I am working with a group of talented and respected leaders, most of whom have not worked with technologies such as forums, discussion groups, blogs, wikis, communities of practice platforms, etc. They have an online space in which they are starting to post some questions, comments and resources.
Several have asked me what makes a post valuable or meaningful. I thought it only fair to ask some of my virtual colleagues for their views, so I asked via twitter (@4KM) and CPSquare Thanks to Barb McDonald, Brenda Kaulback, Brian J. McNely, Christina Merl, Jas Darrah, Jenny Mackness, John D. Smith, Joitske Hulsebosch, Sibylle Noras, Tony Burgess (also Nancy Dixon and his CompanyCommand colleagues), VMaryAbraham and others who may join this conversation in the future.
The attached file — meaningful-posts — is my effort to synthesize and quote their ideas.
