All in Expertise Management
Recently I received a comment on an old blog post from 2006 titled “Slide Presentation: ‘Expertise Management Systems’.”
Back in February 2009 in Challenges Facing Recovery.gov and the Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board I wrote the following about making Federal stimulus spending data more accessible and “transparent” to the public:
Federal Computer Week recently published my op-ed piece Why best practices won’t fix Federal IT. I’d be very interested in hearing from GovLoop members what they think of it.
This morning U.S. Chief Information Officer Vivek Kundra released his ambitious 25 Point Implementation Plan to Reform Federal Information Technology Management. Here’s number 10:
Okay, I don’t have an iPhone and I don’t use Lotus Connections, but I think this demo of Lotus Connections on the iPhone is really cool:
An important element in a successful R&D effort is effective collaboration. As the complexity of the research, development, and eventual adoption environments increases — as it does with large Federally funded R&D efforts — the importance of the sharing of information, ideas, and goals increases as well.
I’ve been reading a lot of history and non-fiction recently. I think I need a change. A good science fiction novel is just what the doctor ordered. But what novel?
Here are six ways local governments can use social media to help promote energy conservation. If you think of more please comment below this post or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org:
Jeremiah Owyang’s post Gen Y Enter Stage Left, Baby Boomers Exit Stage Right got me to wondering how much people should understand about technology in order to manage it in an organization.
I received an email commenting on Social Networking and Elsevier’s “Grand Challenge” for Knowledge Enhancement in the Life Sciences. I had suggested that networked access to published health science authors would be useful in emergency situations where there is the need for rapid access to high quality health information from many different sources.
Netherlands-based mega-publisher (and former employer) Elsevier BV has issued a grand challenge:
This document discusses some of the questions you can ask about your organization’s current use of email and how improvements can be made. Also discussed is email’s impact on the adoption of new tools more suited to supporting workgroups and collaboration such as blogs, wikis, and groupsites for sharing information about people and projects.
About twenty minutes into the January 31 edition of the Nature Podcast Nick Bostrom makes an interesting case for promoting scientific advances by focusing more scientific research on how to enhance scientists’ own thinking processes.
Professor Murray Turrof recently sent me a draft of a paper that will be presented at the upcoming 5th International ISCRAM Conference in Washington DC in May of 2008.
I’ve been researching applications of social media and social networking in local disaster response. Here are some of the things I’ve found.
The most interesting statement Forrester’s Charlene Li makes in Google OpenSocial will (hopefully) make social apps more relevant is this:
People use the tools available to them when a crisis hits. Increasingly these tools include blogs, text messaging, and social networking systems such as Facebook. The use of such communication tools in disaster and emergency situations is evidence of an obvious fact: the people most involved in an emergency are going to communicate about it.

James Robertson’s recent post Collaboration tools are anti knowledge sharing? got me thinking about the introduction of technology-enabled collaboration into large organizations. (Thanks to Jack Vinson for bringing this article to my attention via Twitter).
An Associated Press story on Yahoo! News titled AMA wants doctors to swap idea online describes how the AMA has started an ad-free, subscriber based network for use by physicans in conjunction with Sermo, Inc. The network is used for sharing questions, answers, and medical opinions.
In a previous post I commented on the need to take into account, when developing strategies for implementing enterprise content management (ECM) systems, how social media can support not only internal and external corporate communications but also corporate innovation processes. In this post I discuss some of the issues associated with defining and assigning ownership and responsibility for such systems.
