Most Social Business products take a literal approach when adapting social networking concepts to the enterprise. So, you end up with social software that's based on chatter, rather than results. The Sparked platform was built from the ground up to enable the efficient transfer of value from one party to another... and to do it in a way that's meaningful, social, and rewarding. It uses social networking mechanics to unlock the assets of a company to the benefit of customers, employees, community, and the bottom line. So instead of chit-chat, you get results that matter.

Resolutions for Good

It’s that time of year when we all pledge to eat healthier, *promise* to hit the gym more, and even commit to learning that one thing we always find a way to put off. Personal goals are great, but imagine the impact we’d have if 1,000 or even 10,000 of us dedicated all that fresh start goodwill to making 2012 a great year for someone else.

TeuxDeux is a simple, designy to-do app and the first collaboration between studiomates swissmiss and Fictive Kin. If you like making to-do lists, you will love TeuxDeux. The idea was to build a bare-bones, but visually compelling and highly usable to-do app: Use the free browser-based TeuxDeux at work/home and then take your to-dos on the road with the iPhone app.
