Remember when a couple of months back I created a weblog post sharing over here some further details on a superb piece of work done by Stephen Collins, from Acidlabs, on Enterprise 2.0 under the heading Liberate Your Control Freaks. Well, it looks like Stephen is up to something again. Check out the weblog post titled: I still haven’t found what I’m looking for – not the U2 song where he has shared one other presentation he has done recently for the Canberra Web Standards Group (That focuses on looking into the benefits and cultural aspects around social computing in a business context).
I am going to embed the slide deck below, but I thought I would just let you know about three reasons why you would want to check out the slide deck itself directly in Slideshare where it has been shared a little while ago and which will be good enough to give you an idea of what you can expect :
— Collaboration, Knowledge Sharing and Learning are no longer all about technology. On the contrary the focus is on the people with a focus on the Web as a framework to empower them to share what they know and collaborate with others.
— How building connections and relationships with other knowledge workers through trust can help you become smarter at what you do by cooperating and co-creating content for others to re-use.
— Find incredibly inspiring quotes like this one, from the one and only, Tara Hunt: “Data in the hands of a few makes for order; but data in the hands of many makes for endless possibilities“
Yes, that is right, I can certainly recommend having a look into the presentation materials Stephen put together, because more than anything else it would show you how you can tear apart the command-and-control walls within your organisation and start being yourself.
But, not to worry, there is just some more to come …
