:11a   Mike Gotta
In October of 2011, AIIM (the Association for Information & Imaging Management, a non-profit research, community and educational association), published a survey-based report that examined social business and Enterprise 2.0 trends. I had the good fortune to hear about the results first-hand when I co-presented with AIIM’s President, John Mancini, on a social networking panel at the Gilbane Conference held in Boston last November. John summarized the work and results of the study. One of th [read] Keywords: collaboration application applications community enterprise network networking profile security wiki

Are We In A "Post E2.0 Era"?
Mon, Jan 2nd 2012 9:12a   Mike Gotta
I just read an interesting report from my ex-colleague Larry Cannel from Gartner ("The Post-2.0 Era: Social in the Context of My Work"). It was recently published under the Burton IT1 Research if you have access. My thoughts - not directly in response to Larry's report, just in general concerning Enterprise 2.0 (which is what came to mind as I read the document)... Are We In The Post-2.0 Era?  Yes. And No. The term “Enterprise 2.0” (E2.0) has been around since 2006. However, many of t [read] Keywords: collaboration application applications blogging community development enterprise instant messaging integration mobile networking social software web 2.0 workspace

Missing Pieces: The Activity Stream Aggregator
Sun, Jan 1st 2012 1:11p   Mike Gotta
Industry discussions on the value of activity streams have been going on for a few years. The concept is pretty straightforward. Social network sites (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn in the consumer space as well as many enterprise social software vendors) display a chronological list of human-readable content fragments that describe actions taken by people and applications. For example, in Facebook this capability is referred to as a News Stream. Typically, an activity stream lists status upd [read] Keywords: collaboration connections application applications development enterprise facebook integration interface linkedin mobile network networking security social software twitter unified communications

Abstract: Social Capital: Its Origins and Applications in Modern Sociology
Thu, Dec 29th 2011 2:11p   Mike Gotta
Source: Portes, A. (1998). Social Capital: Its Origins and Applications in Modern Sociology. Annual Reviews. Abstract Portes is professor of sociology at Princeton University. His primary focus is on economic sociology with an emphasis on immigration and urbanization. In this paper, Portes examines the origins of social capital, concentrating mostly on the works of Bourdieu, Loury, and Coleman.
