Web 2.0 Managers

"Manager 2.0", by Kathy Sierra from headrush. Interesting how Kathy's management ideas overlap with the contrarian management ideas of John Hagel, edgeperspectives.com.

"One dramatic difference between mature tech companies and the Web 2.0 startups is the way employees are managed. Or rather, the fact that they are not "managed." Most Web 1.0 companies (like, say, my former employer Sun... they put the dot in dotcom, remember?) are not only too big, but their management practices are just too old school (and not in a retro hip way) to foster a company culture that matches the culture of the new community/user-centric Web 2.0."
