I’ve been in Lisboa at SocialNow 2013.
It’s a unique format event, the brainchild of Ana Neves, wherein social tool vendors present their products to a to the senior management (expert panel) of a fictitious company (CableInc) in the presence of an interested audience.
Here are my favourite tweets:
- Manuel Pinhão

- Phil Hill
@philahill 19 Apr surely the role of the new leader is the gathering and shepherding of looser networks, rather than the traditional leader role?

@AnaDataGirl 19 Apr “we need tools that enable cooperative work, but most of them today enable collaboration” @stoweboyd

@driessen 19 Apr Remember: for every new communication tools the managers will say ‘people will only use them for gossip’

@daverage 19 Apr One of the biggest changes social tools have brought is switching from push, to pull. @stoweboyd

@pedrocustodio 18 Apr “ @carvalhop: Everyone is trying to kill email at #SocialNow” indeed, shouldn’t we get over it and embrace it as part of whatever solution? Pedro Custódio @pedrocustodio 19 Apr @spreadd shows that we better off with work tools that play along our processes than the ones trying to change the way we work
- Stowe Boyd
@stoweboyd 18 Apr Baking your organizational structure into the information you want to share is a terrible idea #socialnow even if its in an open source tool
- Bruno Figueiredo
@BrunoFigueiredo 18 Apr When you design to accomodate all edges you lose focus from the center. The center is where 95% of your customers are. Bruno Figueiredo The best tools are the ones who remove the burden of choice for the user and present him with thoughtful defaults.
And a few tweets from me:
@stoweboyd idea of future archetypes compelling. World of tomorrow: Freelancers, Generalist, Followers and Cooperators

I love the idea of ‘the watercooler’ page recognising the importance of it as the meeting point for serendipitous conversations @spreadd – an activity tracker that creates profiles of workers with tags (wordle).
