Chris Anderson (the longtail) interview about his upcoming book

Inside organizations, we have the longtail of ideas and information that needs to be connected to people, places, and things.

Making Meaning in the Organization

If you know our site, you know our mantra is "ideas are everywhere". With this in mind, making meaning constantly evolves. We use our own tools to connect, engage, and share ideas and information.  So everybody - meaning scales - is tied into the concentric circles (individual, team, group, department, division, organization, and outside)  of emergent thinking to make meaning. Through this connectedness of meaning the organization performs better and leaves little doubt about what needs to be done.
