FinNode Studies Successful Enterprise 2.0 Collaboration Strategies

This is a very long video but it contains good thoughts. BTW we wrote a book for WSOY already 5 years ago in my discussion group. It was done completely virtually - some of us have never have met in real life.

What Facebook is for

What do you think, is this a good video for showing what FB really is? ;)

Social Media Training (Twitter & FB)

I'm preparing for next week's trainings and found this. I like the way the Twitter features were presented but the FB part is very short.

Uudet urat @ Keski-Suomi

Sorry for the Finnish title but can't help it. Uudet urat (new careers) is a portal hosted by Keski-Suomen liitto (the association for Central Finland). It was launched yesterday (read the press release in Finnish) and there was a workshop also for the users including me. Possible contents in the portal are e.g. opportunities for employment, entrepreneurship and education as well as questions related to unemployment.

I would have hoped to see more content in the portal already before the launch since it is always so difficult to start contributing from scratch. To see all you need to log in but already before that you can see something. There's e.g. a group for Mattilanniemen osaajat and a blog by Jouni Hynynen. Let's hope that many people will find a new career from the portal.

Did You Know 3.0

Interesting information in this video:

A Second Life Primer @SlideShare

The other day I created my first SlideShare presentation for my wiki. Now I needed a new presentation about Second Life (the one I used last time was too long) and tried SlideShare instead of YouTube and found this. I like this a lot:

Building a community @ Web2.0 seminar

I'm still alive even though the blogs has been quite quiet...

So what's up?

First of all I've been working with my wiki (Mini treasures wiki) which is the one and only dollhouse wiki in English (okay okay, there's one other but it is about a television program not about our hobby). I haven't sort of published it yet, only told to some friends but the word has spread and I keep getting hits from all over the world which is nice of course. But before announcing it officially I need more content and more contributors which is a tough job - starting a community from scratch.

That was a reason I participated Inforte Web2.0 seminar last week. The theme of the seminar was How to build a successful online community? The aim of the seminar was to present recent advances from research organizations and companies related to the area of Web 2.0 and social media. A special focus of the seminar was on developing successful online communities and promoting user participation and content creation.

I really enjoyed the presentations and got very good ideas, also from the audience - thank you all, you inspired me.

I also kept my first "Social media @ work" training for Lappeenranta Technical University in the end of last month (in Lahti) and I will continue with this training among my colleagues in Nokia Jyväskylä during the coming weeks.

This is the training ad:

Social media @ work (3 hours)

Social media (or web2.0) is a hot topic. Web2.0 services are used more and more for the communication outside the office but how should it be used in the office? What are the benefits and challenges? The training introduces some of the services and gives ideas for the usage.

- Communities
- Net generation’s way of working
- Collaboration principles
- Social media @ IBM
- Social media @ Nokia (Wikis, Blogs, RSS, RSS Readers)
- Other social media services (MashUps, Microblogs, Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, Deliciuos, Second Life)
