Effective engagement is a multi-dimensional mesh challenge

I like the IBM Smart City initiatives but I am not sure that Smart Cities is the best connectivity metaphor for engagement with organisations and individuals. Picture credit: vaXzine on Flickr

The premise that geography always implies mutuality of interest belongs to the Town Directories of the Victorian era.

In the 21st Century connectivity is founded upon multi-dimensional meshes of relationships.

Every organisation and individual is simultaneously engaged in multiple relationships so that’s a very serious clue as to how we should design and build our engagement models.

:mrgreen: Too many though are making things harder by clinging to outdated worldviews.
