I am a day short of the very first month of operating the Lotus Position Blog, and am surprised to see that we have had over 1275 hits in that month, on a topic that is fairly niche in scope. Sites like LotusPlanet.org that are Blog agrregators lend a tremendous amount of support for readership in this regard, demonstrating how effective these forms of social computing can be.
As I continue this latest experiment in the Social Computing Paradigm, I find the nuances of involvement that were unexpected to be the most interesting. The sense of community between Bloggers on similar topics is one I am discovering.
Today I also saw an article from Microsoft Research where they have demonstrated the Microsoft Sphere. This is a new take on the Microsoft Surface concept, and I am sure is of great interest for all the geeks out there. Sure to get the innovative minds crunching, with a view to future opportunities that could leverage the concept.
Have a look at a video of it here.
