I worked one job and when I finally quit, they had the VP bring me in to ask why. I said, “Well, if you want me to be honest, I come in here on Monday and I’m completely miserable. I have no rapport with anybody. By the end of the day I want to shoot myself.” He looked at me and he said, “What if we offered you stock options?” Awesome quote from Mike Judge (creator and executive producer of Silicon Valley)… If you haven’t caught the show yet, definitely reco

The State of Community Management 2015
Tue, Jun 23rd 2015 5:16a   Stuart McIntyre
In my line of work as a collaboration and community strategist, one of the key milestones each year is the early summer publication of the State of Community Management report by the The Community Roundtable group.  It tends to provide accurate measurement of the progress of online communities within organisations around the world, as well as offering terrific insight in terms of how one’s own customers and projects compare to the both the average and the very best communities elsewhere.

Collaborative office art

Late last year when the new Jive Software brand was launched, each office created a collaborative art piece. They turned out really amazing – beautiful statements of what creative people can do when they get together and just be themselves. Now each office is sending their artwork to a different office to show off the beauty of Jive collaborations. I can’t wait to see the one that my colleagues in Boulder have created for the UK office!

Yahoo shutters Pipes

Thank you for using Yahoo Pipes! To help focus our efforts on core Yahoo product experiences, users will no longer be able to create new Pipes starting August 30th 2015. The service will be put in read-only mode until we will discontinue Yahoo Pipes on September 30th 2015.

Digitally-positive UK workforce let down by workplace tech

Fujitsu today published a study revealing a lack of digital services being provided by UK employers to their work force.

Some observations: The almost unbelievable resurgence of Apple is probably the biggest story. Microsoft and Intel have both lost almost 50% of their value over the past 15 years. The appearance and stellar growth of Google, Amazon and Facebook. You’ve gotta think that the acquisition of Sun Microsystems in 2009 wasn’t their greatest move (though the fact that the acquisition only cost $5.6bn when the organisation was worth $117bn 10 years earlier suggests that the decline was well u

Is Europe leading the way on Social Business?
Mon, Feb 16th 2015 11:21a   Stuart McIntyre
Dion Hinchcliffe certainly thinks so: [I]t’s not lost on practitioners these days that many of the largest and most committed efforts with social business are now in Europe. The approach to IT in general in the region is certainly more pragmatic, yet it’s also clear that the evolution of the future of work and the new digital workplace is one the minds of just about everyone around the world right now. So, is social business the leading model for operating our organizations yet? Perh

Using random meet-ups to build relationships and strengthen company culture
Mon, Feb 16th 2015 10:29a   Stuart McIntyre
I love this idea… One initiative we’re trying at the moment is CoffeeTime. CoffeeTime is an app, created in less than a day by Daniel, one of our developers. It works by pairing people up randomly, to meet and greet each other, often with someone you may not normally interact with. It doesn’t matter what level in the org chart, or role each person plays. Anyone can be matched up for a 30-minute chat (though people can choose to opt-out, of course). It aims to encourage the cross-team c

Slack turns one year old today. In its short but fascinating history, the startup has managed the remarkable feat of actually getting people excited about enterprise communication software. The company has more than 500,000 daily active users, and it’s adding tens of thousands more every each week. “That’s our primary metric,” founder and CEO Stewart Butterfield tells Quartz. “If you’re not using Slack every single day, you’re not really using it.” The chart above shows the peak

The One Channel Team, which will be led by [Mark] Dupaquier, pulls together 3000 IBM employees across the company’s multiple divisions into one group dedicated to channel needs.

Some thoughts on IBMConnectED 2015 from afar
Tue, Jan 27th 2015 12:40p   Stuart McIntyre
For the first time in 7 years, I’m missing the annual IBM ‘collaboration and social business’ conference in Orlando. Sadly this has also coincided with the conference being ‘down-sized’ somewhat and thus being deprived of the live video-streaming and playback support that it has had for the past 3-5 years. I’ve therefore been watching the event through the somewhat murky and confusing lenses of Twitter and PlanetLotus.  This has most likely led me to more th

My favourite audio utility gets a major update

Every single episode of This Week in Lotus (my goodness, I miss that show) that we recorded over Skype was captured using Rogue Amoeba’s Audio Hijack Pro. This Mac OS X app has always been phenomenally good at managing the audio inputs and outputs available to a Mac system, applying filters and effects, and then writing high-quality recordings out to just about any format you can name. However, Audio Hijack Pro has become a little long in the tooth over the past few years, with the last

Missing Lotusphere (IBM ConnectED)
Mon, Jan 19th 2015 7:47a   Stuart McIntyre
It’s about this time of year that thoughts in the IBM/Lotus community traditionally turn to Orlando, to the Dolphin & Swan hotels, and to IBM’s major collaboration and social business event of the year. From Lotusphere to IBM Connect to this year’s IBM ConnectED, the name hasn’t mattered too much (I still think of it as the ‘Sphere), it was the technology and the people that made the event what it is.  Thousands of geeks and business folks alike, flocking to

The Clue Train is back!
Thu, Jan 15th 2015 7:30a   Stuart McIntyre
For many in this industry, The Clue Train Manifesto was a seminal work in the evolution of the internet, and in many ways forecast the development of social media and social business. As I noted in my Social Connections session in Stockholm, it’s incredible both how prescient the site was (written back in 1999), and also how 15 years later, so many organisations are still failing to take note of the theses it offered. The Clue Train Manifesto book is front and centre on my bookshelves in

Learning from open-source developers
Mon, Jan 12th 2015 10:38a   Stuart McIntyre
I have belatedly come across a fascinating 15-month old post by Esko Kilpi on ‘Emergence and self-organization‘: What takes place in open source projects is typically not the result of choices made by a few (powerful) people that others blindly implement. Instead, what emerges is the consequence of the choices of all involved in the whole interconnected network, “the connective“, as Stowe Boyd puts it. What happens does not follow exactly a plan or a design, what happens emerges.
