Great read out this week by the always impressive David Kirkpatrick (@davidkonline) for Forbes:
He added a nice, updated package of research and meat to the subject of social media at work, including case studies and/or interviews with the likes of Salesforce.com, Adidas, Domino's, Zappos, ING, Ford, Rypple, Zaarly, and Yammer ... as well as management gurus Gary Hamel, Shoshana Zuboff.
He put forth the notion that social unrest in countries and regimes are early indicators of what is to come within companies. You heard it from me back in February in this post: Leadership Meet the New Revolutionaries: Your Employees.
Fear it, or embrace it, the choice is ours.
Advantage goes to the early mover.

What are some of the fresh stories you're hearing about companies who "get" this new transparent world ? Who is doing it right in the workplace?
If you were writing the book on this subject, what company case studies would you like to see added?
Thanks for joining the discussion.
Thanks also for tuning in after my long summer break. Where have I been? Remember summer vacations before you started working? The type where you could swim, bike ride, eat ice-cream, or hike all day if you wanted? Well, that's where I was since the end of June. My husband and I took the summer off (!) with our three kids. We played all day, every day. We were enjoying family warmth, love, and making memories in the un-Twitter zone.
