    Abstract/Description

    The author explores the concept of ‘social intelligence’. She
    suggests that, in the world of digital commerce, it may be
    defined as ‘insight which is based on collective understanding
    of work practices’. She offers three scenarios to
    support the suggestion that the World Wide Web allows new
    forms of insight to emerge as it greatly extends the toolkit and
    the content base of business intelligence. The scenarios
    explore three activities: ‘social browsing’, ‘social formatting’
    and ‘social filtering’, that are examples of social intelligence
    activities in the world of the virtual workplace
