Cool Technology of the Week

As part of the Harvard Clinical and Translational Science Awards, we've built a number of social networking tools while also leveraging components built by others such as NetAge.

These tools typically work by analyzing collaborators on publications, co-PIs on grant funding, and subject matter interests.

A possibly more precise way to identify networks and communities is by analyzing email traffic patterns - senders, receivers and subjects. A novel social networking tool from Metasight called Morphix, does this.

MetaSight Communities of Interest and Communities of Relationships are web applications which can be implemented as standalone applications or integrated with a corporate portal or intranet.

The tools work by automatically analysing e-mail subject titles and recipients. Personal, private and confidential e-mails are excluded.

Per the Metasight website, social networking applications of this analysis include:

Innovation- Facilitate connections between communities that are separated by function, department, or location

Communities of Practice - Proactively include interested staff in communities, and identify new community practice areas

Relationships with customers, partners and suppliers - Make relationships visible and network with colleagues around external business relationships

Team formation - Search for team members who have key skills or networks

Internal communications -Create distribution lists based on interest in topics or external relationships

Succession planning - Build knowledge and relationship profiles of individuals can be used to support knowledge and relationship transfer

Expertise location - Automatically maintain profiles of staff knowledge and relationships

Mergers & Acquisitions - Use maps of expertise and relationships of each party to accelerate integration

Litigation support - Quickly identify who is involved from internal and external relationships

Analyzing connectedness in organizations based on who emails whom and what they email about. That's cool!

Thanks John,

We have been using social technology for a while in the HC sector, and see lots of exciting and growing communities. Hearing from a doctor's perspective like you is amazing and interesting.

Thanks again for sharing,

Eric

Enjoyed links to some of the new technology and thought I would share one of my own. There were no links to knowledge networking software. My favorite is an open-source Intranet platform called Jumper (www.jumpernetworks.com). I think this will be an emerging Web 2.0 technology and has tremendous promise for clinical research.

Weekends to peopleig2tmean that they can have a two-day wowgold4europe good rest. For example, people gameusdcan go out to enjoy themselves or get meinwowgoldtogether with relatives and friends to talk with each storeingameother or watch interesting video tapes with the speebiewhole family.
Everyone spends agamegoldweekends in his ownmmoflyway. Within two days,some people can relax themselves by listening to music, reading novels,or watchingogeworld films. Others perhaps are more active by playing basketball,wimming ormmorpgvipdancing. Different people have different gamesavorrelaxations.
I often spend weekends withoggsalemy family or my friends. Sometimes my parents take me on a visit to their old friends. Sometimesgamersell I go to the library to study or borrow some books tommovirtexgain much knowledge. I also go to see various exhibition to broadenrpg tradermy vision. An excursion to seashore or mountain resorts is my favorite way of spending weekends. Weekends are always enjoyable for me.
