Conversation Agent - Valeria Maltoni - Six Front Page Stories and the Future

« iRobot Creations and Our Fascination with Robotics | Main | Talk to Me/Them! »


Trisha -- the ways in which we will use these tools will be different and (hopefully) complimentary to face to face interaction. As I will discuss in my next post, talk is important. Overlapping goals -- now that is an innovative thought!

Steve -- capturing the stories and the common threads will be a way to go. As in my example of Independents Hall, having a way to relate to each other is important to productivity and energy.

Mario -- interestingly enough, one of the reports that caught my attention on the IFF site (library) is about contextual awareness. Now that I'm back in technology I am eager to learn more about applications and impacts.

Re New Commons:
What a great way to put it. There is perhaps too much knowledge out there now. With intelligence companies galore, white papers to the ceiling, blogs, and other info channels....there really is an ocean out there. The great part is that people can educate themselves so they can then share with others or perhaps become more informed prospective customers. But people have time constraints, so they need experts to filter the common knowledge available to what's relevant to the unique contextual environment.


Just got back from a corporate meeting which actually morphed into a conversation about how best to enable virtual teams.

They are really trying to get at the best way to build a Participatory Culture of people who are scattered around the globe.

I'm thinking the map will look really good on one of the office walls!
