No Slackin’ when it comes to integration

One of the most notable aspects of the rise of Slack as a the business communications tool of the moment has been the success they’ve had encouraging third parties of all sizes to develop innovative apps and custom integrations for the platform. Just as an example, this is a new one that came to my attention today, combining machine learning with social communications, Obie: INTRODUCING “FLOWS” Spoonfeed, don’t firehose.

Just 11 days to go! Social Connections 10 lands in Toronto
Thu, May 26th 2016 4:09a   Stuart McIntyre
Back in January I stepped away from the Social Connections team due to my commitments with Jive, after 9 events and 4.5 years of helping to grow what is an incredible IBM Social Business user group community. Whilst I’ve been away, Wannes and the team have organised a fantastic 10th event, which takes place in just 11 days time. Once again, Social Connections has headed back across the Atlantic to North America, and this time the event takes place in yet another new country (10 in 10 so f

I’m a great fan of Michael Sampson‘s work: his books – on doing business with IBM Connections, user adoption strategies and building a collaboration roadmap. his incredibly thought-provoking workshops – I have been honoured to host a couple of these, in London and Zürich, and I’ve heard rave reviews from those that have attended other sessions around the world. his keynotes and sessions at conferences – such as at Social Connections. So when Michael mentio

A new 6-week course to help you Work Out Loud – June/July 2016

I am a great fan of Working Out Loud – John Stepper’s published approach to working in the open, transparently and with authenticity.  As he describes it: Instead of networking to get something, you lead with generosity, investing in relationships that give you access to other people, knowledge, and possibilities. Part of the process is learning ways to make your work visible and frame it as a contribution. The core community framework that sustains Working Out Loud is the Circle:

Those that know me well will recognise that I have three true passions and priorities in my life:- My family – my wife and four beautiful children My work – helping individuals, teams and organisations become more productive through the use of online communities Providing a home to foster children – for the past three years we’ve provided short-term placements to individual children and sibling groups So when it came time to revisit number 2 on that list, it made se

Doing a TED Talk: The Full Story
Thu, Mar 3rd 2016 2:07a   Stuart McIntyre
Imagine being asked to speak at TED. Not the independent TEDx conferences, but as Tim Urban explains… The thing I was asked to speak at was the big Vancouver one. I say this not only to brag, but also to explain why this whole thing had me freaking out so much. The same thing that made it extra extra scary also made it extra extra not turn-downable. So I accepted. What follows is the very scary yet utterly compelling story of how Tim prepared and delivered his session.  Really great readi

As the married father of two daughters, this issue is being brought home to me right now… The rise of YouTube, Instagram and Snapchat as advertising media has not helped in any way – the problem just seems to get worse year-on-year. It has to stop. #WomenNotObjects Author informationStuart McIntyreStuart McIntyre is a Senior Strategist at Jive Software.

Time to let go…
Mon, Jan 4th 2016 11:52a   Stuart McIntyre
The Lotus IBM Collaboration Solutions space is an incredible demonstration of what online communities can become through the truly altruistic efforts of its members.  I’ve always known that, but stepping away somewhat over the past year has allowed me to observe the relationships, events and online activities through a new and less obscured lens.  A little distance and independence has done nothing but confirm the wonderfully inclusive family-like nature of this community.
