Conversations in 140 Characters or Less Aren’t Exactly Meaningful

Having a meaningful conversation in 140 characters or less seems at times a tad, let’s say, disjointed. It’s not exactly meaningful.

But it is this Twitter like approach that is defining how real-time technologies are deployed in the enterprise.

AskMyBrainTrust looks at the real-time enterprise through a different scope. Users are not limited to a set number of characters to express themselves. Instead, the service uses a real-time model to elicit meaningful conversations with your brain trust, that inner circle you go to for counsel and feedback.

With most real-time services, the application provides better value when a critical mass of people participate. AskMyBrainTrust limits a group to seven people. Collaboration is limited only to the people in the group.

After the group is formed, a topic is submitted.

Idea are presented by members of the group. Each has its own threaded discussion.

Members of the brain trust vote on the ideas with the intention of driving the group to a consensus.

Real-time services with character limits make it challenging for meaningful communications across a tight group of confidants.

Email is even worse. Discussions scatter. Gathering ideas together to form a consensus almost has to be done on a one-on-one basis. Conference calls can sometimes feel endless without any form of agreement.

AskMyBrain represents the evolution of real-time technologies. Real-time services like Yammer and present.ly have their own fit for ongoing conversations with any number of people.

AskMyBrainTrust is not suited for those kinds of social conversations. It is a service for when you need to collaborate among a small group of people to reach a collective agreement.
