The Bamboo Borg

I love this picture, quite the juxtaposition of organic and inorganic designs and material.

The photo was taken in Hong Kong.  The scaffolding is made out of bamboo which is tied together to build the superstructure used outside of the building under construction.

In some ways this makes me think of the interactions that online and social community software companies try to capture.

Some companies like Jive, Mzinga, and of course HiveLive (where I work), take the organic predisposition of humans to interconnect and bind.  In turn, the software provides the structure and meta-framework that allows for the maximization of discovery and interactions, both human and information centric.

Of course I’m greatly biased as to which company does it the best, cough, HiveLive.
