Are you ready for social software?

Cappuccino: When it comes to knowledge management and learning, "we may be witnessing the death throes of the command and control organization," according to Berkeley, California-based author and researcher Jay Cross. "The pendulum seems to be swinging from an institutional, top-down model to an individual, or bottom-up, model," he said. Learning, according to Cross, can be defined as optimizing the performance of your social network. You want to find information faster and cut out the less useful, or underperforming parts of your network. Social software makes this happen. "Reputation has to factor into it," he added. The eBay model for feedback may be relevant beyond the online auction business.

Weblogs, Inc is creating a new layer on top of traditional business-to-business media that:

1. saves professionals the time associated with reading dozens of trade publications by providing a non-stop, top-level summary of the news;
2. provides analytical tools that give readers the ability to sort and search stories by topics within an industry;
3. gives users the ability to participate by engaging in discussions, ranking stories and by submitting their own “blogs” (i.e., pointers and summaries of stories on other sites); and
4. promotes fairness and truth in reporting by acting as a public forum where industry professionals can participate.
