  1. Great blog, Jeremiah…and terrific, insightful “About” page! I found your blog through my connection with ITtoolbox.com and Luis Suarez’s blog track-back (http://blogs.ittoolbox.com/km/elsua/archives/the-problem-with-wikis-is-people-time-to-provoke-a-cultural-change-in-the-way-we-share-knowledge-13398) about how sucky people are ruining wikis. You mention that you’re a “blog evangelist”…I call myself a wiki evangelist, nice symmetry there. Your complaint is valid, to a point, but as one of your repliers said (and I echoed on ITtoolbox), people are all we have. Though there are a number of similarities between wikis and blogs, the differences are profound. In blogs, other than comments, it’s all a matter of opinion on the blogger’s part. And, although all information is just opinion validated, a wiki is modifiable for that reason; when your (written) “opinion” can be changed…sometimes multiple times…by people, it then enters this nebulous realm of validation. As a tech writer, I see this better than most. If I became offended that my words were altered (vandalization would be too harsh in this context) every time this happened, I would need serious medication or a change of job in short order. On a related issue, social networking being the order of the day, nothing can replace the connections we (especially techies) are creating in the form of a virtual community; both ITtoolbox and LinkedIn (which I’m also a member) are great resources for this. When we created community and begin to respect each other’s opinion, we will be well on our way to substantiating (and therefore validating) the form of healthy collaboration that is the foundation of the sharing of knowledge in the form of wikis. Perhaps the wiki community could benefit from the same sort of cyber ethics that bloggers like yourself lay claim to; unfortunately, the majority of cyber-vandals are generally unlikely to adhere to these standards of ethics. Just a thought…purely my own, but as such, still worthy of consideration.

    I love your passion and insight on this topic. My comments were intended to generate conversation and in a tone that would indeed get folks talking.

    Cyber ethics don’t work well. The problem we’ve had with wikis is the anonymity. I’ve found the best wikis have a representative democracy or some type of human cop.

    Someday, the web will have a single ID or identity pass that will help folks to contribute and be accountable, until then, we’re going to have to deal with the bad seeds.

    Thanks for the wonderful things you said about my profile!

    best wishes

  3. Hi Jeremiah,

    Great blog!

    I stumbled across it doing some research about Online/Internet/Web Strategy.

    I am trying to find a good book on how to prepare Corporate Online strategies, supported by case studies. It is proving surprisingly difficult to find but I am not sure why; I would have expected (probably naively) that most medium to large organisations would have done their homework about this and documented their outcomes.

    Is there any book that yourself or other participants to your would recommend?

    Thanks

  4. Hi Jeremiah,

    Thank you for your response.

    Conversation Marketing is indeed interesting but what I am looking for is information about Online Strategies, which will include purpose, objectives, technologies, architecture, governance models, resourcing, risk/ competitive/ gap analysis, etc

    Have you ever seen any of these plans anywhere?

    Thanks

    Marc

  5. Thanks Jeremiah, this is a great blog. Lots of really useful informations. I am a student phascinated about social media, virtual communities and blogs, spending hours on the Internet looking for good posts and articles about those subjects as I have to build up my knowledge first. I am also looking for some good and interesting reseach questions in terms of companies and blogging, virtual communities, etc and find it quite difficult to find a really exciting and phascinationg research question. So any good idea is welcome

  6. Thanks for swinging by Christine, I think the first step is for you to come up with some questions and we’ll help you answer them.

    Check out the “web strategy” tag on the right nav, that’s the most helpful information.

  7. Hi Jeremiah,

    I am Rafa, from “The Best of Enterprise 2.0” blog, I reached your blog time ago and I saw through technorati that you linked some information from yours to mine. That’s great! I am proud of it. Just I would ask you one thing:
    How did you reach my blog first time? was it browsing? keywords in a search engine? linked from other blog?

    A brief explanation would be great to build up a case study on my analysis of blogs and its creation. The results will be forwarded to you as soon as it ‘s finished.

    Cheers!

  8. I’m looking for help finding the best web solution. We have a two-year herbal education program that we broadcast live over the internet. It’s a very primitive set up and is currently being handled by an audio/video company. I’m looking for more sophisticated ways to bring the education live to the web and I’m pretty overwhelmed and confused by all the new technology out there (boy – do I feel old!). Can you recommend 1 – what the best direction would be to go and 2 – what kind of courses someone would take to get a better understanding of the new technology?

    Thank you!

  9. Jeremiah – I didn’t find a link or information about future speaking opportunities. I’m the founder of a web entrepreneurship conference in Milwaukee, WI called ActionsTalk (ActionsTalk.com) and would like speak with you regarding the potential to speak at our conference. Looking forward to chatting with you.
