It’s all About “Connections” and not About What You Think

Like I said, this post is not about “connections” but about how words are “connected”. In fact, it’s a new game produced by Corey Davis and his firm Conxsys. Watch the video and like me, you will fall in love with this awesome game available on all of the popular app stores.

The “connections” between a group of words is sometimes quite difficult to decipher. Have a go, and be sure to leave the some feedback if you can for the developers.

The One Product to Go and See at IBM Connect 2014

If your company is using or plans to use IBM Connections I highly recommend that you go and visit the Kudos booth at IBM Connect to see a demo of their Kudos Boards app.

We love Activities in Connections. They are awesome! Working together on projects and leveraging Social Tools is a very powerful way of working. However some Activities can get BIG and sometimes users need to look at their tasks or organise the Activity slightly differently. Sometimes users don’t need to see everything that is going on but just one part. Sometimes it would be easier if Activities was more visual.

So wouldn’t it be great if you could visualise an Activity…as a Board….similar to a Kanban Board? Imagine if you could drag and drop your Tasks and Entries within Activities as progress and circumstances change . Wouldn’t it be neat if you could filter the content of your Boards by Person, by Priority, by Colour code, or by any other filter you want?

Here is something Adam Brown from ISW put together to showcase what Kudos Boards can do for your employees:


I’m also proud to say that I have been an adviser to Adam and ISW for both Kudos Badges and Kudos Boards.
