Abstract – Innovation is a key driver of organizational renewal and success. However, providing the right environment for innovative ideas to emerge and develop is not easy. This is further complicated by the fact that the professional environment is increasingly virtual as globally dispersed organizational and inter-organizational teams collaborate on innovative projects, making effective information and communication technologies indispensable.
While many organizations have knowledge management (KM) systems, most of these have not been developed with the aim of supporting theinnovation process, and many do not even succeed in their primary aim, i.e. supporting knowledge exchange, as they do not take into consideration the emotional, psychological and social needs of individuals. In order to address these issues, we have developed a video-based connection tool, InnoTube, which makes full use of social network ties and Web2.0 technologies to support collaborative innovation. InnoTube provides a showcase for innovation-related ideas and their inceptors, as well as proactively encourages the development of social connections and the brainstorming of cross functional globally dispersed teams. Results of a successful initial pilot study in the automobile industry are also presented.

Monday at lunch with Pradeep, YÃ© and Jessica we got onto the topic of “digital writing”. I thought I’d quickly document that fact – and give a link to one such system: LogitechÂ® ioâ„¢2 Digital Writing SystemÂ … of course the question ofÂ “is it a gadget” and “doesn’t this go against the KISS philosophy” come up, butÂ let’s consider this an open questionÂ for now. My idea: can this be integrated withÂ conceptÂ mapping software (like Cmap or FreeMind)? And, if it could be, is it worth it?
I have developed a simple prototype for creating organizational chart:
It is in development phase and require better way of editing nodes and the links on the fly.
Knowledge Map in flash ( very nice application.. ) I was searching for this kind of application in flash from long time.
There are other interesting links to visualize the social network

Thierry and Pradeep, and other technical gurus out there.
I was asking myself why searching for a file on my harddisk is so slow. I admit, it might be also full of â€¦ but, I mean, not as much garbage as on the Web!
So, why is Google so fast in finding there?
Just ultimately Impression Management?Â
