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. This ideation by Dell has remained a major way of giving individual attention as the internal blogs would be more relevant to the employees. 2) Employee Storm: It has been a model after the successful Idea Storm by Dell. In September 2006 the new ideas were put into action and in July 2007 its popularity rocketed with five blogs in some regions and business useful displays appearing in 7 languages. 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.

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. There isn’t much of a pattern in terms of traffic to e-petitions on a day to day or week to week basis, with the range of daily visitor numbers to the site fluctuating between 2,000 and 350,000.

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
