here’s a look at most of the communication that happened at GitHub on one random recent day: February 4, 2014
One thing that piqued my interest was their internal-only social network “Team” which seems very reminiscent of how Automattic use WordPress & P2. Since I learned how Automattic use P2, I’ve been wondering if we could do something similar at Canonical. Perhaps we could use Google+ for this as we already use it for internal Hangouts, Ubuntu Developer Summit, and to power Ubuntu On-Air. There are ways to limit Google+ communities to members of your Google Apps domain.
(Side note: I hate having two Google+ accounts!)
I really need to finish coalescing my thoughts and put them into their own post…
The other point I noted was that their use of email was both minimal and individual – Team and GitHub itself are their primary ways of disseminating information.
It always interesting to see how others do achieve similar goals to yourself.
