  • “The most ominous of fallacies–the belief that things can be kept static by inaction.” –Freyda Stark

    So, now television broadcasters are blocking Google TV from getting access to the content they’re putting online. They want to make sure they don’t lose their advertising dollars. News flash: The cat is out of the bag. All information (including your precious television shows) are nothing more than bits on one network to rule them all — the Internet.

  • Section for employees, another for managers
    (tags: telework)
  • Sears describes their “shop social” section, “check out our new beta social shopping site where you can follow fellow shoppers, see ratings & reviews, create a public profile, and get everything you want easier and quicker than ever before.” It also appears Sears has updated their logo – don’t worry though, it’s not as crappy as the Gap Box logo that infected the Internet earlier this month.

    My guess is that we will see Sears signup popular bloggers and/or celebrities to create profiles on the “shop social” service. I had a look at one of the top users – she’s Like’d nearly 250 items and dis’d about 50 (links don’t work to user profiles).

  • At Mulvaney's B&L,1215 19th Street
    Sacramento, California 95811
  • Today, we know Yammer as the opposite of a flash-in-the-pan service, sitting pretty with more than 90,000 customer companies and organizations — amounting to 1 million users in 135 countries using its information network. In an interview with Mashable, Founder and CEO David Sacks explains how Yammer’s attracted a client base that includes more than 80% of the Fortune 500.
  • Visual and Digitisation Services Team at the Powerhouse Museum that includes: Photography, The Image Resource Centre, The Photo Library and Rights and Permissions and Audio Visuals. We are part of the larger Digital Social & Emerging Technologies group at the Museum. I am responsible for managing the digital collections to the highest standard whilst coordinating photographic and AV projects for exhibitions, publications, events and the website. I manage a blog for the Museum called Photo of the Day as well as manage the Museum’s Flickr accounts and groups.

    • How have you been implementing Web 2.0 tools within your organisation?
    "My teams have been using social media platforms such as Flickr, YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Vimeo for a while now and run a number of public facing blogs, through WordPress, here at the Museum in an attempt to engage with our audiences in new ways, start conversations and share the stories about what our audience are doing with our collections."
