Vuuch is initially focused on the issue list, as this drives the majority of project related email.  As people get comfortable with Vuuch they move on to things like the managing all discussions around ECOs or other types of forms and use cases where communities of experts are created that project team members can bring into the resolution of problems.  Al the while a complete history of what is done is being captured in Vuuch, which for compliance based industries like FDA and FAA, delivers on compliance requirements and general knowledge capture.  The history of course stays in Vuuch but it can also be exported to PDF (http://www.vuuch.com/enterprise-social-system/vuuch-v5/2012/04/09).

There is a bigger security problem with email.  Social can fix this.

I agree Scott. Part of the difficulty in adoption, I believe, will be with convincing users there is not a security issue. That would require an interface that would allow some data to be shared while other data is not in the loop. Younger users may not be as concerned about security.

Rob,  I like your thoughts on this issue.  I think the demand for a good collaboration tool is there.  Some of the social media constructs are useful for project collaboration, but not all.  Once some software company comes up with the right mix and makes the user interface really clean - I think it will be a market winner.

You're right, ChasChas, security is still a concern. Facebook seems to be spending a lot of time denying that it shares user data.

Absolutely, ChasChas. It's in the very nature of social media to share information. There would have to be very clear lines on what can be shared and what can't be shared, So someone would have to be tasked as the referee.

The software must eliminate way to get careless with info - if there are ways to be careless, poeple will get careless - it's so easy for any of us.

This "hardcore" engineer still believes in security.

Good point, Chuck. Chances are the early adopters will be young engineers who would take to social media quickly and easily. I do think there would have to be a very clear benefit to encourage adoption.

This is yet another story that demonstrates why engineers shouldn't be too resistant to social media. The right business model will come along sooner or later, and when it does, the engineers who are open to to it will have a leg up.

Thanks for the info, Naperlou. I think the key to what you're saying is "How it gets implemented is another story." I suspect it will be a simple matter of benefits versus effort. At home, social media offers personal connections. At work, there needs to be a different benefit -- improved design, improved projects.
