  • Question time at the end, informal questions during!
  • is a structured, recursive process where two or more people work together toward a common goal—typically an intellectual endeavor that is creative in nature—by sharing knowledge, learning and building consensus. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Collaboration) interaction among people, to achieve common goals without the exchange of goods and services (InfoTech Research Group – Collaboration Tools Revisted In a Web 2.0 world
  • Synchronous collaboration – voice (VOIP, Skype, etc.) that allows for instant questioning and quick resolution of issues Asynchronous collaboration – messaging (forums, email, SMS) that allows for people in different time zones to work when convenient
  • Distance 2 or more creators working on distant (2 feet or 2,000 miles) computers Same platform – Google Docs, Blog software, email (not very 2.0…)
  • Asynchronous Allow people to work in their own time zone at their own time Common software (or site) that all participants agree to use
  • Cloud- John Dvorak (in Cranky Geeks web show) once said it was named the “cloud” because nobody actually knows how anything beyond their network connection actually works. Backup storage – clouds don’t seem stable or permanent – use your own computer to backup as well!
  • Backing up “in the cloud” is a good idea, even if you are collaborating with yourself!
  • Makes a case for allowing use of Facebook, MySpace, etc. at work – blending of social and professional “networking” Avoids bureaucracy! Offers time-sensitive channels or “whenever” channels of communication – whatever is needed.
  • Team scheduling Reusable data - many ways to add data easily! Scheduling services
  • Facebook - http://www.facebook.com/apps/application.php?id=8449172630 – GTD planning/organizing for FB Plan trips Plan moving projects Start a business Plan weddings/events Organize sports teams MyOffice – groupware on FB - http://www.facebook.com/apps/application.php?id=20196811016 MySpace has a new API for apps on it’s platform – too new to determine if there will be anything like FB’s tools
  • For: feature in del.icio.us – send suggested links to other del.icio.us accounts Mag.nol.ia – similar to del.icio.us Collaborative tagging – choosing (top down) tags to use in all services (not just bookmarking services) – give you “group” tag clouds to help users understand the relationships between concepts in your projects.
  • Docs – Ajax (not as many features) - Gears: the ability to save document spaces on your computer (while flying…) and re-connect after you are back on the ‘net – without downloading a copy of the doc and remembering to upload later Thinkfree – Java (laggy)
  • Grou.ps – forums, wikis, maps, photo galleries, feed aggregator, etc.
  • Digitization project – images from all over the state, country in one repository Training day – get trainers, participants together (wikis for conferences – excellent idea!) Shelf moving – organize labor in easily accessible and easily editable calendar, organize layout in documents Research project – set due dates, share citations, create forums for discussion of problems, create final reports
