Implementing Enterprise 2.0

Highly recommended: Ross Dawson's Implementing Enterprise 2.0. I find it an excellent strategic overview of the concept, components, key issues and implementation strategies from the business/organizational/people perspective. Sample chapters are available for download on the web site. On the site as well are discusssion forums for the different chapters, and a forum for offering suggestions for "Release 2.0" of the guide.

I see this as a highly useful key resource for building common language/understanding and engaging key stakeholders on building Enterprise 2.0 strategies.

Magic of the Internet

Yet another example... a reference to "Informing Oursleves to Death" on an Information Zen Enterprise 2.0 discussion post let me to a thought provoking speech by the aforementioned title given by Neil Postman to the German Informatics Society, 11 Oct 90, Stuttgart sponsored by IBM-Germany, which led me to the Neil Postman information page, which kindled my interest in reading his book Amusing Ourselves to Death as well as pointing me to Joshua Sowin's thoughtful Fire and Knowledge blog, and a post that references an interesting cartoon, based on the forward in Amusing Ourselves to Death, that compares/contrasts the future created by Huxley and Orwell. 

The links/relationships created between information can be as valuable as the information itself.
