VentureBlog has a post on enterprise social software and some of the companies that are working in the space, concluding that “This stuff may take a while to make its way into enterprises. But in the mean time social software is building a cadre of believers in the consumer space and with critical mass will undoubtedly come crossover.”
It is a question that I have been pondering over: how can all these new software ideas make us more productive – personally and in the groups that we work with? We need to combine the tools (blogs, wikis and the likes) with appropriate methodologies. What is missing is the recipe for putting together the various ingredients to help us manage the growing quantum of information that we need to manage in both our personal and professional lives.
