Anyone who has ever played in an orchestra will be familiar with the phenomenon: the impulse for one’s own actions does not seem to come from one’s own mind alone, but rather seems to be controlled by the coordinated activity of the group.

The Community Maturity Model

The Community Maturity Model | Music, the Arts, Culture and the emergent | Scoop.it

Community management is becoming a lot more common at all sorts of organizations – driven by adoption of people doing more and more online and the social media tools that allow for easy conversation and collaboration. As that happens, however, there is a lot of friction due to lack of standards – not just technical standards but also standard expectations and understanding of what community management is and what should be expected of it.

Herman Miller Research Reveals how Place Affects Learning

"For the past four years, Herman Miller has been collaborating with students and faculty on more than 25 campuses as part of their Learning Spaces Research Program (LSRP). The program took Higher Education classrooms and transformed them into Learning Studios with designed elements believed by Herman Miller to be essential for powerful learning. Participating campuses were given the opportunity to experience the new learning space design concept, while research was simultaneously conducted to measure the impact of the classroom design on students and faculty."

Top 5 Spotify Apps For Music Discovery

Top 5 Spotify Apps For Music Discovery | Music, the Arts, Culture and the emergent | Scoop.it

Excerpted from article:
"Spotify wasn't built for discovery. The Swedish music streaming company realizes this and instead of trying to natively bake a zillion features into its service, it launched a platform for third party developers about a year ago.

Spotify's app directory now features almost 60 HTML5-based add-ons for the service's desktop client. These apps perform a lot of different functions - some are social, while others sonically augment album reviews from big name publishers. The thing for which they're probably most useful is discovering music you might like but may never have heard otherwise.

1. Moodagent:
it has been one of the most interesting apps on the platform. That's because it takes standard algorithmic music recommendations and beefs them up with emotional intelligence.

2. Last.fm:
the Internet radio and music recommendation service is still a reliable tool for discovering new artists. It works by keeping track of everything you listen to and using a Pandora-style algorithm to recommend related artists and albums. It's a simple concept, but one that apparently holds up quite well over time.

3. Swarm.fm:
another social music-discovery app.
Swarm.fm is pretty useful. It uses data from Facebook to show you what music your friends are listening to, even if they're not signed up for Swarm.fm.
That tag cloud on the home tab might look like just another collection of metadata, but it's actually informed by your social music data.

4. ShareMyPlaylists:
 It's a random conglomeration of curated listening experiences, but one that is well worth browsing. 
ShareMyPlaylists has something for absolutely everyone. Devotees of popular music from the charts can browse the "Top 50" tab while those with more under-the-radar tastes will find plenty of new stuff under the "Recommended" tab, which finds playlists based on the artists you listen to the most.

5. The Hype Machine:
The Hype Machine eschews the complex algorithm in favor of human-curated playlists. Specifically, it aggregates tracks from popular music blogs across a wide range of genres, each of them very heavily populated.


There are plenty of discovery apps on Spotify worth checking out - top charts from We Are Hunted and Billboard and social music from TweetVine, Soundrop and Sifter. Depending on your tastes, the critic-curated recommendations from Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, NME or KCRW can be invaluable..."
