Overcoming Enterprise 2.0 Hurdles with Social Interaction Design

Nice, there’s not only Thomas Vander Wal‘s slides but now also a video of his webinar for Thoughtfarmer at their blog. Click through to have a view. I like it that he’s starting off with some dirty little intranet secrets (and yes, I know that’s no coincidence) – but I even more like the usefulness and cohesion of his model-driven talk and perspective. And it’s getting even better when he’s delving into the psychological aspects of collaboration (ie. the social comfort zones we enjoy to be in and dread to move out of) and the usability aspects of interaction and collaboration. These get neglected too often and with foreseeable results

    Thank you for the kind feedback. Regarding, the intranet secrets, I have 7 or 8 common complaints that I hear, but most companies don’t want to publicly admit to having these problems. ThoughtFarmers “Dirty Little Intranet Secrets” is a great way to have something to point to to help anchor some of these points.

    Thomas, oh yes – I assume that by facilitating the odd laugh they are helping us all to see clearer about stark realities of the status quo, while they avoid being “damned”.

    Nobody is allowed to punish the fool and jester – it’s a tradition 😉
