What distinguishes GitHub are its built-in social networking functions, back-end data capture and on-board reporting, and the principles of distributed version control and openness owing to the underlying Git architecture. It’s easy to tag a username in an issue or comment, and profile pages provide details on a user’s activity, allowing users to evaluate each other’s reputations and build a community of collaborators. Beyond the idea of social coding, the data capture and reporting features along with the open nature of distributed version control are the most exciting features of GitHub. It is these features that provide the foundation for investigating what we think is an emerging new approach to collaboration in our governing institutions and governance settings. Attempts to integrate these new approaches will face barriers from prevailing cultural norms within institutions while at the same time disrupting those cultures.

Unfortunately, as the number of folders and documents grew over time, it became easy to ‘lose’ things. Microsoft, Apple, and other operating system vendors attempted to create utilities that could be used to search for documents. However, these were often inefficient and at the very least slow. SharePoint introduces a new paradigm to store documents without the use of folders while making it easy to find specific documents you may want. This paradigm is based largely on metadata that defines the contents of the documents. While I will show here how to manually use metadata to organize and fine documents in a library, the new search capabilities of SharePoint can also use the metadata to help narrow down your search results. So with that said, let’s get started. One of the problems with folders is that the number of nested levels tends to grow over time like a Mandelbrot set (think fractal image). The result may look pretty, but it is almost impossible to navigate from one...

In response to my post about making SharePoint not look like SharePoint, Mike asked where the figure I quoted came from. He said:
"I would also like to see you cite your source for the statistic you quoted. The problem with statistics is that anyone can toss them out but unless you fully understand the context they are meaningless. Just because a company does spend extra on SharePoint customizations doesn’t mean that it was needed in order to make the solution work. Many companies find value in small things (such as branding) that others may think was a waste of money. This should not reflect negatively on the tool or be used to scare people away from implementing it."
1. Honestly, I didn't know it where it came from - I had read it last year, seen it in a couple of reports, but never followed up on it. Here's what I found.
2. It's a Microsoft number. A ComputerWorld article about SharePoint from April 2010

CuteFlow is a webbased open source document circulation and workflow system. Users are able to define "documents" which are send step by step to every station/user in a list.
It's an electronical way for doing (i.e. internal) document circulations. A document can be assembled from input fields of different types. The fields can be filled with values by the receiver of the document directly in the users E-Mail-Client. After a completed circulation you will have a completely filled document. Also attachments to the document are possible (i.e. for illustration material).
All operations like starting a workflow, tracking, workflow-definition or status observation can be done within a comfortable and easy to use webinterface.

“Kryptos,” the sculpture nestled in a courtyard of the agency’s Virginia headquarters since 1990, is a work of art with a secret code embedded in the letters that are punched into its four panels of curving copper.

…these executives were no longer talking mainly about their concerns, hesitations, or reasons for caution around Enterprise 2.0; instead, they were talking about their frustrations that their companies weren’t moving faster toward it.
For the first time with a group of ‘old economy’ CIOs, I was preaching to the converted. As far as I could tell, all of them bought in to the idea that Enterprise 2.0 was a big part of the solution to a longstanding and serious challenge for their organizations. They talked about it as if it were a no-brainer — something they wanted and needed to do. Their main challenge was getting their workforces to adopt the new tools, business practices, and philosophies.
