Lotus IdeaJam – Hearts and Minds August 24, 2009Posted by Glenn Irvine in Advocacy, Blog, Commentary, Events, Futuring.

It was great to see that one (actually 3) of the stand-out ideas in the recent Lotus IdeaJam was centred around winning the hearts and minds of tertiary students.
This has been one of my hobby-horses for a number of years, and really is a bit of a no-brainer. Tomorrow’s business people are today’s students, and providing them with the collaborative technologies and capabilities early in their life will establish appropriate and emerging practices that they will carry into their business lives.
Let’s hope something meaningful is taken up from the IdeaJam around this very important issue, and that our Universities will reap the reward sooner rather than later.
Facebook: Too Popular? August 19, 2009Posted by Glenn Irvine in Blog, Commentary, Media.

You have to laugh at the litigious nature of our American cousins at times. On the same day that I receive this year’s email about the “Stella Awards” outlining the outrageous successful lawsuits of 2009, I also see an article in the press about a class action against Facebook for essentially being too popular.
Among the plaintiffs are the following:
- A woman who joined Facebook in the very early days when it was largely confined to the college campus at Berkley who has a problem with everyone in the rest of the World seeing her information.
- A photographer and an actress who argue that Facebook shouldn’t be sharing photos they uploaded to their profiles.
- An underage boy (11 years old – requirement is 13) being able to signup to the service.
I have some simple solutions for all of them and will hopefully save the US court system (and Facebook) several millions.
- Parents supervise & unsubscribe
Is that all just a little too simple, or am I missing something? 🙂

Just discovered a wonderful program on CNBC called “Collaboration Now“.
It has an obvious Business/Finance bent, but that’s just the people that we need on board to see the value of collaboration technologies and processes.
They have a great lineup of guests as follows:
Dr. Peter Diamandis
Chairman & CEO, X Prize and Co-Founder, Space Adventures
Author of “The Culture of Collaboration”
Dr. Ranjay Gulati
Harvard Business School
You can see the first episode here:
