Intranet content management remixed

Reading time: 1 minute

Ever since I saw them and started using them I could see that if we had Delicious, Technorati and Bloglines on our intranet it would change the way we work and our perception of what an intranet is.

It’s something I’ve been presenting on at events recently to fellow intranet professionals.

There are so many reasons why this is important and exciting. Here are three:

  • it takes the intranet to the next level and beyond the “firewall” – covering the web, the stuff you can see through your browser (whether it’s hosted internally or externally)
  • teams, projects, communities of interest, communities of practice have new ways to share information, including bookmarks
  • potentially fascinating (and useful) insight available from the tag-clouds that start to appear, an organic topology of interests and a real-time overview of what an organisation is thinking and maybe even which way it’s going

Thanks to Chris Tubb for sending me a link to this article by David Millen, Jonathan Feinberg, and Bernard Kerr of IBM about the excellent sounding stuff they’ve been up to in this field.
