Implementation: Evaluating Collaboration
FEBRUARY 27, 2007
According to many sources, less than 1% of the people who visit blogs or wikis actually contribute or collaborate with the author of the wiki or blog. One of the goals of Web 2.0 and other technologies is to foster collaboration. But, there seems to be an issue with how many people actually collaborate. This is called the 1% rule. One of the major issues with collaboration in an academic or even a corporate setting is determining how to evaluate each individual's contribution to the overall collaboration. How do you ensure equal participation?

FEBRUARY 12, 2007

eLearning Tools - Wikis, Blogs and More
APRIL 2, 2007
Found via Donald Clark - Business Week article - The Wiki Workplace that discusses use of Wikis and Blogs and particularly their use. Wikis, blogs, and other tools will arrive in the workplace whether companies are ready or not, as younger employees tend to develop their own self-organized networks that cut across traditional corporate divisions. Geek Squad is a case in point. Many thousands of Geeks are using a growing suite of collaboration technologies to brainstorm new products and services, manage projects, swap service tips, and socialize with their peers.

So here are two associated pieces of content that are the article's "deleted scenes": Getting Started with Blogging Probably the first step in blogging is learning about blogging for yourself before you try to use it for your organization.

For those out there struggling with low traffic on a new blog, don’t give up hope! Look how low my numbers were in 2007 though (I started in December 2006, so the 6 views in 2006 don’t really count).
