Comment is Free

Declared a newspaper editor, at the turn of the last Century. Little could he have known that 100 years on , the press would be read online by millions and that comments, made by its readers, would increasingly become a clear indicator of the success – or not – of the content.

If you’re anything like me, it’s the articles, reviews and features that create the most discussion, that are the most interesting.

Whenever I log onto a news site, I’m drawn to the articles that have generated most comment. And more often than not, I’ll even skip to the comments section, before I’ve finished reading the full article.

The online Economist, ranks all articles according to the number of comments received. The print edition will give you a list of articles as they appear in the magazine. Read it online, however, and you will know at one glance that last week’s piece on Germany’s role in supporting the European economy received more than 1800 reactions, thoughts, ideas and suggestions from people all around the world.

Guess which article I read first?

Super Cool: See Who’s Hosting a WebEx Right Now via World Map

Ever wondered who’s on a WebEx? Here’s a look at global activity that’s refreshed every few minutes.

Click in and take a look. You will see the host’s location and how many people are participating in the meeting. Some people are even in a one-person meeting, which I imagine means they are recording content to share with others or post on their website.

WebEx Makes the World a Little Smaller

What I find amazing is how many people are video conferencing from very remote locations -- really shows the power of the Internet and how it allows for collaboration no matter where you are!

If you use WebEx, you can see the power of the WebEx network. If you are hosting a WebEx event or have a recorded WebEx posted that’s public, let us know. Send us a tweet @WebExEvents and we’ll retweet your information to our network.

If you haven’t tried WebEx yet, you can get a free trial and download WebEx mobile free (you need an account if you want to host from a mobile; attending is free).

The new transparency of business

Last week, I posted a blog called Innovation is key to becoming a ‘people-centric’ business which looked at Inclusion and Diversity from a customer perspective. The article argued that in order to succeed, businesses needed to become “customer centric” – looking at the world from their customers’ perspectives and identifying their customers’ problems and tensions. I’m pleased to see that the post has been very popular and has so far been viewed over 2,000 times! An interesting article in yesterday’s London Evening Standard looked at this idea of customer centricity from a different perspective. Read More »
