Veni, Vidi, Wiki

14 Feb

Mike Kavis has been blogging about his experiences and challenges in implementing and leveraging Enterprise 2.0 technologies in his company. His posts got me wondering about how business users could be informed about and trained on these technologies, when I came across Veni, Vidi, Wiki (a play on words Veni, vidi, vici which mean I came, I saw, I conquered in Latin) in Wired magazine. It is quite comprehensive and takes a 360 degree view on wikis.

Veni Vidi Wiki

It is one thing to get IT people excited about having wikis and using them. It is quite another to create awareness among non-technical folk. As I was searching the web to see if I could find any good tutorials on wikis for laypersons, I came across this awesome video called Wikis In Plain English (you can also view it on YouTube). I was amazed by how short and simple it is and how effectively it makes its case. Common Craft who produced this video have another one called RSS In Plain English (also on YouTube) which is just as effective a tutorial on RSS feeds.

On a side note, if you are searching for success stories using Enterprise 2.0 look no futher than this blog post by Bill Ives.
