Further Evidence Wikis and Blogs More Productive Than Email

25 07 2007

Social Computing News reports how another company (this time Motorola) is increasing productivity and communication by relying less on email and more on a variety of networking tools like wikis and blogs.

“Intranet 2.0” came onto the radar when Motorola’s VP of IT strategy told VisiCalc inventor Dan Bricklin in an interview that Motorola, #49 on the Fortune 500, has almost 2,000 internal wikis, and 2,700 blogs used by 60,000 of their 68,000 employees daily.

Of the 60,000 people, 4-5,000 contribute content everyday.  Efficiency and productivity cited as reasons for deployment.

I highly recommend the two Bricklin podcast interviews that are referenced here. They are the “Best Podcasts I’ve Heard on Enterprise Adoption of Social Media.”
