Thank you both for the feedback comments and for the info details. My bad, indeed, that I wasn't clear enough with regards to a definition of what an Activity Stream; I guess that when you are rather immersed on the whole concept behind social networking and social computing one tends to forget that there are lots of people out there for whom this is just mumbo jumbo and thanks to these comments I am hoping to put a remedy about it from here onwards and never take for granted again that folks know somewhat some of these definitions. Better clear them off straight with links to relevant sites like Wikipedia or the like to help clear the mud some more. Thanks for the heads up and for the candid feedback. Greatly appreciated!
Glad to see, Lorne, how you are fine tuning your Activity Streams to provide you with relevant info you needs; that's the whole panacea behind social networking and collaborative filtering, where you rely on your social networks to help you find the relevant content through those filters. Good stuff! I would be interested in reading further on about your own experience with managing those streams and what are the main benefits you are getting... Care to elaborate a blog post at some point, please? That would be great! Would love to learn plenty more!
Hi Cliff, wonderful comments! Many many thanks for sharing them along! That quote from Mr. Twain is just *so* spot on! Indeed, let's not kill it before it's just as healthy as ever! :)
You bring in a very very good point with the sharing of knowledge and information through portable devices; I used to think the very same thing, but then again something called "iPad" came along and all of a sudden here we go again with a portable device, but enough screen share to develop longer threads / thoughts / ideas for discussion and sharing across; something tells me with all of the cool iPad Apps coming along including writing, video and audio we are going to see how blogging morphs into become more agile and dynamic, but still keeping the true essence of lengthier reflections, which is really good, imo.
Blogging is certainly not dead and I just can't wait to get me hands on me iPad 2, too! ;-)
Thanks much, once again for the lovely feedback! Greatly appreciated.
Oh la la ... Thanks, Robin! Well, still with that hint I am not sure I would know who he is ... Yes, non native English blogger, but I just can't figure it out yet. Guess I need to hang out some more out there heh
I know I am coming late to this one, Jerry, but I just couldn't help chiming in heh ... I took a look into the video with the folks singing and think I could identify 5 out of 6... with the only mistery guest still to figure out, since I haven't had the pleasure of meeting that person face to face, so I am hoping that some time soon it will happen ... Here is the list: David Tebbutt, David Terrar, Susan Scrupski, Maggie Fox, Linda Skrocki, Marilyn Pratt. Not bad, eh? ;-)
Great blog post, Jerry! A real pleasure reading through as I kept nodding at every single paragraph put together! You have nailed it down describing Dennis and, to me, it is a great pleasure to have him as a good friend and admired blogger. More than anything else, because he keeps me real. Sometimes, probably far too many, I get a little bit over excited about all of this 2.0 space and it is Dennis the one who puts me down back on the ground ensuring that I don't fly too high, which is just tremendous, because I always learn something about him and his wide IT related experiences, amongst many other things!
Dennis would be one of those bloggers I will be more than glad to recommend anyone to read if they would want to have a good balance of where we should be going and where I am sure we will eventually be heading, thanks, I am sure, to folks like him!
Plus now I will get the chance to finally meet up with him while at E2.0 in Boston! Can't wait for it!
PS. And yes, Twitter is having some major hiccups lately, I am giving it a rest myself, but I see the value of such interactions, although not that gross!! :-P
Hi Robin! Thanks a bunch for putting together this blog post inviting folks to come over and update the wiki space on the case study.Â IÂ knowÂ IÂ shouldÂ haveÂ comeÂ aroundÂ theÂ reviewÂ processÂ onÂ thisÂ oneÂ aÂ lotÂ sooner,Â
butÂ travellingÂ andÂ customerÂ eventsÂ andÂ aÂ bitÂ ofÂ aÂ hecticÂ lifeÂ atÂ theÂ momentÂ onÂ aÂ personalÂ level has not helped out much, but I am surely glad you are opening up the conversation out in the open to comment and update on a wiki space! Excellent stuff!
I will be creating a blog post later on tonight in my blogs to promote the activity and see if I can get hold of a bunch of folks to come over and contribute with their thoughts and experiences. Also, I am going to be away from the office in the next couple of days, so would probably take me a bit of time to cover it as well, but I will eventually jump in, once things on all fronts settle down a bit.
Again, really appreciate you sharing this blog post with the link to the wiki and let's get busy! Let's jam!!
