How to save businesses


Doc Searls wrote about how to save the newspapers. Good points there, including:

Informing is not the same as “delivering information”. Inform is derived from the verb to form. When you inform me, you form me. You enlarge that which makes me most human: what I know. I am, to some degree, authored by you.

What we call “authority” is the right we give others to author us, to enlarge us.

Read the rest of the post and think what it would mean for businesses in general. Is the website of your organization allowing others to author you? Can we be authors of each other or are you hiding behind corpspeak, paywalls and the fear that your own customers will beat you to death with crutongs (blog posts), if you tell the truth?

    Hi Teemu
    It´s easy to think, just take, not share anything. Sharing is maybe more than receiving. But can we receive? I was higly impressed about: informing somebody is to form somebody. What must I do to have this marvellous opportunity to learn or enlarge my consciousness, sense? Only allow this come true. Open mind appears sometimes like clishe. No more, I think we need more something like to receive, as you said to be authored by someone. Empower by others, do you?

    Hello, I’m trying to figure out who are the Finnish Corporate bloggers. You’re high on the list. Read the story here. This is a work in progress. It’s too early to draw any conclusions. I feel that CEOs in big corporations haven’t grasped the idea with blogging yet. What do you think?

    I’ll write a conclusion at my Kauppalehti Presso blog when I learn more about the bloggin pattern in Finland.
