Goodbye Blackberry Goodbye Spam – Hello Wiki

12 04 2007

Email is so Web 1.0 unless of course you have an addiction to Blackberries.

A book I highly recommend that might force some of the aforementioned to reach for their Xanax is the latest by Don Tapscott called “Wikinomics.”

One of the more exciting findings was how large corporations were finding a significant reduction in email traffic within their corporate structure when they used wikis to collaborate on projects. Dresdner Kleinwort, a European-based investment bank, is using wikis to such an extent that email volume has decreased as much as 75% among those who collaborate more via wiki than email. Content that was stuck in email is now part of a 2,000 page internal wiki database that can be useful to someone.

God I hope this virus is contagious.
