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.

I was hugely honoured to once again be nominated as an IBM Champion back in December. IBM describes Champions as: Non-IBMers who evangelize IBM solutions, share their knowledge and help grow the community of professionals who are focused on social business and IBM Collaboration Solutions. IBM Champions spend a considerable amount of their own time, energy and resources on community efforts — organizing and leading user group events, answering questions in forums, contributing wiki articles and

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. Well that sucks big time.  Not altogether unsurprising given the lack of attention that Yahoo had paid to Pipes over the last few years (as an indicator, the last post on the Yahoo Pipes blog before the EoL notice was back i

It’s time to Chime!

After many months of following the progress of Jive Chime, first as a partner and prospective customer, and then as a member of the Jive team, it’s exciting to be helping to get the word out about a brand spanking new social communication product! So what is Jive Chime? Jive Chime is a messaging app that lets you quickly and securely connect with teammates on the go, to get the answers you need, when you need them. Nothing revolutionary there I hear you say?  We already have (insert th

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. In the Fujitsu report, ‘Digital Inside Out‘, 73% of employees stated that digital is vital to the future success of their organisation, despite only 45% of employees feeling they are provided with access to the technology services and applications they need to do their job sufficiently. A 29% of the working population admitted that their ability to do their job is

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

I love my job. Seriously. I know that’s a cliché, but honestly, I love what I do. Since early 2008 when I started Collaboration Matters (which morphed into Social 365 back in 2012), I’ve been privileged to have the opportunity to consult for some of the most insightful and forward-looking organisations around the globe.  7 straight years of helping companies improve the productivity of their workforces through using social technologies; working with not-for-profit agencies develo
