Bambi Francisco discusses the future of the workplace in the context of the MySpace generation:
I imagine that this college student’s future corporate life will be as Web 2.0 as his consumer life is now — an egalitarian world in which everyone contributes, opines, votes, connects, shares and collaborates instantly.
For instance, by the time he starts receiving corporate memos, he may feel it’s his right to immediately post a comment or edit every one he reads, even if it’s an internal memo to employees from his CEO. He may also think that he has a say in voting on whether the memo should receive a thumbs up or thumbs down. Imagine a note to employees from future CEOs with links at the bottom that says “comments” and “ratings,” and, dare I say, “edit.” Talk about making higher-ups feel accountable, and out of control.
