We were excited when we've found out that a part of 5th Planet Games team is using Rizzoma for collaboration. We got in touch with Devin Becker and he told us about the team and game development workflow.

Collaborative Recruitment with Rizzoma

What you can learn after lookingthrough 1000 CVs? Nothing. And HRs know it. This is what annoys them so often.

You need a genius for an important part of the business. You make a jobpost. Get tons of emails. First you filter them and get hundreds impressive CVs. You spend a week on this and don't

have even one interesting candidate yet. You can reply to all this hundred emails and spend the next two weeks doing the monotonous job with replying and forwarding an infinite flow of messages.

The worst thing about this that after all this hard work you don't know very much about candidates. Important skills like teamwork, sociability, critical thinking, learning ability are still unproven.

Knowledge Management in Politics. Usecase by HCSS

Stephan de Spiegeleireis senior scientist at The Hague Centre for Strategic Studies (HCSS). He has Master's degrees from the Graduate Institute in Geneva and Columbia University in New York, as well as a C.Phil. degree in Political Science from UCLA. He worked for the RAND Corporation for nearly ten years. The following text is by Stephan and his collegues.

HCSS is a small European think tank dealing with strategic policy issues with a special focus on (inter)national security. We work primarily for public customers. Our team—also known as Metafore Team—were spun off from the larger Dutch research and technology organization TNO, with about 4000 scientists working in various policy domains, in 2007 and became a separate private legal entity that retains close ties with TNO.

Minto pyramid principles

Wouldn't it be great if you could be more productive? One way to do more in a day would save on the time you spend sleeping. According to a study by J. Christian Gillin a 17-year old boy once stayed awake for 264 hours straight (about 11 days) and set the world-record with that. But staying awake that long is probably not a very smart thing to do. Nor it is very good for your attention span. A better idea would be to use smart tools that enable you to communicate and collaborate more efficient. In this article we take a closer look at how Rizzoma helps you with time management and what the Minto Pyramid (MPP) has to do with that.

It helps our clients to understand their business much better, differentiate from competitors and — what's the most important — to get profit from added value of their services and products. Using essentially new communication aproach we greatly reduce costs on our service for our customers.

We are not the only one who go in for development on such a level. There are lots of giant branding companies like Landor, Fitch, Wolff Olins,

Mildberry and BBDO Branding. They all have a great international experience and are famous for their cases. But the thing is that only big companies can use the service of these giants. We have been working in advertising business for long time and we really got tired of such a situation in which the company is implementing the budget and trying to please bosses. It is just the waste of money and annoyance of consumers with boresome and odd advertisments.

No office no cry

If you are on the side of company-customer or agency-executor it's very difficult to change the situation. That's why in 2010 we all togther told everything to stuff it, left previous jobs to create our own funfair with blackjack and customers. Our team consists of three founders (they are in Moscow) and several professionals (designers, programmers, art-directors, animators etc) from all over the world (New Zealand, Sibiria, Ukrain, Chech respublic).

Mostly the work of design studios and branding agencies consists of: —meetings with client/breefings —incompany breefings with designers, copywriters and others —brainstorming and discussion of the project —the work on the project itself (design, page layout, copywriting, coding etc) —preparing a presentation —presentation to client.

Virtual office

In spite of most of these processes are virtual, it is common in advertising industry to spend lots of money to tie up employees to a definite office and make them work there. We work with small and medium business so we can't afford to waste our

customer's money.

The only way out is to build the work with communication according to new principles. —Skype. Meetings with clients, breefings, incompany breefings, brainstorming. —Dropbox. Keep up the project documentation, presentations, work materials. —Rizzoma. Reports for all the team (the description of negotiation with clients), breefings description, brainstorming results and other ideas on the projects, detailed information about the development of the project, gathering and discissing of all ideas (promotion, creative for clients, new project ideas).

Overloaded email

When I worked in the advertisng agency office I had to waste a lot of time checking working email and correspondence (it was always accompanied with telephone calls and rectification because it is impossible to understand something clearly in a long email chain), the designer was always aware and somewhere around, of course, it was also difficult for him to concentrate on work. Long way through traffic jam to work or to the meetings with client — all of it was annoying.

Now my working day begins and ends in Rizzoma (it doesn't matter what time exactly and in what time zone the day begins). There is no need for extra calls and emails clarifying the state of work, giving feedback, you just open Rizzoma and everything is clear. You should just answer the questions set by other team members (it is often like this — you sleep, they work and on the contrary) and get down to work — nobody distracts your attention, nothing is lost.


Rizzoma lets you work with quite big documents containg many logical interrelations and what's the most important — it's much easier to discuss and make correction. Our main product is concept of the brand (after reading it all staff of the company from a sales manager to company's president know company they work at and how to make its brand the strong one). The template of the concept takes 2-3 pages in Word, a complete document occupies 6-8 pages. It contains many categories and subcotegories so to discuss such a big document is very inconvenient in Word.

In Rizzoma one can easily assign each other questions and tasks on each item of the document without constant waste of time on exchanging different versions of the document (we used to have at least 10) and searching new changes in it.

Rizzoma new Google Wave alternative in 2013?

D11WaveAlternative Rizzoma new Google Wave alternative in 2013?

