I read with interest a recent post by one of my favorite bloggers, Paul Culmsee that I want to share. I especially like Paul's blog because:
- He and I care about some of the same things: Project Management, Governance, SharePoint, and pop culture (although I prefer Eric B & Rakim to Opeth, and I haven't yet had cause to integrate Tom Cruise into my blog's content, thematically)
- We're unlikely to compete with each other for business, given the distance from Perth to Boston, MA (11,635 miles).
- He's generous with his knowledge and his opinions, and has welcomed correspondence and feedback on these topics.
- He writes in a breezy style, accessible yet insightful.
OK, now that the honorifics are dispensed with, I'll get to the point: Paul blogged this week on an innovative approach to SharePoint governance: a product called DebateGraph, which serves as sort of a visual wiki that shows graphically how ideas relate to one another. An example follows (sorry for the static image -- can't fit the interactive version into this format):
Seven Sigma has created downloadable DebateGraph SharePoint web parts to allow users to visually show the debate of any issue within a SharePoint wrapper, but to me the most interesting application is the one where "n" is the biggest: Seven Sigma's public, Internet-facing debate about SharePoint governance, shown in the example shown above.
So, if you have strong opinions about SharePoint governance (I know you're out there -- you haven't been shy about expressing your opinions with me), please take a look, vote, and make your voice heard about what works and what doesn't in SharePoint governance. Join the debate today!
