Community and Reputation: Sarah Otner

I’ve been working with Sarah now for a the past few weeks around the topics of reputation and community and we finally had a chance to record this short conversation to let the broader community know about what she is working on and of course how they themselves can participate!

To get in touch with Sarah and participate in her research you can find her at the following addresses: http://www.sarahotner.com or http://uk.linkedin.com/in/sarahotner or http://openid.sap.com/SMGOtner

      Sarah's trying to answer this really interesting question.  So many people devote so much time to contributing to the SCN community, but besides the warm fuzzy feeling they get from helping their fellow SAPer's out, is there a real economic benefit?  Do they get bigger bonuses? Better jobs? Etc.  What do their employer's get out of their contributions?  Is it really better to give than receive? 

      If Sarah can get enough folks to participate in her research, there's a good chance she can figure out the real value of contributions to the community and then SCN can figure out ways to improve everyone's value from the community. 

      Get in touch with her if you'd like to participate-  it only hurts a little bit 🙂

      Hi to Greg and Sarah,
      yes, I think it is a very good idea. I had a little rant in my pocket
      (It needs to be said from time to time: GIVE and TAKE) for some days, and I think that is my way of saying I would like to participate. It is about me becoming an advanced blogger at sdn and the (disapppointing) reaction in projects around me.
