Short updates from Day 3 of the 2011 Enterprise 2.0 Conference in Santa Clara. (I promise in-depth analysis after it all sinks in):
Tighter schedule yesterday (Wed), but still some great teasers from day three.
- Consumerization: Robert Scoble, Oliver Marks, and Larry Seltzer discussed the effects of consumer technologies and perceptions of approapriate use are coming inside the organization's boundaries. I think Scoble over estimated the number of organizations providing training on transparency around organizational information - Yes, as these gentlemen mentioned, Rackspace, Apple, and Microsoft have policies (some more draconian than others), but what's the overall percentage? (I'll have it for my follow-up.) Many headliners have policies, but are they doing training? Great opportunity for simulations.
- Sandy Carter, VP, Social Business Evangelism and Sales at IBM gave us a set of data they've been collecting around the "mobile panorama." Some of that data here:
- Gamification: The gamification panel included Rajat Paharia, Founder and Chief Product Officer, Bunchball; Megan Casey, Editor-in-Chief, Squidoo; and Mario Herger, Senior Innovation Strategist, SAP Labs; moderated by Gabe Zichermann. The panel and the twitter stream were both great. Here is a small subset of the Twitter stream from #e2conf #gamification, earliest on top:
I think the big arguments about what gamification means sets us up wonderfully for a deeper analysis.
Please subscribe to the blog to be sure to see the longer conversations on these topics. I look forward to the follow-up.
