This Blog is my first experience actually setting up and using a Blog. It was invaluable having the help and advice of an active Blogger, Stuart Henshall who provided valuable assistence and tips to me on how to get started. With such help, I was able to be off and running in a few hours, which I thought was pretty good compared to the time it often takes to start such an endeavour. Stuart runs the Unbound Spiral Blog.
We will be meeting with Stuart online this week to hear further from him on Blogging and to discuss directions it is leading to in the business world.

Stuart’s strategy practice, Henshall & Associates helps organizations accelerate innovative solutions to market. His blog, the Unbound Spiral, is influencing and researching developments in the emerging social software arena. As an active blogger, he is working with clients to adapt and merge these new “knowledge tools” with organizational development programs.
Wednesday, 3 December

You can attend the event live with a conference call (including Q&A) reservation or listen to the recorded talk at any time from any location.
In today’s highly adaptive organizations the tools and processes have to support the people networks. The interest in augmented social networks is encouraging the development of new social software tools that are reframing how we connect, share, invest and develop information assets. These lightweight tools, many of which are open source or free (Blogs, Forums, Wiki’s, Newsreaders, IM, Technorati, Feedster, Ryze, Friendster, FOAF, Spoke) are being connected together in new ways to organize, shape, exchange and accelerate information flows and connectivity.
We will illustrate using corporate blogging examples how recent initiatives are just at the edge of a revolution that will harness the collective intelligence of organizations in new ways. We will see blogging has moved beyond its “personal publishing roots” and use K-logs as a starting point to uncovering their value to KM tools. Still that is an opening foray into a tremendously exciting area with the potential to overcome many of the limitation and failings of the traditional online enterprise.
Additional links will enable participants to explore and try out actual tools during the conference week. Particular attention will be placed on blogs, and newsreaders. This will help participants scope an action list for further investigation for personal, team and enterprise needs.
