The Rise of the New Groupthink

Research strongly suggests that people are more creative when they enjoy privacy and freedom from interruption. And the most spectacularly creative people in many fields are often introverted, according to studies by the psychologists Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi and Gregory Feist. They’re extroverted enough to exchange and advance ideas, but see themselves as independent and individualistic. They’re not joiners by nature.

Reblog this post [with Zemanta]

What does a social media consultant do?

This morning, my Kiwi compatriot, Simon Young (@audaciousgloop on Twitter) answered the question in the title on his own blog, predominantly in the context of explaining to people how his company, iJump, makes money.

I figure as there is growing interest in the business value of social media, I would have a lash at the same question. So, here goes nothing…

3007094100_23b26c5c8d.jpgI talk. A lot. I listen more. Two ears, one mouth used in that proportion. By doing this, I can build an understanding of my clients’ business and get across the problems they face – whether it’s collaborating internally, talking to their customers and stakeholders in the right way, or understanding how the market works in the social media world to name a few common issues.

I talk and listen some more. Strategising with my clients on building an understanding of their problems and the possible approaches they might take in addressing them is a core component of my work. From these discussions, which range from one-on-one with the CEO or mail room guy to large workshops with the entire staff, we’re able to build a list of issues to be addressed and some thinking about what we can do to address them. Sometimes it’s quick fixes we can start on tomorrow. Other times, we build a six month to one year plan.

I research and write. Lots. For myself and for my clients. Those issues that need solving? Sometimes that very issue has been tackled before. I want to know when, how, why, who did it and with what. So do my clients. I also want to know what the latest thinking and case studies on business use of social tools is. It’s my job to do that research and help my clients understand what it all means.

So, what words might be used to describe all this stuff? Innovation, change management, cultural change, mentoring, teaching, consulting.

The technology part of this equation, as Simon said in his post, is the least complex part. Understanding organisational culture, readiness for change and what motivations might bring about that change in individuals, groups and organisations are the bread and butter of my work. How do we flatten corporate structures? Encourage fast, cheap and innovative experimentation and failure? Change the management mindset from command-and-control to conversation, collaboration and community?

That’s the cool stuff. That’s the stuff I love. That’s why acidlabs is unique.

BarCamp Sydney #4 – Saturday, 15 November 2008

The (un)organisers of BarCamp Sydney have let me know that they are preparing for yet another festival of creativity to engage and excite the Australian tech and innovation community. Details below.

Date: 15 November 2008

Venue: UNSW Roundhouse

Time: 9:00AM-5:00PMpm (registration starts at 8:30AM)

Register: Do it yourself on the wiki

If you’ve never been to a BarCamp before, I highly recommend it. Make some time in your schedule. For those that have been before, I needn’t remind you how great BarCamp is. Take a look at my tag list below to see just how much of your life this might touch.

Hopefully, I’ll see you there. I’m not sure how my timetable is yet.

AoC2 – Let’s call it Shirley

That title is an obscure Sesame Street reference to the sketch in the video below.

It’s always been one of my favorites. And the message holds true today. In work and in life, we need to turn to experts or those skilled where we are not in order to achieve our best possible outcomes. It’s about having a conversation, collaborating and forming a community. Which is the very message I have sought to drive in my contribution to Age of Conversation 2: Why don’t they get it?

There’s no better time than now to take up the challenge of being the evangelist for change in your organisation. You need to enable conversation, collaboration and community. It takes some nerve, though. You have to think different and act different. You need persistence. And you need to stand up to the naysayers and the resisters, putting your reputation and maybe your job on the line as you push through and introduce something stronger and better. Something exciting and engaging.

AoC2 goes on sale at 8:00AM, Wednesday, October 29 and will be available from Lulu.

socialmedian focussed news (and another Web 2.0 good guy)

Here’s another good news tale of a social application that reached out to me to see if I would be interested in taking a look at their offering. that service is socialmedian. Their CEO, Jason Goldberg, reached out and asked if I could take a deeper look at the site as I had tweeted that I was struggling to get value. He offered to help, and we’ve been chatting since.

sm-logo-home-1.gifsocialmedian are a very new (they fully admit to being in alpha and are very feature incomplete) social news gathering service that aims to provide you with targeted news based on broad (or potentially very focussed) subject matter groups you create yourself or join after others have defined them. For example, I created the eGovernment and Government 2.0 group and have joined others including Web 2.0, Enterprise 2.0 and Experience Design.

