I saw H20 a few weeks back and thought it was a really interesting project. Do you think businesses will try to measure the use of these tools? Will they conduct ROI and put a dollar amount on the productivity gains?

bill Ives

Lee - Thanks for your comment. If organizations see playtlist as siimply a useful utility like the phone or word processing they may not do ROI. If they do look at ROI it is best done by aligning the tool with a business process and see how it improves the process. In this case the ROI measure should be aorund an aspect of process improvement and not generic time saving. Bill

I posted on Social lists including H2O

That's true. Assuming that a mature company with resources uses a software system to monitor workflow processes. i.e. processing customer requests. Then associating a playlist with "processing customer requests" and tracking the playlist's use and activity (changes or derivative works) could allow a company to at least infer that the playlist intervention had some impact on the workflow process?

Just thinking about it outloud... Thanks.

Wow, great idea. I always need to share links with people at work. Would H2O from upon this? They describe themselves as 'a web-based home for educational collaborations.' The content would still have to
be very worth-while educationally, I would think.

Brent - It is a free tool. There are some conditions for use. It is also open source and you used to be able to get the source code. I am not sure of the current status. I used it for a while and still have my play lists. The navigation could be improved and if it was a commercial product I am sure it would be. I would encourage you to see how it stands now. Bill
