The Master List of the Collaborative Economy: Rent and Trade Everything
My next Open Research report (see my body of research) will be about the Rise of the Collaborative Economy. If you’d like to be interviewed for this upcoming report, please fill out this submission form. In my career as an analyst, I often list all the players in a category, announce a formal research effort, then publish a series of analyses, as part of my continuing methodology. In this case I will also be presenting my findings as a speaker at LeWeb, whose theme, “Digital Hippies” is directly related to this trend. Thanks to friend Loic Lemeur for triggering this idea. [Collaborative Economy Defined: A digital system that manages the coordination of buyers and sellers who offer or exchange used products and remnant services] [Market impact: These startups enable the crowd to get what they need from each other –rather than go to corporations] The Three Categories of Collaborative Economy Markets Within this market, there are multiple use scenarios.

30+ Cool Content Curation Tools for Personal & Professional Use As the web becomes more and more inundated with blogs, videos, tweets, status updates, news, articles, and countless other forms of content, “information overload” is something we all seem to suffer. It is becoming more difficult to weed through all the “stuff” out there and pluck out the best, most share-worthy tidbits of information, especially if your topic is niche. Let’s face it, Google definitely has its shortcomings when it comes to content curation and the more it tries to cater to all audiences, the less useful it becomes. The demand for timely, relevant content that is specific to our unique interests and perspectives has given rise to a new generation of tools that aim to help individuals and companies curate content from the web and deliver it in a meaningful way. These new tools range from simple, application-specific types such as social media aggregators and discovery engines, to more complex, full-blown publishing solutions for organizations. Comments(65)

The Dirt on Editorial Calendars The world loves a scandal. And there was never more satisfying scuttlebutt than that surrounding the gossip-mongers at News of the World. While the rest of the world is giggling over the guy who tried to “pie” Rupert Murdoch, I have been writing this blog and imagining what was on the News of the World’s editorial calendar. From the scenarios I’ve read, it might have looked something like this: (click image to enlarge) Of course, editorial calendars are not just for questionable news organizations. Calendaring: It’s not as easy as you think Editorial calendars seem easy enough. Unfortunately, the chances of somebody else’s calendar template being exactly what you need are slim-to-none. Start by defining a purpose It sounds like common sense, but the first step toward a successful editorial calendar is defining why you’re creating it. When identifying purpose, don’t forget to think about: Who is going to use the calendar and why? Pick and prioritize calendar variables One last word of advice

Le Co-Lab | Coopération, co-opétition, collaboration, co-opportunité, économie collaborative, co-management, Co-Révolution… KesaCO? vive la corévolution ! Cet ouvrage montre en quoi le phénomène collaboratif influence profondément nos organisations (groupes humains, associations, collectivités, mouvement politique, entreprises, etc.). L’émergence du Web participatif facilite la mise en réseau et encourage la transparence des échanges : cette logique imprègne peu à peu notre façon de penser, d’agir, de consommer (mouvement de “consommation collaborative” qui nous incite à covoiturer, cotravailler, “louer citoyen”, etc.), mais aussi d’entreprendre (dépasser la logique de compétition), de militer et de manager. Qualifiée de “radicale” par certains hommes d’affaires américains convaincus de l’urgence de travailler en bonne intelligence pour construire le monde durable de demain, la collaboration peut renouveler nos façons de faire à différents niveaux de la société. En le faisant passer du “moi” au “nous”, la corévolution donne un autre espace de déploiement concret au développement durable. Paru le 23 mai 2012

Top 40 Influencers For The Networked and Collaborative Economy Today’s business isn’t like yesterday’s. With global powers changing and the transforming workforce, which is spearheaded by changing demographics and emerging technology, the way we live, engage, and work is drastically different. Through technologies such as cloud computing, mobility, and social media, the digital world of 2014 is even more of a global village than what Marshall McLuan experienced and anticipated in the media convergence of the 1960s. Personally, we use Amazon, which is a network of merchants providing goods. This connected life transcends from our personal lives and consumer behaviors, and into enterprises where businesses are integrating the use of social and business networks to connect and collaborate with those outside their physical location. It’s the Networked Economy. Networked Economy Jeremiah Owyang - Jeremiah is a former industry analyst, and currently a speaker and a family man.

PowWowHR | Human Resource Management for the Modern Enterprise Le blog de ShaREvolution: Lancement du 11 février : retour sur l’atelier “Motivations, freins, usages de la consommation collaborative” Les études autour des usages de la consommation collaborative se multiplient depuis quelques années. Focus sur « les pratiques collaboratives » pour l’Ademe, intérêt pour les « consommations émergentes » du côté de l’Obsoco,… toutes ne recouvrent pas le même périmètre de pratiques, et peu encore font plus que de s’intéresser à la « photographie » des motivations et usages, en allant jusqu’à analyser les trajectoires d’usages des individus. C’est une des ambitions de ShaREvolution que d’aller « creuser » de ce côté-ci, en ramenant de l’inattendu, de nouvelles connaissances des usages. Une étude sur les usages (dont le protocole est encore en cours de construction) sera ainsi menée au cours du premier semestre 2014, permettant d’aller tester un certain nombre d’hypothèses. Un atelier sur le sujet était organisé à l'occasion du lancement de l'expédition, le 11 février 2014.

L’économie collaborative, un vocabulaire nouveau de A à Z !

Digital Writing Tools I have assembled a collection of tools which break the mold of traditional writing and use the power of the digital medium to create multimodal, interactive texts.

These tools move beyond just digitizing words and pictures, pushing digital writing to more creative levels. Add Movement and Scale: Prezi – – if you are stuck in the serial, linear model that writing in a word processor or presentation tool can create, try using the presentation tool Prezi to write a story. The Blank Canvas: The New Hive – – Use words, pictures, video, audio, and hyperlinks on a blank canvas to create a story. Create a Multiple Pathway Game Based Text: Playfic – a site to create and play interactive fiction, text based games.