Only at Google 3 million active users is not enough to keep a service alive. Google wants growth, enormous growth. So, when the number of users was less than they expected they pulled the plug. Google decided to stop with the wave service. In 2012 the service was read-only and since august all Google Waves were not accesible any longer. The technology behind Google Wave was superb. Developers all over the world were in awe of what the team built. In this article we

UI not made for human beings and to many complex functions

The User Interface was not as user friendly as it should be. Sure, geeks loved it but what about other types of users? Google wave had an incredible potential but the user-interface was just to complicated to grasp for common people. They should have tested the UI on other groups of people and make adaptations.


Secondly many first time users did not quite see the added value in comparison to traditional e-mail or simpler collaboration tools. The majority of people said that

Google Wave was not made for human beings. The users were confused. They did not know what to do with Google Wave. It was too sophisticated.


Anil Dash even said that Google Wave was extremely impressive. The components of Google Wave included:

  • Built around robust XMPP protocol – (formerly known as Jabber)

  • (JSONRPC) – Robot protocol

  • (OpenSocial) – Gadget API
  • (Javascript) – Wave embed API
  • Client-server protocol (GWT)

Here is a full list of Google Wave protocols. Each of these were very impressive. But developers replied not only with enthusiasm but they also wanted to add features for their own existing applications. And that is one of the reasons adaptation was not widespread.

The good news and what we’ve learned

But there is good news. Rizzoma learned from all the amazing things Google Wave developers did and we also learned from things that did not go so well. With a brand new team of developers we are setting up a new team collaboration tool. Easy to use for everyone. 2013 Is going to be our year and we are excited to invite you to use Rizzoma’s free colloboration software!

Online Collaboration Tool for Education

By Felipe Beltran Mejia a physics teacher from  Unicamp University (Sao Paulo, Brazil)
I teach General Mechanics, that is, a Classical Mechanics course in a US university. This year I'm lecturing for students of the Chemical Engineering program and we are studying subjects such as Newtonian Mechanics, Projectiles, Oscillators, Orbits and Rigid Bodies Mechanics among others.
1 Online Collaboration Tool for Education
Encourage Problem
Nowadays it is hard to encourage students to participate in class actively. Students have lots of questions but most of them are shy to ask. I believe they come from an educating tradition that does not encourage them to discuss openly in class. Curiously, that problem is more common with girls while boys are more active inside the class.

Rizzoma for CrowdSourcing

Screen%20Shot%202012 12 09%20at%205.20.56%20AM Rizzoma for CrowdSourcing
Crowdsourcing is a process that involves outsourcing tasks to a distributed group of people.
The term "crowdsourcing" is a combination of "crowd" and "outsourcing," coined by Jeff Howe in a June 2006 Wired magazine article "The Rise of Crowdsourcing". It wasn't the invention. History has enough cases when

people unite for common purpose.
For 6 years old existence of the term Crowdsourcing has become a huge industry reporting new achievements. With development of post-industrial economy and the spread of decentralization the crowdsourcing automatically has become an actual Network Business Tool.
Surprisingly many crowdsourcing projects are giving you the opportunity to take part in government decisions. Maybe we can say this is a Goverment 2.0 prototype.

Two-person Idea Incubator

A couple months ago the IdeaMensch community posted an interview with an awesome TV copywriter Colleen Wainwright. 
Answering the question about her three favorite online places and what she loves about them Colleen mentioned Facebook, for keeping up with people and blowing off steam, Wikipedia as "the world's largest repository of things that may or may not be true" and Rizzoma as a brainstorming online software ("a kind of two-person, idea incubator"). 
That is why I invited her for an interview and here is how she introduces herself:2 11 Two person Idea Incubator

Education Process with Rizzoma

Here is a story about how Rizzoma can be used for scientific research and education. The example comes from the group Integrative Systems Biology (, which is situated in Linköping, Sweden. The group includes approximately 15 people, but many more people are involved in the usage of Rizzoma, since they are using it for collaborations with other groups, both in Sweden and abroad.

An interesting comment related to biology and the theory of evolution is that ‘Rizzoma’ is just the botanic term ‘rhizome’ spelled a bit differently.
Here is what they have to say about

Our team called 'More Smoked Leet Chicken' take part in information security competitions 'Capture The Flag' (CTF) every year. The last competition 'CodeGate' was in Korea in March and the next one HITB is scheduled for May 2012 in Amsterdam. In our opinion, due to its strict deadlines, clear goals and teamwork, this competition is an example of an ideal project.

Twitter capoeira with SilverBird

I use Twitter for work—to find news on interesting topics and people who are currently interested in them. Many contemptuously refer to Twitter, so it's value should be explained. The advantage of Twitter is in a good search, lots of open to communication users and simple communication scheme. The more I understand the logic of Twitter's work, the more it reminds me of how associative thinking works. But that's a philosophical if not romantic subject and it shall be covered in a postscript.

How we use Rizzoma for documentation analysis

Story by Vadim Musteata, analyst working on system implementation

I started to work for a new company and was assigned a task, which was new for me. The task consisted in developing about 200 reports for a CIS of a large international company. The project was underway before I came, and the documentation consisted of a massive SRS and lots of diverse files: schemes, text descriptions of BP's, meeting munutes, screenshots, report temlpates, etc.
