inverted relationship management

Over on a post on Naked yak about what a FRIEND really means, Chris offers a comment that got me thinking:

It gets even weirder, because of the friends blurring with business colleagues.

Maybe the nature and title of the relationship needs to reside in the hands of the one making the connection, not an outside imposed technological ‘cubicle’ definition.

Relationship specification and definition should perhaps be inverted and opened up – individual centred relationship context – self configurable extendable fluid relationship matrixes.  Just like cones of silence need to be. Supported by technology not defined by it.

It’s kinda like the personal social side of Docs VRM stuff.

Just a thought.


One thought on “inverted relationship management

  1. There’s this really really old study that says, “We do business with people like us.” When I read about it, a magazine was using it to show why Linux adoption was low. Turns out business people LOOK and ACT like Microsoft, not Linux. This hit me like a ton of bricks.

    Before that, I’d have said physical appearance didn’t matter a rat’s ass. Now? I’m not so sure.

    Well, in the online space, this gets weird again. People who TALK and THINK like us get our business. Right?
