A new 6-week course to help you Work Out Loud – June/July 2016
Tue, May 24th 2016 11:25a   Stuart McIntyre
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

Women Not Objects

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. A little backgroun

That river’s flowing…

No matter what we do, or how focused or mindful we are, the time just keeps passing doesn’t it? As the great Peter Gabriel once sung: Whatever may come and whatever may go that river’s flowing that river’s flowing (Linking to the ’94 version with Paula Cole – my personal favourite version of an amazing song…) Somehow, over 7 months have passed since I joined the team at Jive Software.   It seems both like my switch happened yesterday, and yet also that I

Stuff that works – Anker USB chargers
Tue, Oct 6th 2015 3:07p   Stuart McIntyre
Friends and colleagues that have travelled with me in recent times will undoubtedly have noticed that I’m a great fan of Anker electronics components. Anker is a relatively new brand, at least on these shores, having appeared in the UK about 3-4 years ago. Through a combination of good clean design, comprehensive well thought-out feature sets, high-quality build and competitive prices. I first bought a multi-port USB charger from Anker perhaps 2.5 years ago, and it is still in daily us

Safari 9 Responsive Design Mode
Tue, Oct 6th 2015 10:24a   Stuart McIntyre
Do you host a site or platform that you need to make available to a wide range of desktop and mobile devices, including those Apple iThings running iOS9? Then you need to check out Safari’s Responsive Design Mode (found in the Develop menu in Safari 9 for the Mac).  Take a look at this (video courtesy of Casey Liss): http://stuart-mcintyre.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/10/responsive_design_mode.mp4 Yes, you can test your site in all the new split-screen modes available in iOS9.  This fe

Twitter timeline zero
Mon, Oct 5th 2015 4:22a   Stuart McIntyre
Over the years, my Twitter followed list had become somewhat cluttered… Just over 4,000 accounts – the usual mixture of friends, family, colleagues, partners, thought leaders, brands and celebrities.  I’d had a few occasional cleanups, but put it this way, it was becoming difficult to see the wood for the trees.  The signal to noise ratio had become pretty awful, and most of the value I was seeing from Twitter came through the search terms I used in Tweetdeck columns, rathe
