It was a really good event – a kind of intranets anonymous. Big thanks to Simon Hill and Rod McLean for their warts’n’all stand-up routines. It certainly seemed quite a cathartic experience for all involved. Intranutters.
This morning a text message arrived from Twitter. I’m tracking the word “intranet” – more on subject-tracking in twitter here. It was none other than Richard Hare, yesterday’s whistle-blower and one of our hosts.
We touched on Sharepoint and accessibility, or rather the lack of it. Maybe we should set up the SHarepoint Accessibility Group – a self-help sub-group of Intranetters.
Some questions from the event…
- If you could build an intranet from scratch, what would you start with? And what would you tell people it was for?
- What are the best prizes to offer if you’re running a competition on your global intranet?
- Management won’t allow blogging because it might encourage cyberbullying. Where do you start?
- Is there a precedent in UK law (or any other country for that matter) where a company has been taken to court for an intranet not meeting DDA accessibility requirements?
