Internet users around the world have come together to shape a new agenda for how we share and collaborate online. This week, OpenMedia is launching a study called Our Digital Future: A Crowdsourced Agenda for Free Expression that draws on input from over 300,000 people in 155 countries around the globe. Together with a broad network of civil society organizations and experts, these concerned citizens have weighed in on how we can create sensible copyright rules that support free expression in our digitally connected era.
Hanging out with other humans is what humans like to do best. And, we have hundreds of ways and places to do it. So, it is strange that so many organizations have dreadful intranets that make hanging out as easy as a shoe-fitting at a mermaid convention.
For many companies, intranets are nothing more than PDF graveyards. Even organizations that pride themselves on collaboration have internal web spaces with no place for discussion, sharing or creating together.
