In other words, social media tools enable “gray markets” in enterprise self-organization unanticipated by the organizations that provide them. Sometimes, organizations even experience “black markets” in social media-enabled “self-organization” when their people use unauthorized or unsanctioned platforms like Twitter, Dropbox, Skype, LinkedIn, Google+ and even Facebook to share ideas and coordinate their activities.

When Google Enables Sharing, the Ecosystem Changes | Web Strategy by Jeremiah Owyang | Social Media, Web Marketing

When Google Enables Sharing, the Ecosystem Changes | Web Strategy by Jeremiah Owyang | Social Media, Web Marketing | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

If this came to fruition, Google can tap into a greater resource of their search engine, and make these free products available in their search engine results page. So when I’m searching on Google search for new products, Google could instead indicate that a set of family bikes are available down the street, reducing –I mean eliminating– my need to buy them. Instead Google’s software would match up the person who’s offering it, and connect me to them to borrow it. Expect several reputation systems to be working, both from a social graph perspective (do I know them or do we have friends in common) and they can see my ‘Google Mine reputation score’, which I would expect to emerge.

Adopting Free and Open Source software is now finally a no-brainer choice for the production of new ventures and softwares. If you don’t have a github account you can’t really think of being a smart developer. In the same time, software is no more something problematic for us, we mostly grab our productivity suites, email accounts and everything else for free and that’s mostly thanks to the commoditization and componentization that the Open Source industry itself made possible in the web.

The 12 Habits Of Highly Collaborative Organizations - Forbes

The 12 Habits Of Highly Collaborative Organizations - Forbes | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

When it comes to the future of work and collaboration I’ve worked with and researched hundreds of companies.  Collaboration is indeed a top priority for many business leaders but knowing what makes organizations successful can be a tricky thing.  After all no two companies are like and their strategies and technologies can be quite different. In addition collaboration initiatives come from different departments with different budgets, they have different uses cases and corporate cultures, and different approaches, goals, and measures of success.  So if there is so much variety here then how do we know what makes organizations successful?  The answer lies in chess.

Power to the People: BeagleBoard.org leads the Open Hardware and Software Movement - Tools Insider - Blogs - TI E2E Community | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

In the beginning, overzealous semiconductor vendor overlords commanded that every developer beg on their hands and knees to use the latest technology on the latest development kits. These oppressors demanded outrageous sums of money and refused to offer any help. The earth became a desolate wasteland of overpriced and poorly supported development kits. The masses suffered as the privileged looked down on them from upon their thrones.
