Erik Brynjolfsson and Andrew McAfee of the MIT Center for Digital Business and the Sloan School of Management have written an interesting book for our times — our economic times — with an appealing metaphor that any technologist will appreciate.

Okay, before I begin, a confession. I just spent 3 days at the Enterprise 2.0 2011 confab in Boston – and didn’t attend a single event that I didn’t do. But I have several excuses and I think that I’m still qualified to write what I’m about write. First, I participated in 4 events, the […]

Andrew McAfee is known as the father of Enterprise 2.0. In 2006 he wrote the paper “Enterprise 2.0: The Dawn of Emergent Collaboration,” which for many of us gave a single point of reference for the work being done in enterprise social software and “Office 2.0” until then. Since then Enterprise 2.0 has started to come of age, and I thought the Enterprise 2.0 conference in San Francisco would be a perfect opportunity to sit down and discuss the past and future of collaboration, social software and business strategy.
