Tony Karrer

There were about 7 examples mentioned including Intuit using a Wiki-like system for customers to ask questions/get advice around taxes, using a group blog with students prior to a formal learning event, the US Army's use of collaboration tools to share best practices in Iraq, and several others. I discussed the fact that there was a common Adoption Pattern that went from personal adoption to work groups to organization. 20,000 wikis with more than 100,000 users.
