- Paul McDonald (Gilbert + Tobin) – presenting "naked" (that is, without the PowerPoint) I missed the start of Paul’s entertaining session on the golden rules of Enterprise 2.0, but was around for a group discussion activity on some rules that I’ll share my thoughts on later; and
- Matt Moore – currently talking about using social software to reduce email overload
(Matt has promised to post his presentation and a related podcast online soon).
- Alexei Fey – interesting tour of Savings & Loans‘ adventures in social computing, including how they use Facebook (20% of staff utilise it), their external blogs, the history of failure and then success with an internal forum, their alumni program, how they stay in touch with absent staff and marketing – his overall message, investing in this technology is cheaper than low staff morale (and you can reduce costs through open source and bringing the work inside);
- Kate Carruthers – explains why deploying social computing isn’t like rolling out an ERP system and provides a Machiavellian view of introducing enterprise 2.0, including an overview of drivers (e.g. social networking traffic now greater than email) and implications (e.g. findability – social computing inside the firewall will add to existing information management problems);
- Sharon Cartwright – how Ernst & Young is using Facebook for recruitment, although apparently E&Y doesn’t allow its use from inside the firewall;
- Andrew Mitchell – Andrew has previously shared his experiences with using wikis at Urbis at the NSW KM Forum; and
- Lindy McKeown – talking about using Second Life (and other 3D environments) in education – Lindy is working with the University of Southern Queensland to develop their Virtual Worlds Strategy.
