eWeek has an interesting article (“Finding Middle Ground in Office Use of Collaboration Tools”) that lists several collaborative, bottom-up software tools. The approach is interesting because it takes on two perspectives: (1.) the IT department, who’s not controlling the installation and use of these things (hence, “bottom-up” instead of “top-down”), and, (2.) the end users (the “bottom,” as it were) who are installing and using these applications.
As most of you, dear readers, know I’m big time into wiki’s, weblogs, and syndication (RSS) at work. It’s nice to see an uptick in the trend of mainstream trade rags all but endorsing their use.
