Whilst looking through various podcasts I came across an interesting an excellent one on called: traex.deÂ jazz funk trip hop music podcast, Â available atÂ i-tunes . This link gave me an opportunity to find the podcast producersÂ on the web at:Â traex.deÂ .
Whilst browsing through their front pageÂ itÂ suggested anÂ excellent video at: http://one.revver.com/watch/232656/flv
The site providesÂ embedded code that allows you to load the video on to your own web page so that others can view/share it.
In addition, I discovered Revver’s founder, Steven Starr. Interestingly he, like meÂ enjoys Askaninja podcasts!
The video features a singer, whose details can be found at:Â her myspace account.
Finally, I wanted to see if the director of the video had uploaded his video to YouTube. I typed in ‘MASAHIRO USHIYAMA’ into the search bar and was pleased to discover it. You can also find out about Earth Academy, who foster an iconoclastic global organisation of forward thinking creatives, who encourage & propagate progressive and ethical human progress,through inspirational art and positive focus.
Implications for Corporations
Before you watch and enjoy it, consider the potential power of following a similar trail of research inside a corporation’s knowledge management system.Â We would need to considerÂ taxonomy (the science of classification), i.e: whether the organisation’s knowledge management system has been structured effectively.
Another approach is to consider; Ontology – defined by wikipedia.org as analysing various types or modes of existence. Or,Â relationships within a domain.
There appears toÂ a common threadÂ between both computer science and philosophy, i.e:Â the representation of entities, ideas, and events, along with their properties and relations, according to a system of categories.
I belive that there is greatÂ potential for corporations to harness these relationships. This means that if internal systems could be more socially focused in terms of skills (e.g: more accessible skills databases that could provide virtual interviewing through competence and succession planning matching), people profiles (e.g:personal blog pages), sharing ideas (e.g: dedicated discussion sites/forums)Â and showcasing work (e.g:online publishing of department ideas), it couldÂ potentially lead toÂ greater corporate unity, improvement in communication flows and collaborative focus on developing new ideas. With regard to the latter, for example, sharing ideas around customer win strategies.
Now here is the video, enjoy!
