Welcome to SpreadingScience
We are going to be transitioning to a new look.
Until that is done, please ignore the pounding and the jackhammers.
Our new project
We were one of two fully funded projects out of twenty-four in the #CrowdGrant Challenge sponsored by Popular Science and RocketHub. Our project will create the tools to investigate how we might change people’s minds from a negative to a positive view of the future by using a parable called “How the Asteroid Saved Mankind.” What we have learned in successfully leading the research project will be incorporated into a series of future projects.
We facilitate the rapid diffusion of innovative information throughout an organization by leveraging social networks.
One of the ways we do this is by using Web 2.0 tools. Web 2.0 approaches map very closely to the important structures that are human social networks. This allows us to examine and optimize these networks, moving creative solutions rapidly through an organization and reducing the social friction that so often makes an organization unable to adapt to changing situations.
Web 2.0 is about collaborations and conversations, leveraging human social networks into the digital realm and permitting difficult problems to be solved.
We help organizations succeed with their internal and external conversations, accelerating the transformation of tacit information from inside the heads of employees into explicit information that is available to all.
