Wiki Divide

A colleague pointed me to this Bnet article. Have also had a number of conversations on this topic with younger folks in the organization. We are approaching a big change, loss of expertise from the baby boomers and a very different view of the online world in the newer generation. The baby boomers see online as a way to connect with systems and an easier way to make a phone call. The younger folks see it as a the means of connecting, researching and delivering. Thus the use of 'wiki divide' is apt. The reaction to activities like blogging is a sure sign of this. At least when folks join the company they do see we are experimenting with these ideas, but its still seen as research rather than value.
