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
Richard Gayle is hosting a workshop at the Pacific Symposium on Biocomputing in early January 2015. As an experiment, we are trying to see if we can conver the travel costs of one of the speakers that has been invited. Feel free to help support the effort and become part of the community.
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.
The information column to the far right of this webpage has some links to more information dealing with innovations and how they are adopted by a community.
