So what?
Well, if you tried to connect things that are smart using things that are not so smart…
You’d likely try to put all the smarts into the smart things.
You’d likely try to  put all the smarts into the smart things .
Social networks  broadcast  information from smart person to smart person.
And let the not-so-smart computers just  store  information for later.
And that approach can lead to some interesting effects, because…
As you make the smart things smarter…
As you make the smart things smarter… You are also making the  entire network  smarter.
As you make the smart things smarter… You are also making the  entire network  smarter. While also  capturing  all that in...
And if that network is your company…
And if that network is your company… Your company doesn’t just get smart…
And if that network is your company… Your company doesn’t just get smart… It gets  Oreo-Smart.
Let’s think about another information system that could make your company smarter…
A search engine.
If you have a system that is search-based.
If you have a system that is search-based. That provides information  on-demand.
If you have a system that is search-based. That provides information  on-demand.   Pretty useful!
Now, if you add to that a  social  system that is  broadcast -based.
Now, if you add to that a  social  system that is  broadcast -based. That provides you with information  pre-demand .
Now, if you add to that a  social  system that is  broadcast- based. That provides you with information  pre-demand .  Way...
You get smarter every day because you learn things  before you need them.
Of course, this only works if those smart things have amazing memories.
Like, if those things were almost like  supercomputers.
Like, if those things were almost like  humans.
Humans don’t remember every  detail , but…
Humans don’t remember every detail, but… they remember the overall idea …
… and file the  idea  away for later – so it’s ready  as soon as  they need it.
And  then …
When  they need some details…
Then  they can use a search engine to find them.
So…
Social Networks  Broadcast Ideas
Social Networks  Broadcast Ideas Search Engines  Provide Details
Ideas Engine  +
Ideas Engine  + Details Engine  =
Ideas Engine  + Details Engine  = Innovation Engine
Good for Moon Landings?
Good for Discovering DNA?
Good for  Inventing Oreos?
So what?
If your people know things  before  they need to…
And they can search for things  when  they need to…
This seems like a big deal.
So what to do now?
Launch a private social network.
Be a much smarter company.
Invent the next Oreo.

  12. 12. So what?
  13. 13. Well, if you tried to connect things that are smart using things that are not so smart…
  14. 14. You’d likely try to put all the smarts into the smart things.
  15. 15. You’d likely try to put all the smarts into the smart things .
  16. 16. Social networks broadcast information from smart person to smart person.
  17. 17. And let the not-so-smart computers just store information for later.
  18. 18. And that approach can lead to some interesting effects, because…
  19. 19. As you make the smart things smarter…
  20. 20. As you make the smart things smarter… You are also making the entire network smarter.
  21. 21. As you make the smart things smarter… You are also making the entire network smarter. While also capturing all that information too.
  22. 22. And if that network is your company…
  23. 23. And if that network is your company… Your company doesn’t just get smart…
  24. 24. And if that network is your company… Your company doesn’t just get smart… It gets Oreo-Smart.
  25. 25. Let’s think about another information system that could make your company smarter…
  26. 26. A search engine.
  27. 27. If you have a system that is search-based.
  28. 28. If you have a system that is search-based. That provides information on-demand.
  29. 29. If you have a system that is search-based. That provides information on-demand. Pretty useful!
  30. 30. Now, if you add to that a social system that is broadcast -based.
  31. 31. Now, if you add to that a social system that is broadcast -based. That provides you with information pre-demand .
  32. 32. Now, if you add to that a social system that is broadcast- based. That provides you with information pre-demand . Way more useful!
  33. 33. You get smarter every day because you learn things before you need them.
  34. 34. Of course, this only works if those smart things have amazing memories.
  35. 35. Like, if those things were almost like supercomputers.
  36. 36. Like, if those things were almost like humans.
  37. 37. Humans don’t remember every detail , but…
  38. 38. Humans don’t remember every detail, but… they remember the overall idea …
  39. 39. … and file the idea away for later – so it’s ready as soon as they need it.
  40. 40. And then …
  41. 41. When they need some details…
  42. 42. Then they can use a search engine to find them.
  43. 43. So…
  44. 44. Social Networks Broadcast Ideas
  45. 45. Social Networks Broadcast Ideas Search Engines Provide Details
  46. 46. Ideas Engine +
  47. 47. Ideas Engine + Details Engine =
  48. 48. Ideas Engine + Details Engine = Innovation Engine
  49. 49. Good for Moon Landings?
