Today i've written my 1,000th blog post... so just about warmed up now!

Let’s start with the difference: the Social Age is characterised by communities, largely online and facilitated by technology. I’ve written widely about how we engage in those communities, the roles we take, the purposes that they serve and the types of social authority that we wield when we connect there. But what do we lose as we move online, what is left grounded in the physical world?

The office is a symbol of infrastructure: a museum to the days when organisations gave you a phone and a computer and you cared enough to thank them for it: a time when a laptop was a status symbol and which floor you sat on reflected your status and authority in a prehistoric, stratified and fossilised hierarchy that was slowly subverted by social change and collaborative technology.

I was momentarily stumped by the question from my niece, but i suppose that’s the nature of naivety: it can be surprisingly complex. “What’s your favourite stone” she asked.

Things have meaning to us, but meaning is about emotion, not transaction. Very few people collect gas bills, but some collect train tickets, part of their scrapbook of memories that narrate their travels.

Choreography is about total quality, about experience by design. Part of this will lie in physical assets associated with memory, imbued with meaning, over time. In a time of constant change, it’s worth thinking what items we may give people for the journey and why. What will they keep in their pocket?

The model i present here is in four parts, each representing a different co-creative or social learning aspect, and it’s exploring who an organisation’s competitors are and what we can learn from them. Essentially, the learning narrative is this: instead of us telling you who our competitors are, and why, we ask people to explore the market, bring us examples, think about how they are competing and how we can behave differently as a result. This is done through four behaviours: curation, interpretation, reflection and analysis.

When publishing was democratised and the printing presses fell to the mob, the publishers said ‘but now everyone can self publish a book we will sink under a million pages of dross‘. And they were right. But then the community came along and sorted it out for us: emergent sense making by the community, a truly Social approach. Which is why, when Sae recommended a book to me last week, i’ll read it: because a recommendation from someone you respect is worth more than any amount of paid for advertising.
