I spent the better part of this week at the[URL="http://www.e2conf.com/"] Enterprise 2.0 Conference[/URL] in Boston where I saw an excellent presentation called "The Dark Side of Enterprise 2.0." During this session, Kathleen Culver of Alactel-Lucent suggested that one of the big negatives of Enterprise 2.0 and by extension, social media in general, was that it presents us with too much information. She suggested it's impossible to filter through the noise to find what matters to you. I think to some extent she's right, but it also has the opposite effect by providing you with a trusted network to help point …

[I]How come I can't let go? I'm between two worlds ~Tom Petty, Between Two Worlds[/I] As I watched vendors navigate the changing software world last week at [URL="http://www.e2conf.com/"]Enterprise 2.0 in Boston[/URL], it struck me that the old companies are trying desperately to hold onto to the markets they have dominated for so long. I listened as executives from IBM, EMC and Microsoft tried their best to convince everyone that despite their old-world pedigrees (or perhaps because of them), they were the best choice for facing the new world of Enterprise 2.0, collaboration and sharing. To be fair, all three companies …

Over the past year or so, [URL="http://twitter.com/"]Twitter[/URL] has become a full-blown communications phenomenon. For those of you who don't follow every social networking trend. Twitter is a micro-blogging site where you enter your thoughts, whatever they may be, in 140 or characters or less. Experts say if you aren't paying attention to Twitter, your business may be missing out on more than you think. Last July I became aware of the power of Twitter when I wrote a post called, [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/blogs/entry2814.html"]Trouble with Your Vendor, Try Twitter[/URL].

Web 2.0 came crashing into the enterprise a couple of years ago and was given the new moniker: Enterprise 2.0 (which was coined by Harvard Business School Professor [URL="http://blog.hbs.edu/faculty/amcafee/"]Andrew McAfee[/URL]). While business has come a long way when it comes to understanding social networking tools and how to use them in the enterprise to manage knowledge and foster collaboration (see [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/blogs/entry2592.html"]Spooks 2.0: The CIA Turns to Wiki Technology[/URL]), many businesses still don't have a clue about how enterprises can take advantage of this technology inside the corporation. This is a multi-dimensional problem because employees (especially younger ones) want to transfer …

I spent the day yesterday at [URL="http://www.enterprise2conf.com/"]Enterprise 2.0[/URL] in Boston, all in all a fascinating day and great conference, but what caught my attention was a presentation by two representatives of the CIA, and I’m not talking about the Culinary Institute of America, but *the* CIA, as in the preeminent intelligence gathering organization in the U.S. It seems that the CIA has found that the wiki is a very efficient way to analyze large amounts of information and has dubbed their offering: [URL="https://www.cia.gov/news-information/featured-story-archive/intellipedia-marks-second-anniversary.html"]Intellipedia[/URL]. Fancy that. According to speakers Don Burke, who has the very cool title of Intellipedia Doyen (which …
