Luis Suarez loves activity streams. "They are probably one of the most fundamental, critical and relevant 2.0 capabilities that any company can turn into," he writes, "Call it ambient intimacy, declarative living or, my all time favourite, "narrate your work", Activity Streams will help, over time, reduce the amount of transactions and frictions you will be exposed to, provoking that opportunity for knowledge workers to be on top of the knowledge flow thanks to that openness, clarity and transparency of what's happening around you." I agree with this assessment, with the idea that they will actually reduce the in-box clutter that people suffer from, and that they can be used to support work, learning, and everything in between.
