Social Networking Inside the Enterprise
This short article makes the case that social networking inside the enterprise is more important than outside. This was precisely what I was involved with before graduating from the mega-enterprise. How do we use blogs, podcasts and wikis to create a social form of knowledge management? I think this can work, but does depend on many things, like what is the culture of your enterprise? How can you get enough people involved in the effort to include key knowledge? It can be tough because the best people you want to involve are usually the busiest. Should you hire archivists? Or can such a system evolve like the Wikipedia? Could past or retired employees be useful to the system? Certainly f you can get them to participate.
