More coverage of the Enterprise 2.0 conference at Boston …

Stephen Collins reports on Dion Hinchcliffe’s seminar on “Implementing Enterprise 2.0: Exploring the Tools and Techniques of Emergent Change” (the state of Enterprise 2.0, the tools and platforms scene, best practices and Cutting-Edge Techniques and success stories).
