NEW MOBILITY AGENDA/GETTING AROUND

WEB, BLOGS & SUPPORTING SOCIAL MEDIA

When it comes to the multiplicity of internet sites and media that together make up the at-times somewhat labyrinthine New Mobility Agenda, there is a certain if not always immediately app[rent underlying logic in our gameplan.  Here in summary how things look today in the hope that it will help you make better use of the considerable potential of these tools. in your work.

To support the various dedicated website and blogs, we also try to being in social media. Twitter we nominally use but still have not found the hook. Facebook has its uses but it is close to zero when it comes to context and less than that for depth of coverage.  More,  one important job it does not handle is to provide a searchable repository not only of messages but also shared documents and threads of discussions. For that reason we try to make sure that for each Facebook group, there is a parallel YahooGroups Forum that is available to provide at least a workable approximation of  this shared, searchable  database function.

In all cases, the moderator ensures that the discussions rigorously keep to the focus of the group in the knowledge that everyone is short on time.  In several cases the original web sits have not been entirely kept up to date. This is noted in each instance.

Here is how things stand on our principal projects  on this sunny late October day in Lyon:

  1. Yikes, what a list! I don’t know how you keep track of them all. It seems to me there’s some overlap in the ones that you’re directly involved in. But nevertheless, thanks, Eric.