The service provides suggestions for news sources for your groups, allows you to add your own and provides a browser bookmarklet you can use to push stories to a particular group.

It’s early days yet, but it seems to be working pretty well as far as the core, news gathering functionality works. I’m hoping to work with Jason and the rest of the socialmedian crew on building out the social aspects of the site, as the way socialmedian works is ripe for rich sociality. In fact, socialmedian actively invite feature requests and seek to push new code live a few times a week. It’s very much development in the open.

Jason has given me a bunch of special invite codes that you can use to join socialmedian in you’re interested. Comment here to ask for one.

EDIT: Actually, let’s make it easy… Go to http://www.socialmedian.com/signup. Use the invite code acidlabs.

Have fun. Play. Give them feedback. Let me know how you go.

There are 50 instances of the code, so if you’re #51, sorry.

Age of Conversation 2 kicks off

After a couple of posts where I’ve expressed frustration about the seeming inability of business and government to take advantage of social media, I thought I’d close off the week (it’s Friday afternoon here) with something a little more positive. As many of you know, I’m one of the many co-authors for the new edition of Age of Conversation. The theme of the 2008 edition is Why don’t people get it? – kind of apt given my posts this week…
Picture of cool guy sitting upside down in funky chair
Anyway, under the terms of our AoC agreement, we’re only allowed to post a snippet of what our chapter contains, so here’s mine:

There’s no better time than now to take up the challenge of being the evangelist for change in your organisation… Talk is cheap. Being the driver for conversation, collaboration and community is a risk.

I absolutely recommend you get out there and be the intrapreneur for your organisation. Be the person who is willing to talk about and drive change. Be the squeaky wheel. But have fun while you’re doing it.

Have a good weekend! Oh, and while you’re at it, check out the blogs (and likely chapter snippets) from my fellow AoC co-authors:

BarCamp Canberra #1 wrap

Welcome to BarCamp Canberra!!!

I think I speak for all of the Unorganisers when I say that BarCamp Canberra #1 was an unqualified success! We couldn’t be happier with the turnout, the quality of the talks, the feedback we’ve received and the enthusiasm to hold another BarCamp here in 2009.

Here are a few stats from the day:

  • in excess of 60 attendees (that’s an amazing turnout for somewhere as small as Canberra)
  • over 30 presentations on topics including web typography, GTD, open source, design and language
  • 156 photos and counting
  • several enthusiastic blog posts already – Stephen Dann, Gavin Jackson, Ruth Ellison and Steven Hanley
  • 30+ t-shirts handed out (if you were in the first 40 registrations, you were entitled to a t-shirt on the day, and if you were in the 41-55 bracket, there’s a t-shirt coming for you – make sure you let me know if you missed out)
  • a bunch of people introduced to the power of Twitter
  • 16 pizzas eaten
  • many Chupa-Chups and Arnotts Shapes consumed
  • 72 600ml bottles of water drunk
  • 32 people for the dinner afterwards
  • just two pieces of lost property – an Asus Eee PC power brick and a Nokia N95 belt pouch (if you own either of these, email me)

Personally, it was an incredibly fulfilling experience and I’m looking forward to being involved next time. As Canberra’s a small town, we’re probably a one BarCamp a year place. In the meantime, I’ll definitely be at any Australian BarCamp I can get to and might even try for the odd nearby international one…

275 voices. One idea.

Last year, Age of Conversation was a highly successful experiment in crowdsourced publishing. This year, the coordinators Drew McLennan and Gavin Heaton are at it again with the second edition; Age of Conversation: Why Don’t People Get It? I’m delighted to announce that I will be a contributor to the book.

iStock_000000329152Small.pngI hope that you’ll all read the book and enjoy the conversation being had there. Not to mention it supports a great cause – all proceeds from the book go to Variety, the Children’s Charity.

This time around there will be 275 (!!!) authors and we will be each providing a small piece for a chapter of the book. The complete author list is below and as you read through, you’ll notice there are a number of well known and highly regarded bloggers and commentators:
