James Enck interviews Euan Semple of the BBC Digilabs regarding their adoption of social software across the enterprise. It sounds like another big and established organization is getting it. I bet Tom has things to add here.
Some pertinent snippets:
The first thing we did was to put in a bulletin board. 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 BBCâ€™s second most visited internal site with staff using it daily to ask questions and get answers.
The second tool we put in is a social networking tool that lets users set up a page of info about themselves and can then be searched for particular skills or interests.
We then put in a blog server and now have around 70 blogs being written by about 100 people.
Lastly we have implemented a wiki...The people most attracted to using wikis are those involved in writing formal documents, policy, manuals etc...
Getting a good RSS aggregator is going to become more important as the volume of activity increases.
