Hi Rob. As you know, I'm a fan of your book. Esther Dyson has been a huge advocate people taking control of their own health. She invests in technologies that enable an individual to do much of what you're writing about. You can see a good interview with her from a few years ago on this. I picked up this post from a new RSS notifier I have, so not sure you're written about her before, but thought I'd point it out.

THIS is the best news I have heard in a very long while! Congrats, and I am much more excited than Sameer! Plus, I give virtual hugs!
I just reposted this in the Council. The "human sea change" that is taking place that is taking place within the companies who are really doing this, really succeeding is inspirational. I've seen grown men get teary-eyed talking about how this is the most important thing they'll ever do professionally in their 20+-year careers in the way that they're changing the culture of their large, centuries-old institution. I know there are a lot of skeptics out there, but I have just learned to ignore them. Well, sometimes I comment on their blogs. :-) You're correct that not everyone will "get it" in a large enterprise, but not everyone has to. The innovators, the risk-takers, the bold thinkers do. And those are the ones who drive dramatic changes from within. The platforms are simply accelerating and giving lift and reach to the change agent's ideas. Enthusiasm is infectious.

Hi Chuck. Great to see you writing about this. We are all in - hook, line, sinker and big fish for Big Social Data too. Hope you've registered EMC for our Social Business Index? It will blow your mind. Coming to SXSW?

I've been giving this topic a lot of thought lately Rachel. Would love to convene a "roundtable" topic around this idea on site in Boston, perhaps? Moving to a more flat, self-organizing, fluid operating model for the largest organizations (not modeled on billable hours income), is more dream than vision today, sadly. Although, I LOVE the vision, don't misunderstand me. I was reminded of this recently when I read the Wired piece on Steve Jobs and the Apple culture. The parental model works really well, unfortunately. I will say, on behalf of the Council members, they're working really hard to introduce these changes. But it will be slow and quite possibly painful. Great post, though. Love it.
Simply superb post. Love it. The future of social success inside the enterprise hinges on getting what you've suggested right. A+
Make sure to check out The 2.0 Adoption Council too... We have several Newsgator and SharePoint customers.
Thanks for this feedback, Michael. I agree with everything you've written here. The good news is the sector is expanding and maturing. Lots to think about for Santa Clara and next year in Boston. The problem with expanding the conversation to include the external/social space is the filter/noise ratio among those who are seeking specific answers to narrow questions. As always, very interested to hear input on your ideas. Thanks.

Great post, as usual, Sig. This is the song the e20 crowd is singing. Maybe not always in harmony; maybe sometimes out of tune... but the song sheet has become a bit of an anthem for change. Interested in joining the choir? :-)
Great post, Michael. More of these. :-)
