American Bar Association - Defending Liberty, Pursuing Justice Dell Blogging: Idea Storm to Employee Storm | Social Media Online Share this article with your friends... Dell targeted around 80,000 employees working with them. Their aims seemed to be the changing of the culture of work inside the company regarding ‘email’ and deal with the tools in social media which are generally popular. The two parts to the plan included: 1) Blogs: The internal blog zones were created which were based on initial blogs situated externally of Dell.

The Idea Storm was followed by Employee Storm which was created in June 2007 with a gap of 4 months. Each of the eight control centers was responsible for doing various important tasks.

NosDéputé : Observatoire citoyen de l'activité parlementaire Political Database of the Americas - Georgetown University e-petitions: the first 100 days Last Saturday marked 100 days since the new e-petitions service was launched by GDS and the Office of the Leader of the House of Commons. The service continues to be incredibly popular -on average 18 people have signed an e-petition every minute since the service started. e-petitions also maintains a very high social and mainstream media profile, with significant television and press coverage, especially when a petition nears or reaches the 100,000 signatures threshold required to trigger a debate in Parliament.

Surveillance literally means (in French) “to watch from above.” As leaders in the field such as David Lyon remind us: Surveillance is not simply about large organizations using sophisticated computer equipment. One important form of negotiation and resistance has been a movement known as sousveillance. Surveillance connotes a kind of systematic omniscient “eye-in-the-sky” (God's eye view) by authoritarian, though human, eyes and architectures. Surveillance often requires secrecy and panopticism (Bentham’s fancy word used to describe a centralized optical system that ensured total transparency in one direction and zero transparency in the other direction). While Steve is optimistic that such an equilibrium can be achieved, Ian expresses more ambi-veillance. II. III. 1. 2. 3. IV. V. So lets talk! Trackback Pings
