21C Platforms  - 
 
 
corporation as a thoughtplatform
Or putting together BCG, Gartner, Sloan, The Atlantic and Marx

My take from a great BCG article, beyond strategy, is that corporations will turn into #thoughtplatforms  sooner than expected.

Some already are, because the times when consumer technology was more advanced that corporate technology might be coming to an end.

Smart corporations are starting to care for their employees sanity, as technology has broken the limits between professional and personal

Others might be understanding that parting from a corporation is more difficult than just loosing one's job, status or reputation - it is a about severing the links to your very way of thinking (anyone just left a consulting company, recently?)

This brings us back to Marx. I am worried that this old fear, that the reserve army of labor is becoming the reserve army of thought, is happening

21C Literacies  - 
 
Where are the 21c monks?
This struck me as very adapted to what the community does 

"Presented on a computer, the written work is no longer an artifact to be contemplated and pondered but rather raw material to be worked over by the creative I — not a sculpture but a gob of clay."

"In reality, the web is more of a write-only medium, with the desire for self-expression largely subsuming the act of reading."

I guess that what we do ressembles writing as much as bed-stories ressemble legends told by the fireplace in ancient times

Time for new literacies ...

Some poetry to end the day

This has probably been shared countless times, I just came across it

A couple of quotes
"There has not been a tool with such a general purpose since language."
"In the Kingdom of Apps, we are users, not makers"

We should probably go out of the social networks and start wandering the www again ... but #sn  are so #convenient  ...

Convenience is the opium of the #net-people

HT +David Weinberger 
It has been sixteen years since our previous communication. In that time the People of the Internet — you and me and all our friends of friends of friends, unto the last Kevin Bacon — have made the Internet an awesome place, filled with wonders and portents. From the serious to the lolworthy to ...

21C Storytelling  - 
 
context collapse
Is regulation becoming aware of social media ways?
What counts as a threat via social media, and what are the legal implications? The Supreme Court just made a ruling on this subject, deciding 8-1 that content alone is not sufficient evidence. Most accounts of this ruling frame it as “raising the bar” for a legal conviction of threatening ...

accepting a little challenge

What if robotics and machines were just pushing us further?

Now, how do you manage that and corporate greed?  

“It is extremely important to remember that the Darpa Robotics Challenge is about a team of humans and machines working together,” he said. “Without the person, these machines could hardly do anything at all.”

"Our assumptions and expectations about artificial intelligence have gotten ahead of the reality, in a way that is distorting our view not only of the future but of the very real accomplishments being made in the AI and robotics fields."

21C Design  - 
 
*Fair and Balanced against Good Night and Good Luck

"Algorithms are made to capture, analyze, and re-adjust individual behavior in ways that serve particular ends. "

Some people created religions with paper and pen ... watch out for the platforms gods ...
The most crucial thing people forget about social media, all technologies, is that certain people with certain politics, insecurities, and financial interests structure them. On an abstract level, yeah, we may all know that these sites are shaped, designed, and controlled by specific humans.

on measure and being seen

Do we measure up?
"The ideal subject has always been a public subject. Deviancy is what hides in the shadows. Sharing is part of the need to reveal the body for public scrutiny to prove that the individual is a good person."

Do we measure others?
Participatory panopticon : “everybody watching everybody else, all the time”
http://www.ribbonfarm.com/2013/03/22/social-dark-matter-on-seeing-and-being-seen/

But who watches the platform masters? No one really, as they hold the machine (algorythm) that knows the answer (data)

I thought the design need for 21C is democracy ... or what comes after it

#metademocracy   #panopticon   #quantifiedself  
The quantified self (QS) movement advertises itself as a way for individuals interested in tracking their daily lives to use sensors and computing technology to monitor their activities, whether those activities involve biological processes or social actions, to better understand the their ...

From control to responsibility

Great post from +Jon Husband , that tells how long it will take for things to evolve

Useful to link it to this nice piece by +dominique turcq 
https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/comment-cr%C3%A9er-une-culture-digitale-en-entreprise-dominique-f-turcq
I am using the term ‘framework’ loosely.I think no one really knows what the massive gradual transition to social computing and collaboration as core work activities means in practical terms for today’s (and tomorrow’s) human resources professionals and the people management processes and practices they design, implement, coach and manage.I say that with full knowledge that over the last two decades we have seen a lot of talk and activity aimed a...

Story
Tagline
Consulting for better ways of working
Introduction
Thanks for stopping by ...

I am a management consultant. I work with companies that want to leverage social or digital technologies to improve their ways : how they work, decide, engage and create.

Analysis
Defining the collaborative maturity of an organization, its readiness to adopt social technologies and its potential for value creation.

Understanding what platform (Google, Microsoft, SAP, IBM Connections, Jive, Salesforce, ...) better fits with the organization, its strategy, its ecosystem, its ways of working and above all its ambition.

Co-design
Leading an open and community based co-design program to leverage a given platform to build an Employee User Experience that acts as the starting point for the transformation that takes place after social technologies are adopted. An Employee User Experience encompasses ways of working, behaviours, UX, social processes, structures, intelligent profiles, social actions and social objects

Transformation
The Employee User Experience is only the beginning. The adoption of social technologies forces organizations to reinvent themselves. We work with the three core functions that are most profundly impacted, HR, IT and Communications, to expand their ways of working and their mission in their organization : social learning, collaborative assessment, dynamic learning professional paths, conversation strategies, Social Technology Center of Excellence, Community Manager and Curator roles, ...

Some tags I find acurate about me : dreamer, curious consultant, father, husband, European, Spanish, French, in love with New-York, Real Madrid fan, Azul, son of Lorca, science fiction reader, Tolkien admiror, democracy critic and hopeful, technology enthousiast. A friend called me a citizen of the world, and I would be proud to be called one


Bragging rights
Hopefully still ahead ... but three lovelly kids and an exceptional wife qualify here
