NOTE: Reason for 3 w3 references (to show evolution of capability): w3 – Web site: when the Web was first introduced and served primarily as an information source w3 – profile: we began to ask employees to profile themselves so that they would receive information that they subscribe for through indicating their area of interest through profiling w3 – role-based: providing employees with consolidated, more comprehensive information based on their role in the company NOTE: Today’s Wikis and Blogs are an evolution of Forums Instant messaging: 1.5M messages/day Blogs: 28K registered bloggers; 4K active Wikis: 7,300 instances, 112K pages, 114K unique authors Forums (Web-based forums in 2006): 1,500 instances, 40K authors
  • Source: Brian Goodman BlogCentral is both a blogging platform and an aggregation dashboard. Blogs are personal online journals. Think of them as a personal homepage. They get syndicated (shared) so that content from one source can be automatically surfaced in a different context. Blogs: Empower people to contribute content. Aggregates content so people see what they are interested in. Lets people drive the change by simply providing the means. NOTE: When Blogs first surfaced, we had to make a business decision of whether to embrace it or tell employees not to use it. Since this latter was next to impossible, the decision was made to accept it as a viable form of on-the-job employee collaboration. However, IBM did develop a set of “guidelines” (a code of conduct, or sorts) for use by bloggers which, to our knowledge, have generally been accepted by the IBM community. Today, Blogs (and wikis) are an effective means of viral communications.
