Lauren Wood has written an article as part of the the Gilbane Report titled"Blogs & Wikis: Technologies for Enterprise Applications? This really just caught my eye as it showed up in my RSS reader from both Column Two and Moonwatcher nearly simultaneously. I'm trying to start my vacation this afternoon and figured that I might as well try to get one more thing up before 4 days of silence. You know this bring up a different point that's been in my head for a while. I wonder sometimes... Continue Reading

We started using it amongst a group of us to begin with and gradually started telling more people about it. Word soon spread and amazingly it is now the BBC’s second most visited internal...

This rather lengthy post (Ack! I'm breaking the rule of brevity) was mostly written on the way home from Northern Voice in Vancouver BC and should be the last of many posts on the subject. :) I feel like such a huge nerd sometimes. Not really in a bad way, but in a way that I’m somewhat proud of- in geeky terms. I’m with Sachiko at the US-Canada border waiting to get back into the US from Vancouver and Northern Voice. I asked Sachiko to drive because I wanted to write. So, I got out my... Continue Reading

Neville points me to a wiki put together by Constantin Basturea that has accumulated a great summary of posts and links from Northern Voice last weekend... NewPRWiki - NorthernVoice05 I started a wiki for the event but never did anything with it. Unless it becomes a recognized part of the event, it's hard to get people to use it effectively.

So I walked a few blocks from my hotel to the UBC conference, arrive, register make it in and a friendly attendee, Michael Klassen, taps me on the shoulder and says that I've apparently been dive bombed by a seagull. Yup, my first introduction to the Northern Voice folks was walking around with bird crap on the back of my jacket. Lovely. Tags: northernvoice

When you hit “publish�? it puts an RSS out into the world in addition to putting up a new web page. This evolution... Continue Reading
