    1. Hi Travis! Thanks for the kind comments and for dropping by! Well, that may not be happening just yet, but there is a growing trend that demonstrates how email is no longer as critical and paramount as it once was for both internal and external communications, and something tells me that it wouldn’t be either for collaboration and knowledge sharing. If there is anything that social tools have done so far is to prove there are better options out there, so perhaps not there yet, but we surely are going to redefine the way we work with email and everything… Only a matter of time πŸ™‚

  1. Luis,
    Great stuff. I couldn’t be happier than to know that people are watching and thinking about this film. It’s an area about which much is written but very little is discussed. Except online by people with strong views and (perhaps) slightly narrower agendas.
    Getting it out in the open and talking about it in a way that everyone can participate is part of the motivation for Social Media @ Work.
    Regards and thanks again for sharing your thoughts and the video.

    1. Hi David! Thanks a lot for dropping by and for the wonderful commentary! Yes, indeed, that was the main reason why I was dragged into the video clip and why I have watched it a couple of times already to try to capture and digest all of the different nuggets shared by all in such a short time! Fascinating stuff and surely agree with you that most of the times it pays off to throw it out in the open and see how people will react to it and what kind of additional feedback it would spark! Terrific stuff!

      Well done and looking forward to the next one! πŸ˜‰

  2. Something not really addressed here is the need to accommodate communication diversity. I’m not convinced that everyone wants to share and that it’s just a question of time before everyone lives openly and transparently on the social web. Somehow we need to accommodate a variety of styles.

  3. Great post again Luis! The movie reminds me of the time I was working in a company where we had to purchase our first fax machine. There was a lot of reluctance, after all we did all our business through telex, who needed a fax? Within a year the telex was collecting dust and all business was done by use of the fax machine.

    The difference with social media is the personal exposure people will have. One will be more comfortable with it than the other. Transparency and openness is challenging for many! I am sure the ones that do it well will accellerate and thrive!
