Our case study seeks to investigate how Seriosity operates as a distributed problem solving network (DPSN) with the goals of addressing the organizational challenges of limited attention spans - embodied both by information pollution and knowledge overload. We first consider the background behind such challenges and why they will increasingly diminish organizational performance if not successfully mitigated by organizations of the future. We then consider how Seriosity measures the performance outcomes of its technologies - specifically, how does Seriosity know it is successful at translating elements of MMORPG's to help individuals better collaborate and coordinate their activities?
