Update: Part 2, responses to comments here. "What is a friend?" This question is constantly echoing across the internet.
Years ago, in the early 90s, I remember watching a video of a Tom Peters’ sweat and rant business guru session, where he wandered about a floor of anxious senior managers clustered around circular tables (anxious because he might ask them a question that could expose their unfitness to manage their organisations, and senior because only a senior manager could justify the cost of the ticket). His style was to ask rhetorical questions in a quiet voice, answer them himself in a loud, scornful voice, and then cascade his audience with information about successful companies and entrepreneurs scavenged by his army of researchers, that happened to fit his latest theme. Tom Peters’ topic this time was innovation and he said something profound and unexpected, to the effect that the real innovators in the business world were not in the room, this day. That the real innovators are out there, innovating, because they have to do it. They cannot choose to do it, they have to do it.

We are also providing this doc as an MSWord file , and another Word file [PDFs forthcoming] that contains the "Top 50 Have Yous" from our 12.03.07 post .) A 2007 letter from John Hennessy, president of Stanford University, to alumni laid out his long-term "vision" for that esteemed institution.
Harold Jarche recently offered a framework for social learning in the enterprise in which he draws from a range of colleagues (Jay Cross, Jane Hart, George Siemens, Charles Jennings, and Jon Husband, all members of the Internet Time Alliance ) to outline how the concept of social learning relates to the large-scale changes facing organizations as they struggle to manage how people share and use knowledge. Harold’s overall framework comes down to the following insight, Individual learning in organizations is basically irrelevant because work is almost never done by one person.

A genizah (or geniza ; Hebrew : גניזה "storage"; plural: genizot or genizoth or genizahs ) [ 1 ] is the store-room or depository in a Jewish synagogue (or cemetery), usually specifically for worn-out Hebrew-language books and papers on religious topics that were stored there before they could receive a proper cemetery burial, it being forbidden to throw away writings containing the name of God (even personal letters and legal contracts could open with an invocation of God). In practice, genizot also contained writings of a secular nature, with or without the customary opening invocation, and also contained writings in other Jewish languages that use the Hebrew alphabet ( Judeo-Arabic , Judeo-Persian , Judeo-Spanish , Yiddish ). This custom also included the periodic solemn gathering of the contents of the geniza, which were then buried in the cemetery or "bet ḥayyim."
