    While wikis and blogs were the first genuine contemporary social software used in businesses (groupware, and arguably e-mail were actually the very first social tools), it was the social networking model that ultimately became the leading one. It’s a little hard to believe that it’s been over ten years now since the first early enterprise social networks (ESN) emerged on the market to make their initial forays into our organizations.

    [Wiki] The new artisans of the network era
    One of the earliest knowledge guilds was the open source community, which developed many of the communication tools and processes used by knowledge artisans today: distributed work; results-only work environments; blogs & wikis for sharing; agile programming; flattened hierarchies; working out loud; and much more. Are knowledge workers the new artisans of the network era? If so, can you call yourself a knowledge worker if you are not allowed to choose your own tools?

    [Wiki] Don't crowdsource the Style Manual for government, create a new Gov 2.0 platform
    A pure wiki model might also be difficult to use in practice, if the standards are constantly shifting. I guess this is what I was getting at this other day: I was please earlier this week to see that the Australian Government was going to be going to market to update the Style Manual… … I believe it is time for a rethink of how the Style Manual is constructed, managed and distributed, matching the modern technologies we now have. Here's my proposal. Let's crowdsource the Style Manual.

I've mentioned Industrial Mold & Machine before, as they are a great example of a company making use of enterprise social software (in this case, Socialtext ) outside the typical office worker scenario.

    I created a wiki for the 2005 ALA Conference since I lived in Chicago and thought crowd-sourced info about the city might be useful for others.

I discuss transparency a lot on this blog. I see it as one of the three principles for net work.

    You need to look beyond the labels applied (like 'enterprise social network' or 'enterprise wiki') to particular products and actually look at how each are architected and the social experience design they support. When evaluating [enterprise social software], it's best not to create "checkbox RFPs" that allow vendors check off all the features they provide, Byrne said. Rather, ask how they address those requirements, seeking to tease out details on the differences between platforms.
