[I]I like baseball, movies, good clothes, fast cars... and you. What else you need to know? ~Johnny Depp playing John Dillinger in the movie Public Enemies[/I] I love that quote from the movie [URL="http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1152836/"]Public Enemies[/URL]. Everything you want to know about a guy in one sentence. If you think about it, Facebook knows everything about you too. It doesn't ask you for a succinct, pithy summary like Dillinger gave his would-be girl friend, but it collects that information just the same in bits and pieces, and it sells it to marketers who want to know everything about you.

Web 1.0 consisted of mostly static web pages full of lengthy text that did not follow "above the fold" rule. Thus, many of these webpages felt like lecture notes. So what do you think of how businesses use social media which is now part of Web 2.0? It seems that many business users use social media to "lecture" rather than converse. This can be seen in the form of self promoting tweets and no two or multi way engagement with followers. What do you think?

I was watching a [URL="http://link.brightcove.com/services/link/bcpid1568178642/bctid1906856143"]video[/URL] of a panel from the Web 2.0 Summit on [URL="http://www.readwriteweb.com/archives/cloud_computing_panel_at_web_2.php"]ReadWriteWeb[/URL]. I've had a growing fascination with Cloud Computing in recent months, and this particular panel included key players from Google, Salesforce.com, Adobe and VMware (with Tim O'Reilly acting as panel moderator). As each man made his opening statement, one statement in particular jumped out at me from Dave Girouard, who is president of Google's enterprise division. Girouard stated that his company's long-term goal is to open up the Google development stack to outside developers. If this is true, then it could have some serious long-term …

According to a new [URL="http://www.FaceTime.com/survey08/summary"]report[/URL] by FaceTime, an Internet applications control specialist, the number of data leaks and malware incidents continues to rise as employees continue to embrace the whole Web 2.0 thing within the workplace. In fact, FaceTime says, the use of such applications is so widespread that some 60 percent of all companies surveyed now have at least eight of them in use on their corporate networks. "For all four years that FaceTime has commissioned this survey, end users have claimed they have the right to download and use whatever applications they choose to help them do their …

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]. During an interview with [URL="http://www.brentleary.com/"]Brent Leary[/URL], a partner at [URL="http://www.crm-essentials.com/"]CRM Essentials[/URL], for an article …

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 …

Is your vendor giving you trouble? Won’t respond to your calls? Won’t help with your problem? Who you gonna call? Well, when I spoke to [URL="http://www.brentleary.com/"]Brent Leary[/URL], a partner at [URL="http://www.crm-essentials.com/"]CRM Essentials[/URL], yesterday, Leary surprised me when he suggested if your vendor won’t help you, go on [URL="http://twitter.com/home"]Twitter[/URL], find a person with expertise in the problem area, and ask them. You might find you get an answer, but you may also find that by publicly calling out the company, you might actually get some attention. We live in a Web 2.0 world, which means you have a variety tools at …

OK, so Barack Obama is not the first politician to 'get' the Internet, heck Al Gore invented it after all. However, sarcasm aside, what Obama has done is grasp the true power of the next generation Web: he has transformed political campaigning at a national level thanks to social networking and, perhaps above all else, YouTube. Bear with me. Although I am not an American, I do follow the US political circus with considerable interest, and I am something of a geek for good measure. I have seen how both Howard Dean and John Kerry have embraced Internet campaigning in …

Have you heard the one about the book publishing company with a reputation built upon the back of the Open Source movement, which set its lawyers on a rival for using the term Web 2.0? Apparently [URL="http://www.oreilly.com"]O’Reilly[/URL] has applied for a ‘service mark’ to cover Web 2.0 when applied to business and educational conferences within various fields of computers and IT use. Oh, and the person defending both the service mark application and the cease-and-desist letter sent to reinforce it, is called Winge. But this is no joke, it’s actually deadly serious. The letter sent to Irish non-profit organization [URL="http://www.itcork.ie"]IT@Cork[/URL], …
