When 2.0 Comes to Work
JP Rangaswami muses about the differences between email and social network messaging (the latter lets you "avoid destructive looping"), and ponders the inevitable move of 2.0 tools into the corporate mainstream: "I've now seen both [Flickr and YouTube] used in anger within the enterprise, and I've been delighted to see their use...The Web is normal and commonplace for the youth of today, and the web's tools are as familiar as friends. They will use the web and its tools in ways that we haven't dreamt of."
We touched on some of the youth-movement themes in this article.
Rangaswami figures large in this article on the IT-driven transformation of BT, where he is managing director of BT Design; he first appeared in CIOI in a column by Dan Gillmor, back when JP was CIO of investment bank Dresdner Kleinwort Wasserstein and blogs were still something of a novelty in the business world. These days, I contact him via Facebook.
