Chris Anderson (the longtail) interview about his upcoming book

Inside organizations, we have the longtail of ideas and information that needs to be connected to people, places, and things. The longtail, or maybe the edge, is where some of the best ideas originate to improve performance.  I haven't read a book in some time but Chris's new book about the longtail will certainly be one that motivates me enough to buy it and read it.

Realistic Customer Feedback

Social network software (Ideascape) pushes customer feedbabck further than was possible with traditional focus groups and surveys. Users submit product development ideas into an ongoing contest for approval by their peers. Ideas rated highly by other users bubble up to the top of the list, providing submitters with notoriety as well as reward incentives. Corporate marketers can take the highest-potential ideas into their own product development process.

"Enterprise 2.0: The Dawn of Emergent Collaboration"

Interesting piece from MIT Sloan about enterprise social networking software. I suppose the uptick or rate of adoption for businesses will accelerate in 2006 and 2007. LOL We've been spouting off about corporate social software, web 2.0 stuff for over three years to businesses that remain clueless. Of course, it's great to see Mr. McAfee introduce and explain Enterprise 2.0 (social-software, web-2.0) concepts in terms, hopefully, managers will GET.
