Whose Side(wiki) Are You On?

Doc Searls

For example, early in the history of Web, in the place where publishing, browsing and searching began to meet, a convention by which authors of sites could exclude their pages from search results was developed.

Open Wiki. If you don’t have a wiki for your team, you aren’t setting an open and transparent team culture. Without a wiki, intelligence will be trapped in email and on network shared folders. .

Harold Jarche

In reading through the responses and sample comments, it becomes obvious that there are two technologies that limit workplace collaboration - e-mail & meetings. Most of us who work with social media already know that e-mail can be replaced by more appropriate tools such as wikis, instant messaging, blogs or micro-blogs for a number of tasks. A simple strategy to give workers some time back would be to require that all meetings have agendas (on a wiki) with accompanying minutes.
