Hi Nancy, how have you been? I just came across your wonderful article via an interesting discussion on Harold Jarche's G+ post [1]. We've been talking about collective sensemaking and collaborative authoring in the context of some concerns from Harold on the usefulness of G+ for PKM. I'm involved in a "collaborative bookmaking" project [2] and some of your principles here will be very valuable! I also hope to apply some of my earlier thinking on micro-tasks and micro-roles here. Thanks for the detailed portrait of K&S, some great insights that I'll share with my friends at Change Agents Worldwide (a new venture in the making with a softer approach to Change Management [3]).

I was just thinking this morning on my subway ride reading the Ikaria article, "who in my network will pick this story up?".. and here it is! Thanks, Robert! It also talks about the importance of "social structure", ways to add meaning to life. I hope our virtual communities and conversations can achieve this (the "tribes" or "Islands" you mention), so we don't need to move..although, I'm now inclined to!

Thank you for your encouragement, Nancy! I know the Managment Innovation EXchange well and as it so happens, they just opened a new HBR/McKinsey M-Prize Challenge! Here's my submission, hope you and your readers can vote me up! http://www.mixprize.org/hack/filling-positions%E2%80%A6-matching%0B-roles
Hi Nancy, now you got me thinking... I've put together an interpretation here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1uk6YYsAHt0aLAED9KN3cCywsz8qcx_rM0BjKzzUaC6E/edit which meant to be brief, but then got longer and longer... enjoy!
Great reading, Nancy, as always! I was just looking at tasks as well, and how they relate to talent. If we were to marry those two in a networked organization (one that would allow for tasks to be more dynamic and "owned" based on the right skills), we'd be much better off as compared to the static HR competency frameworks that create ready-made boxes for positions. Here's my latest thinking on this: https://plus.google.com/u/0/100641053530204604051/posts/BHL3LRfd4Xr
Thanks, Nancy! I've just updated the model but unfortunately lost the above link. Here's the new one: https://plus.google.com/u/0/100641053530204604051/posts/DjzSDRxvoyx
I've been waiting for an update of the 3-era-KM model and here it is! Wonderful! It inspired an update of one of my models over at G+ https://plus.google.com/u/0/100641053530204604051/posts/GAg6VFoBY3P
How wonderful, Nancy. If you can get people to *dramatically* change their habits by changing the workplace configuration so that it enables "structured socialization" (interesting wordplay), then this can be a stepping stone towards enabling more conversations in a virtual space. We're not there yet, much has to be improved (including tools and skillsets - Luis Suarez and I just talked about Critical Thinking as one - http://www.elsua.net/2012/07/10/productivity-tips-on-presentations-inform-inspire-and-motivate/). Maybe soon the rest of the office space will transform into a Researcher's Square and separate offices become the exception. Soon, employees will think about how to remove the location boundaries from the square and open up the conversation to the outside world.

Thank you for this excellent summary, Bill. Wish I was there this time. On your last point "Make everyone a teacher", here's a chart I had put together earlier: https://plus.google.com/u/0/100641053530204604051/posts - this is a critical piece if you want to raise the collective knowledge of the organization.
