Web 2.0 with IT

So the the GFOC Web 2.0 group gave our Web 2.0 presentation to our IT department at their monthly meeting. It was a little rough around the edges, we will have to polish back up and then see if we can do a few more of them.

It is always so interesting to hear the different comments and feel the vibe of the group. It was cool to hear the IT geeks asking a lot of questions about ROI and how we think “Web 2.0” can make money.

I found this article/website which address some of that this morning, it is called Measuring Web 2.0: How to Promote the Features That Get the Best ROI. It doesn’t address the exact question the IT geeks had about how to sell it – but it addresses how you know what really impacts blogs, wikis, widgets and user-generated content you have.

The "tomaltman" blog is alive

This as been a project I have been interesting in doing for sometime now, but just never was able to get started. With my “new” duties in innovation – it became the perfect time for me to kick start the blog.

The Goal:
To research the web and web-based technologies – then report the finding to this blog for interest parties to read and comment on.

You will notice I am trying to be “web 2.0” with the blog and will include tagging with these post for people to sort and find different areas of information.

One of my favorite parts of the site is the option of RSS. This allows you to get notifications within Outlook by adding a feed. If you are unsure of how to do that – Take a look at the CommonCraft guy’s video.

Please use the comments section and we will all learn as we go.
