Lee, thanks for the comment you left on my site. I was taken aback for a moment, as my brother in law is Lee White, but he isn't interested in this stuff! :-) Then I hopped here to your site and see we share many interests in common.

You mentioned in your comment to me the ease at which some people have used Flickr to collaborate. I think it would be a great learning exercise to try and understand why and if the context is a key condition of success.

I think about the type of collaboration required in an internal team; the type for a cross organizational team; a voluntary CoP... they all have different conditions.

What we see in Flickr most reminds me of a CoP - voluntary and driven by people with curiosity, a passion for doing and learning.

So, does that mean we need to cultivate those passions as a prerequisite for successful collaboration practices. Then, dropping in tools might be a great catalyst??


Hi Lee - I recently saw a job ad for a Technology OD Director...As soon as I find it again, I will send it to you....
