The Great Social Computing Experience

July 31, 2006

Last week, IBM held the Idea Innovation Jam to develop ideas to move our company ahead. Included were all employees, their family and business partners. This was at least our 7th such jam over the years and it resulted in 75,000 people enrolled in the Jam; close to 28,000 ideas have been posted; and more than 2 million page views have been tallied.

We get dinged all the time for not being as hip as other companies, not being first (or best) to blog, but this is one heckuva participation in social computing. Along with our ever growing blogs and podcasts, I’d say we are making progress in this space.

Since I mentioned podcasting, I’ve combined with the communications team (ok they did the heavy lifting, Colleen and Stacy) but we’re starting an analyst podcast series called – Analyst Input and Outtakes.

I hope to have more analysts participate in the near future. I’m looking for likely candidates with an opinion on the industry, IBM or the competition….you know who you are.
