John, as always, great analysis and insight. I'm optimistic that the time is right for the ideas you offer to take root on a broad scale. In conversations with people ranging from my sailing buddies to academics from technology institutes in Germany, there is agreement that work is becoming more flexible and with a greater demand for personal innovation. People are seeing that human, technology, & institutions provide the building blocks and that we must push forward with transparency, responsibility, and growth (I'm trial ballooning my book proposal here). ...and I'm seeing entrepreneurs begin to build the tools to support these new forms of work. We have the tools and broad motivation - in the past we may have only had the motivation from the grass roots -- the time seems right.
Can't say it's a form - but a new approach. Rypple (recently acquired by Salesforce, founded by Stanford GSBers) takes the "check-in" gesture and turns it towards performance feedback. I did an overview for GigaOM using some of Jeff Pfeffer's quotes:
Thanks for this. I didn't get to go to the Boston version and instead followed along on Twitter. This overview was a big help.

I'm obligated to open with Go Bears! ..even this season... Great set of ideas. College football has gotten away from being about college and tradition. My biggest gripe is that the Rose Bowl isn't the Rose Bowl anymore -- BCS intervention focused on $$$ as you note. Might as well go back to chariot races (yes, they did that in the early years). Yes, let's reset the goals and then align the organizations to match.
I'm going to be sharing this with colleagues on both side of the academic/industry fence. ...actually has a Thanksgiving theme too!

Thank you, Tracy! I've been meaning to write a letter to Wired on this very issue. Sometimes they'll give us the reference, other times it's something like "researchers at Harvard found" or "as published in [journal name] -- but no direct reference or credit to the individual authors. I take my students to task for lack of cites, both because they need to give credit and for their own knowledge management.
