I HOPE WE CAN look back in a year and point to an online watering hole that brings social intranet plumbing to my workplace. And I also hope the system is more advanced than in the photo.
I've a watchlist for "social intranet" and every month something new percolates through for my consideration. I started with discussion boards supplemented by mailing lists then let iOS notifications tell me when something relevant dropped into a working Dropbox folder. But these kinds of signals are mere noise unless they come with social tools that aid collaborative projects.
During the months ahead, I need to test some sort of easy mechanism that comes equipped with notifications that alert people on all the major mobile operating systems. At the moment, I think that could mean cultivating a LinkedIn group comprised of upcoming creative multimedia graduates and alumni from the highly-regarded degree programme we run at the Limerick School of Art & Design.
