tripartite structure of a tag (label)

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , , , , — Saqib Ali @ 4:25 am

“[T]he inherent tripartite structure of a tag which potentially informs us

  1. about the resource being tagged,
  2. about the identity of the tagger and
  3. about the interests of the tagger,

all combine to define the ternary relationship between them. When this is multiplied by ‘x’ number of tags in a given system, it opens a veritable pandora’s box of application options.” -Simon Edhouse

Dear @twitteruser,

“Hi There” was an interesting read.  I was brung up to use Sir and Ma’am in all my interactions with anyone older than me. I used to address people by their last name, prefixed by a Mr., Ms. Professor, Or Dr. etc. I did the same when communicating via email, and facebook, etc. However, since the arrival of twitter, yammer and the likes, things have changed. I now address people with their login name prefixed by an @ symbol (e.g. @weaselese (my twitter name)). This is not only the norm in the world of twitter and yammer, but also a requirement for the platform to function properly. It’s amazing to see how fast a technology can erode years of cultural training.

Unexpected social dynamics created by Lotus Connections

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , — Saqib Ali @ 6:47 pm

Clay Shirky once made the following observation:

"Every time social software improves, it is followed by changes in the way groups work and socialize. One consistently surprising aspect of social software is that it is impossible to predict in advance all of the social dynamics it will create.”

If your organization currently uses Lotus Connections, and you have stumbled upon some new (unexpected) social dynamics with the use of the software, please share them here.
