Wouldn’t it be cool if Monitor had  RSS feeds so that news would come to him too?

While looking through   the projects on Monitor, Ed came across  a great idea   by one of peers.
Ed logs into the    Ownership Community   so they can  collaborate .
That way,  anyone  else who wants to  contribute  can   and  everyone   benefits . Even if they are competitors.
Ed read in a book,  this is called  co-opetition .
Sometimes, Ed has questions.
Sometimes,  Ed’s members have questions.
At  work , Ed uses    the Internet to find answers.
At  home , Ed also uses    the Internet to find answers.
But he’s been using social networking  sites too.  So Ed has a  network  of friends and colleagues to help.
Sometimes,   it’s friends of friends,  people that  he doesn’t know   that  help  him out.
In return, he helps them out.
How do  people he’s never met know he can  help ?
Ed keeps his profile  updated .
After all, how do people  know  what you  can do  of if you don’t tell them?
Now, his  boss , his  colleagues ,  his  friends , and every other   unseen relationship  knows what Ed can do.
If Ed had a  social networking at the credit union,  he might know that the person only  2 desks over  could help him righ...
Or, Ed could  connect with someone 3 states away who has the answer he needs .
So for a guy who likes  to be in the know…
Seems like  Online Tools  and  Social Networks  are the way to go.
