The Collaboration Diner – an Introduction
   

Anyone that follows me on Twitter will have seen that this week has been rather dominated by a single topic, The Collaboration Diner, and was brought to you by the hashtag #cbdiner ;-)

So I hear you cry, what is The Collaboration Diner?

Many of you, especially those in North America, will be aware of a rather famous 1942 painting by Edward Hopper known as ‘Nighthawks‘:

Nighthawks

Painted soon after the attack at Pearl Harbour, the painting is thought to detail the alienation felt by those in a strange city, and the interaction, consolation and prospective relationships that could be found within the diners that were scattered on street corners throughout New York and other cities.  Diner customers could ‘network’ with the few others in the physical location they inhabited.

In 2003, Wired magazine commissioned comic artist Josh Ellingson to bring the diner situation up to date in the face of the emergence of free wi-fi, ubiquitous mobile devices and laptops:

Once again, the diner or coffee shop had become the place where relaxation and re-connecting could be combined, but this time connections were as likely to be with those hundreds or thousands of miles away.  In 2003, it was likely that this would have been via a relatively small group of friends or colleagues that the individual was in regular contact with.

Now bring the situation up to the modern day. Social and Mobile dominate. Almost every individual carries at least a mobile phone, most a smartphone and many more than one device. Multiple social networks are reachable from these devices, personal, professional and organisational sites provide a constant connection to friends, family, colleagues, customers and partners. Business is as likely to be carried out in a diner in a strange city as at one’s own desk.

However, the diner is still a useful metaphor for the  meeting place, for the clash of cultures, the possibility of accidents and incidents leading to passionate discourse and idea-sparking conversations.

Thus we have seen the birth of The Collaboration Diner brought to you by Collaboration Matters, with its first outing at the UC Expo show in London this past week.

Look out for future posts over the weekend detailing what was involved, why it was such an innovative concept, and what discussions took place there.  One thing’s for sure, tech trade shows have never seen anything like it!

A really useful new whitepaper from Jive, authored by the always insightful Gia Lyons: Many of today’s intranets are frustrating: Frustrating for employees to use, for content owners to govern, for IT to integrate, maintain and support. It’s time to modernize and mobilize. But, what should a modern, mobile intranet do and look like? It boils down to three fundamental focal areas: delivering information and expertise seamlessly and securely across devices, giving people the tools to work bet [read] Keywords: connections ibm mobile

The Top 25 Global Social Business Leaders
Tue, Aug 5th 2014 8:10a   Stuart McIntyre
Social business is about much more than social media. A social business is an organisation whose culture and practices encourage networks of people—employees, partners, customers and others—to create business value, and, ultimately, increase revenue and profits. So who are the exceptional talents building today’s social businesses and what can we learn from them? The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) has identified 25 leaders who are successfully applying social technologies, principles an [read] Keywords: ibm

IBM Connections 4.5 CR5 is now available
Tue, Aug 5th 2014 4:15a   Stuart McIntyre
When IBM Connections was first released, all patches to the on-premises code were released as iFixes – individual fix packages that could be installed and deinstalled individually. This was really flexible and allowed issues to be patched very quickly but also lead to very time-consuming patching processes and almost every system I visited had a different set of code updates ...
