Social Intelligenc and IST 2006 Helsinki

There was a reason for me to write about Social Intelligence at the IST 2006 Helsinki event. We spoke a lot about open innovation and co-creation. There were hopes about new projects within the Fp7 framework. Lots of emails were exchanged, projects were prepared, the idea was to promote advances of micro companies. But we just got started.

However, this has been doing and learning. A lot has changed in 1½ year. Flickr, Google Apps, Web 2.0, Social Media, Facebook, Twitter, Jaiku, Ning, you name it. Collaboration on a global scale is easier than ever, but we are still in Europe very restricted to projects within national borders.

The languages are differentiating and separating us. Culture is also imposing barriers to collaboration. Evolution is slower than expected and anticipated. But we got started, we learned to know new people, and the process can continue at any time.
