Pilar recommend the Kellogg Insight podcast episode on Managing Conflict in Virtual Teams because it focuses on multicultural teams, though they also take a broader view. http://insight.kellogg.northwestern.edu/article/podcast-tips-for-managing-conflict-at-work

The Conversation with Mandy Ross from Sococo

 

Sococo, what it is, what it looks like, what it was designed for. How this workspace works.

"At a certain point after you work all the time in Sococo, the technology  disappears and all that's left is the relationships between the people that are there."

The history of Sococo.
How the Cloud presented a threat and an opportunity... The mindshift when going opensource.
