On Dave Gurteen's knowledge management blog, a fascinating take on the "2.0" meme:
recently spent the whole of January in SE Asia; giving talks and
running knowledge cafes in Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok. As
always I learnt as much as a I taught at these events.
Most of us
understand what Web 2.0 is all about as we move from a read-only web to
a read-write or participatory web.
And we are starting to come
to grips with so called Enterprise 2.0 where the concept and
technologies and social tools of Web 2.0 are moving from the open web
into organizations.It is still early days and there are many issues to
be grappled with as we try to balance the structure and stability of
the old world with the more fluid and complex nature of the new.
the "2.0 meme" is starting to affect everything. In a talk in Kuala
Lumpur I was asked how you implement Enterprise 2.0 and I was talking
about some of the barriers when someone spoke up and said "We will
never have Enterprise 2.0 until we have Managers 2.0!” In other words
it was managers and their out-dated mind sets that was a major barrier
And a few days later while giving another talk at the
National Library in Singapore I found us talking about Libraries 2.0
and Learning 2.0. It then hit me that “2.0” thinking was permeating
everything. People were also taking about Business 2.0 and Education
2.0.So what does this mean in its broadest sense?More
