A week in Tweets: 19-25 December 2010

Link: http://weblog.tomgraves.org/index.php/2010/12/26/tweetweek-19dec/

A somewhat smaller collection of Tweets and links this time – mainly because people are heading off into their various holiday-seasons, I guess. Same categories as usual, though, preceded by the usual ‘Read more…’ link.

A back-and-forth on the relationship between business-architecture and IT, led by Pat Ferdinandi (@thoughttrans):

  • thoughttrans: IT may enable part of the #bizarch it isn’t part of the #bizarch // is it possible for people to talk about #bizarch without talking about IT?
  • chrisdpotts: @thoughttrans Re: #bizarch and IT:  IT pervades markets, stimulates people’s enterprise, and is deeply integral to being a business // ….yet we can indeed talk about #bizarch without specifically mentioning IT! #entarch

  • chrisdpotts: RT @thoughttrans: @chrisdpotts #bizarch should not be designed around IT | me: Sure. Instead, your Brand(s), Service, Products & Services.

Narrative-knowledge, knowledge-management, creativity, leadership and in-person collaboration:

Social-media, ‘enterprise 2.0’, user-experience and related themes in online-collaboration:

IT-architecture, IT-development, IT-systems and the like:

Society, culture, economics, corporate social responsibility and suchlike matters:

  • SAlhir: Power, an emergent property of energy. Focus on the source versus the property itself.
  • SAlhir: Culture is… A source of identity, innovation, and creativity. // A set of distinctive spiritual & material, intellectual & emotional features of a society or a social group. // A complex web of meanings, relationships, beliefs, & values that frames people’s relationship to the world. // Acquired through process of cultivation &improvement of individual, especially by means of education. // An evolving dynamic force relevant to all societies, local or global. // Influenced by and in turn influences world-views and expressive forms. // Located in time & place…a set of mental constructs, rooted in place at moment in history & is always local. // renewable resource if carefully nurtured for it 2grow&flower. When neglected, it is easily lost /destroyed. http://bit.ly/aqCHAN
  • tetradian: @SAlhir: “Culture is… rooted in place at moment in history” – yes, but often not in the *present* place and time – hence many problems…
