Starts tomorrow: get up, get out, get moving….
When it comes down to it, if migrating with new networks onto new software, it can to a certain extent be as simple as
How do I find the people I was doing stuff with now and how can I find the people who I don’t know existed but we can explore doing stuff together.
Because finding docs and pieces of work is useful but what will keep me coming back.is knowing that I’m not alone in a new universe
Trying to put into a few areas ahead of a discussion here tomorrow
- disconnected – weak tie – biuld strong tie – relationship – do nothing – do something bad – disconnected
- identify where existing relationships are – emerging communities, pre-existing relationships
- relationship success planning – what happens to knowledge when communities change/die, where does knowledge in organisations go
- google circles, maintain relationships so if leave a community, don’t disconnect all network ties?
- disconnect between business results and what community is able to represent, what key business objectives focusing on for CRN
- what is going to change in the short term that you can’t control – build strategy around that
- it’s not just about the organisation, it’s about you – interviews – what elements interesting for community members and potential members
- human faces
- contrast and concrete – colour & icons not words e.g. FB icon, what is trending now
- social proofing, cohesion, comparison – polls and instant show of results
- experts and bloggers to contribute content
- stories – 12 steps – check link
- culture – 6 dimensions slideshare below
- community requests and CRNCC support
- facilitator support
- engagement, connection fatigue support
- community lifecycle and death support
The article from the Telegraph about the Hospital Episode Statistics data being sold today is just another careless punch into the lives of people who care about other people (not health academics who care more about data than people by using connectivist rhetoric that people are data). It is another part of the narrative of oppression and in this case privatisation of the NHS in which the Telegraph is fully complicit in supporting the dictatorship. It is only a few days since the thinking pause in care data was announced at a time when more but not enough people had heard about the implications of their health data being put into databases and what might happen to it and with this knowledge the Telegraph produces an article about how other health data is being sold. The right wing ideology reigns supreme in newspapers today and not for the first time with this corrupt coalition
we’ve done this so there’s nothing you can do about it, so be quiet and stop thinking
I had a long chat with a nice man yesterday who feel completely powerless living in the UK. Thanks to doctors like Dr Bhatia, the National Health Action Party, MedConfidential some people do feel they had some power to make a decision. So, nice try but it won’t work this time – more people are waking up, thinking and acting. We want a National Health Service in the UK and we’re going to carry on fighting for every bit of it, regardless of what the papers and some politicians from the three main parties say.
Please excuse all the typos etc from yesterday, the majority of posts were from my phone in portrait mode – no freudian typing for a change though. So reflections now are:
This was a great day, lots of chatting before and after beautifully delivered sessions, everyone really interested in learning from each other, well done and thanks to Feverbee for continuing to inspire online community thinking.
Scalabilty of communities, social may help to do more with less but not good enough – only so much you can scale
Technology to help you scale is highly commoditized.Typical social metric is spike then goes away.
Ppl don’t think about sustainability don’t know future. Need scalable and sustainable. Have to acquire attention then acquire again – continual. Engage and enlist others to acquire more.
Engagement difficult ? No – cute puppies, kittens, sustained engagement is difficult – strong relationship. Every relationship starts up disconnected, not born.
Disconnected – create weak tie – build strong tie - relationship - do nothing – do something bad – Disconnected
Communities have common interest across social network (pre-existing interpersonal relationships) and social network is not what holds you together.
Pre-existing relationships developed from communities.
Can shift time/attention but total amount remains same.
FB irony – to maintain strong ties, will demand more attention, weaker ties then harder to turn into stronger ties.
